It was another successful round for the Deni Rovers netballers on Saturday, who tackled new Picola and District Netball League rivals Tocumwal.

The Roos’ A grade took on a very rounded Tocumwal team in what turned out to be a one-sided contest, with the home side getting up 43-20.

The girls had a slow start and struggled to get on the scoreboard, however their competitiveness and attitude lifted in the second half and they were able to match their opponents and gain some respectability on the scoreboard.

With some more hard work on the track and more game time playing together, the talented Rovers girls can look forward to a great season.

Awards: Globe Hotel - Janice Hilton; White Lion - Jane Hillier.

B grade: Deni 41 def. Tocumwal 32.

It was a good win for the B-graders thanks to some strong defence which allowed many turnovers. Accurate shooting and solid mid-court support gave the Rovers the edge.

Awards: La Pure Hair - Kellie Brunker; Smoko Shak - Casey-Lee Thommers.

C grade: Deni 58 def. Tocumwal 18.

Another good win for C grade, featuring great defence from Kelly Thorpe and Jacinta Goodear, leading to many turnovers, while Shannon Bulmer and Vicki Beames helped the shooters find their mojo.

Awards: Motiv8 Health - Kelly Thorpe; Tuppal Hotel Finley - Shannon Bulmer.

C-Res: Deni 23 def. Tocumwal 18.

The C Reserve netballers played their first game for the season and came out on top. A good result.

U/15s: Deni 31 def. Tocumwal 13.

The under-15s had a great day on the court, showing persistence and dedication to take out the win.

U/13s: Deni 12 def. Tocumwal 8.

A tough game this week, narrowly winning by four goals. The three defenders worked exceptionally well through the mid-court and in the ring.

Awards: Wired - Ruby Murphy; Rovers canteen - Chelsea Fishlock.

U/11s: It was great to see the under-11s working so well together with excellent defending, passing and goals. Awards went to Jade Hussey who displayed great work in the goal circle, Mackenzie Emery who showed great determination, Emma East who showed solid defensive work, and Ellie Fishlock for her great interceptions.
