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.
