Moama has come from behind to defeat Rumbalara in the Murray Netball League.GEORDIE COWAN April 29, 2014 3:32am
Moama’s A grade netball side continued its positive start to the year with a come-from-behind win against Rumbalara.
The visitors started to gain an advantage in the third term, but the Magpies came back and ultimately won 40-34.
The win lifts the team to third spot on the ladder with two victories and a good percentage.
‘‘Overall we played okay. It wasn’t one of our best games,’’ coach Emma Greaves said.
‘‘We had a bit of a lapse in the third quarter but it was really good to see the girls pull through in the last.
‘‘I was really happy with how we did that.’’
Adding to the challenge for Moama was two tall Rumbalara players, one at each end of the court, who won a lot of the aerial battles.
‘‘We’re a short team this year, so we are going to struggle against tall players,’’ Greaves said.
‘‘It was good to get over that and know that we can do it.
‘‘We have to work a bit differently to get around those taller players.’’
Greaves said defender Breanna Bookham played a consistent match, while Steph Jones did really well through the midcourt and when shooting.
She also praised attacker Maddie Couroupis.
Moama won all eight netball games, which made it a clean sweep for the day with the four football teams.
‘‘From a club perspective it was a very successful day for us,’’ Greaves said.
‘‘We are very happy, especially against Rumba because they’re not an easy side to play against.’’
