Mobil North Rockets Camels has booked a spot in the Deniliquin Netball Association open grade grand final after defeating CWS by 11 goals on Saturday.
Linda Harvey and Abbie Thomas worked well together in the ring for CWS, but the defence from Camels Nat O’Shannessy and Belinda Schoeman was too strong in the end, 39-28.
Camels mid-courter Richenda Bond took a nasty fall and will hopefully be fit to play the grand final.
In the elimination final on Saturday, Coach House won against IGA Purtills Rubies, 53-31.
Nicole Cult was good in the centre for Coach House, while shooters Elyse Hood and Naomi Werner were also important.
Rubies defender Callie Learmonth didn’t give up and her teammates at the other end, Rachel Bucholtz and Aimee Leifting, attacked brilliantly.
In the only intermediate game of the day, Mobil North Rockets Wild Cats defeated RSL Dynamites, 40-34.
Wild Cats attacker Mackenzie Cheeseman was a sharp shooter along with Sophia Mitchell, while Dynamites’ Emma Lumber worked hard alongside fellow defenders Abbey Flanagan and Keily Nethercote.
Wild Cats were leading by 15 goals at three quarter-time, but RSL fought its way back into the game and narrowed the margin to six goals.
In the end, however, the Wild Cats ran out the match to earn a spot in the grand final.
In the junior grade, Coach House and IGA Purtills Power battled it out.
Coach House mid-courter Liv Stubbings was great at pressuring Power and pulled out some beautiful deflections.
Power’s shooting sensations, Georgia Denny and Caitlin Paul, used great teamwork in the ring, but Coach House came up victorious, 34-17.
In the junior grade elimination final, RSL Magic’s Eliza Ford and Ruby Kirk were great in defence against Mobil North Rockets’ Mia Jenkins and Matilda Taylor.
As much as RSL worked well as a team, Mobil North Rockets won the match 45-29.
Modified grade’s Ella Harvey showed her skills all across the court for Swifts and Chloe Paton was excellent in the midcourt for Firebirds.
Vixens’ Gabby Clarke pulled out some great intercepts in defence and Thunderbirds attacker Zoe Metcalfe was an accurate shooter.
