Saturday was a successful day for the Deni Rovers netballers with every grade scoring a win against Berrigan at home.

The Roos’ A grade had a hard-fought game to defeat Berrigan 50-14.

In B grade, the Deni girls displayed outstanding passages of play and excellent team work.

Great feeding into the shooters saw the Roos take a win, defeating Berrigan 61-25.

Awards: Dimity Bloomfield (Globe) and Tori McCulloch (n8 Health).

The girls in C grade had a very strong and impressive win, defeating Berrigan 76-15.

Awards went to new recruit Annie Bulmer and Shannon Bulmer (n8 Health).

The C-Reserve team had another strong win, with the girls playing well as a team. The final score was 21-0.

After a tight first half, the under-17s knew they needed to do something special to build on their two-goal margin.

Important intercepts by determined mid-courters Carissa Holmberg, Caitie and Penny Henson, some strong defensive play in the circle, and determined play by Kelsie Geldenhuys, who took an impressive 11 rebounds from the opposition, saw the Roos extend their lead in the third quarter.

But it was the final term where the girls really shone, taking hold of the game to win by 11 goals, 43-32.

Awards: Penny Henson (Rovers canteen) and Carissa Holmberg (Wired).

The under-15s had a great start to the day, especially the shooters who were exceptional and didn’t miss any goals to help set up a 13-goal half-time lead.

The mid-courters managed lots of intercepts and the defence worked hard, getting lots of turnovers which led to a fantastic win, 53-19.

Awards: Grace Mathewson (Total Bliss) and Annie Tonta (Wired).

It was a great game in the under-13s, with the Rovers down 7-4 in the first quarter but they fought back hard for the rest of the game to win 29-14.

The match was a great example of how good the Rovers can play as a team.

Awards: Lily Marchant (Rovers canteen) and Katie Godfrey (Rockets).
