Bats girls give it their all in hard matches

April 19, 2017


First cab off the rank this week with no under-15s the juniors came out firing.

King Valley and the Bats had a fair tussle on their hands with each goal having to be worked hard to get.

Hannah Ely and Ellie Culhane showed some great flow and sync working together in the goal ring while Hannah McIntosh stepping up from under-15s with Kirsten Hooper started to find their feet and put great pressure on defensively.

Ely hit the deck and had to be taken off, the new line-up took a bit to work the changes but stayed close.

The Bats came off with some great positives for their second game showing fantastic flexibility to positions.

Best: Hannah Ely, Kirsten Hooper and Kyra Bell.


Travelling to King Valley this round the B-reserve girls knew it was going to be a tough, hard game.

To their credit they all stood their ground and played some great netball during the game.

Emma Boman lead from the front in the centre position and fought hard throughout the mid court earning her best on court.

The defensive end was again put under the pump this week, but with the leadership of Becky Hallett in GD they produced some really impressive defensive skills.

Becky is new to the position of GD, but she is definitely showing she is a natural defender in the ring.

Kate Hair and Nina Gardiner certainly used their height to their advantage pulling in quite a few rebounds.

Allanah Grubisa stood out in WD this week with her positioning throughout the court and strength going after the ball.

The girls are starting to jel together and will see some success on the scoreboard in the future.


King Valley 56 — Goorambat 46.

Best on court was Carlie Hogan, Georgia Spinks and Donna Beckley.


King Valley 45 — Goorambat 34.

Best on court was Olivia Wolff.
