Deni Rovers’ A grade netballers suffered a disappointing loss on Saturday, going down by 11 goals to the visiting Picola United at Memorial Park.
Coach Stewart Bulmer said the girls ‘‘were never really in the game’’.
Deni trailed by one goal at quarter time before the margin eventually increased.
Better players were Carissa Thommers and Janice Hilton.
Final score: Picola 53 def. Deni 42.
Although B grade had a closer game, the Rovers girls were also defeated. They eventually went down by three goals, 50-53.
Awards: Maxi Jerrem-Snell, Globe Hotel; Vicki Brunker, Mobil North; Kelly Brunker, Wired Entertainment.
C grade came out on top by just one goal. Final score: Deni 40 def Picola 39.
The C-Reserve girls also managed a win, getting up by five goals, 29-24.
The under-17s took a while to settle into the game with Picola capitalising on the Roos’ unforced errors.
Solid defensive play and persistent teamwork saw the girls take the lead late in the first quarter.
A few strategic changes made at half-time, and again at three-quarter time highlighted the versatility of the young Roos, who were able to take the win 52-44.
Awards: Carissa Holmberg, Reflections; Rebecca Maw, Wired Entertainment.
under-15s had a couple of players back from injury and others playing in different positions, which helped the girls put in four solid quarters.
Midcourt created space and turnovers, shooters combined well and rarely missed, while defence kept the pressure on the opposition shooters for lots of turnovers. An excellent win, 53-14.
Awards: Grace Mathewson, canteen; Lainey Blake, Wired Entertainment.
In the under 13s, Deni defeated Picola, 28-11.
The under-11s displayed a great team effort in the cold conditions on Saturday.
All the passing and leading the team has been working on was noticeable and paid off.
The shooters worked well around the circle and shot accurately, while defence worked hard all game and took some great intercepts.
Awards: Maisy Edwards, Wired Entertainment, for consistently working hard to be in front of her opposition to lead out for the pass; Emma East, McDonald’s, for great overhead passing and always having ‘‘hands over the ball’’.
