Rennie 33 defeated Picola 18.
A brilliant game to watch from the B Grade girls. Court flow was excellent with the mid court drivers Nada Nolen, Leah Rowe, Georgia Hope and Jess Westwood. The shooting combination of Kristy McDougall and Laura Nunn was on point, moving well and shooting goals from all angles.
The defence end was outstanding, with multiple rebounds from Jill Haack and Lisa Handreck.
Great team win, and looking forward to taking on Strathmerton next.

C Reserve – Rennie 26 def Picola 23.
On a lovely day for netball, playing a new opponent and only having seven players the girls knew they had to dig in this week if they wanted to grab a win.
The defensive combination of Emma and Emily (M&M) were on fire with reflexes of lightning, to pull off some great rebounds and intercepts.
Mid-courters combined well with Shani, Jas and Coach Dee allowing the ball to come down to Zoe and the sharp-eyed shooter in Ez in the goals.
It was a great team game today. Training is still imperative, to keep working on skills and developing ourselves as a team.
Awards: Mulwala Bakery– Jasmine Burns, Judd’s Mensland – Sharni Snelling, Action Bike & Ski – Erin Lawford and Brew-it Coffee – Zoe Worland.
Under 17s – Rennie 51 def Picola 39
It was a hard fought win for the girls. Mya stepped into goal shooter for the first half, and after finding her confidence, shot really well alongside Brylee, who was dominant all day.
Sophie then came into goals for the second half and continued the great attack on the ball. Both Emily and Charlie fought hard all day in defence and are starting to combine well and step up their defensive pressure.
The mid courters Catherine, Anika and Phoebe moved the ball well down the court to help come out with a good win. Awards: Judd’s Mensland – Anika Walsh, Balance Spin Studio – Catherine Shaw and The Athenaeum – Mya Bye.
