Best Players: N. Martin, A. Williams, B. De Ruyter, J. Dickson, R. Odell, Q. Christy

Back at home this week and a replay of last year’s grand final against Frankston YCW. We headed into the game with 9 players from that game, such has been the change in personnel this year. Our first quarter was really competitive but you need to able to sustain that over the full 100 minutes to have any chance against a class outfit like YCW.  9 goals to 1 in the second quarter from YCW all but shut out the game for us. It was great to see the continued development of players like Martin, DeRuyter, Halsall but it’s just frustrating everyone that more wins are not on the board. Back at home this week against Chelsea (who we beat first time around), we just need to keep our heads up and the results will take care of themselves.

It was great to get back to the Kennel after a few games on the road and a bye, but it was always going to be a tough game against YCW. With inaccurate kicking in the first quarter and for the rest of the game .By half time we were a fair bit behind and just treading water, but to the boys credit they did not throw the towel in ,come to think of it I don’t think we have done that all year we were just out played by a better team , which we must all try and get better and be as good as them which will come with hard work.

PS until we win our first game and we will, I will be wearing some way out shorts each Thursday night GO DOGGIES

Best Players: K. Merriner, H. Anderson, L. Swaney, B. Bird, L. Ambler, G. Turner

We entered the match against YCW with high expectations. Our effort in the first half of the game had us within striking distance at half time however our structure completely collapsed after the break and YC were able to open us up with really good ball movement under very little pressure. The experience highlighted several areas of where we need to improve as we move into the second half of the season.  Better players on the were Kyle Merinner, Hayden Anderson and Lachie Gorka.

What an exciting day of netball last week against YC-end result 2 wins each, them, us, them, us.

D’s struggled without our regular goaler and Steph had to do a power of work under the post. Pippa tried her heart out in defence as we were down a defender as well.

C’s had a great tussle all day and it came down to the last thrilling quarter. Goal for goal Larissa and Bec T managed to sink a couple of beauties. Sophie at WD put pressure on their feeders whilst Gabby and Dee in defence capitalised on any misses.

Once again we took control in B grade with a blinder in the first, Britt and Holly on song in goals. With an even second we were still ahead at the main break. However the third was a disaster- Stonecats were able to penetrate our defence and outscored us by 10! We were unable to make up the difference in the last and let a winnable game get past us.

With determination the A’s took the court as the underdogs which suits us fine. Katey and Sarah were under pressure from physical defenders all game but the strength of our tight defence by Alex N, Candace and Georgia gave us the edge. With a handy lead at half time player rotations kept the pressure up for the second half. As Georgia ran off at ¾ time to catch a flight to Bali the Stonecats got a sniff and we started to panic as they narrowed the lead. Some strong rebounding at both ends allowed us to break away in the last few minutes to snare a 6 goal win.

Next victim to feel our bite - Chelsea.
