After gaining some momentum last week against Karingal we were keen to take it up to Seaford but hadn’t won there in a few years. They came out hard and tried to rough up some of our prime ball movers but the boys stuck at it well and went to the first change all square. It didn’t help Dale Whelan and Mick Gay doing hamstrings in the second quarter but we stuck at it to be all square again at half time. After half time we exploded and ran all over Seaford, Warrick Miller was grabbing everything down back with Emilio Bitters and Joel Miller running riot through the midfield. The last quarter was pleasing to see us string together 4 quarters and run out winners by 44 points. Bring on Bonbeach next week.

Our game against Seaford who sit second on the ladder was always going to be a hard game ,the first quarter was tough & we went into the first quarter about 6 goals down. The rest of the game was a struggle with Seaford being alot more stronger and more physical team, but to the boys credit in the second half they kept on fighting and did not throw in the towel. Special mention to a few of the boys- Kyle Bird, Jack Crawford and Zac Norman who as the year gone on are getting better with every game well done boys.

With our slow start to the year we are determined to finish the season strong and Seaford at home are always tough to get over. With a solid start we were able to control the game and keep Seaford at arms length for most of the match. Another really even performance from our group who are now consistently improving. We are now looking forward to the run home where we play some high quality opponents who are also on the up. If we can stay healthy and injury free the finals are well within reach.

A GRADE
The A grade girls got off to a slow start against Seaford to find themselves 10 goals down by the half time break. The girls found a way to lift and started to turn on a show in the second half. Sarah Pike proving to be a versatile asset to the side, playing in the mid-court and feeding the goalers effortlessly. Jess Gordon and Candace Page maintained relentless defensive pressure to afford the side the many turnovers they needed to get back into the game. It was Tess Cooper that was the standout who ran centre for the whole match and awarded best on court.

B GRADE
Once again the B grade side fought valiantly undermanned. It was a welcome back to the court for club favourite Leisel Sliwinski, even if it was for just one game. Meg Feutrill was brilliant in defence as was our other C grade fill-ins, Sarah Williams and Melissa Thorne. Holly Newton played a wonderful game in goals for her first game back in 4 weeks.

C GRADE
C grade had a tough hit out but managed to hang on and win by 1 goal. We are depleted for players in the C grade at the moment and so thank you to Emily, Chloe and Lucy for playing again in the C grade. My best on was Lucy who has been playing some pretty amazing netball that everyone has noticed and commented about. Coming up and playing a second game after her own d grade match. And again Meg you are a force in that defensive end, as the B also struggled to side a team, Meg went and filled in for them after her own game, playing an absolute ripper there also. We are sitting 6th on the ladder and cannot be counted out of finals just yet

D GRADE
D grade had a very convincing win against Seaford. Best on was Sam Kozoil who had a great goaling game, shooting at 83 % and scoring 30 of our 49 goals. Again our defensive end worked hard and the goalers rewarded that work. We sit 5th on the ladder and are still well in contention for finals.
