2nd  SEMI FINAL – SATURDAY (31st AUGUST 2013)

Mount Burr was the stage for a series of exciting games of netball on Saturday for the Mid SE Netball Association. With Hatherleigh and Kalangadoo playing in most grades for the day, surprisingly there were still six clubs represented. Following from last week’s close encounters, this week saw more close matches played between the top two sides from each grade. This has set us up for some exciting matches next week at Robe as teams hit the court for their last chance to make the main event.

 

13 & UNDER:
Mount Burr 39 defeated Robe 38

The first close encounter for the day saw these two talented sides fight out a nail biter. With conditions already warm early in the day, the girls played extra time to decide a winner. Chloe Vanderhorst ran well through the centre court for the Mozzies. The shooters from both teams shot with accuracy throughout. Jess Venn played well through the centre, but she was hard pressed to stop the drive of Vanderhorst. Chloe Venn shot well for her team and was well supported by Lucy Perkins who shot with consistency in the last quarter. Both teams took time to settle with unforced errors early. Maddie Nunan did a great job in defence for the Roosters while Mikaila Potter defended well for the Burr allowing them to take the final win by one goal under pressure.

Best Players
Mount Burr – Chloe Vanderhorst & Mikaila Potter
Robe – Maddie Nunan & Jess Venn

 

15 & UNDER:
Hatherleigh 54 defeated Robe 36

A strong first quarter saw Hatherleigh take a lead which set them up for the game. Hatherleigh was just too strong for the Robe girls who made lots of errors. Hatherleigh capitalised on errors with Abby Wight shooting well and rebounding any missed shots with strength. Rhianna Kerr and Demi Carter in goals provided height in goals for Robe, but they struggled to get in front. The Eagle’s Sophie Bishop ran hard through the centre all day, and while Ellie Gould did a good job, she was unable to stop the drive. Robe’s defence was under pressure all day with Keely Venn an Alli Lindner fighting hard against an in form Wight. Annabel Brooks and Maddie Pulmer showed their versatility with tight and adaptive defence. Robe made some changes through the mid court at half time with Ciarne Tomlinson going into centre, Gould out to WA and Emillee Sawyer into WD which gave a lot more drive into their attack line. By the final whistle, the Roosters just could not make up the early lead, allowing the Eagle’s the win.

Best Players
Hatherleigh – Annabel Brooks & Abby Wight
Robe – Keely Venn & Alli Lindner

 

17 & UNDER:
Hatherleigh 41 defeated Kalangadoo 15

An excellent game by all of Hatherleigh’s players saw them take the win on the weekend. The first quarter was very rushed as nerves got the better of both teams while the defensive pressure was strong from both sides. The Eagles applied a lot of pressure all over the court to get back the many turnovers that Mikaila Pitt and Jade Lythgo managed for the Pies. The second quarter saw the Eagles pull away with some excellent driving and passing through the midcourt with some lovely finishes by the goalies. Kalangadoo’s changes at the quarter break worked in their favour getting some much needed goals on the board, with Brianna Coxon and Sarah Croser returning to the goal circle.  The combination of the Eagle’s Emily Nettle and Sarah Allan proved too strong and Hatherleigh ran away with the game in the second half taking them straight through to the Grand Final.

Best Players
Hatherleigh – Sarah Allen & Erin Watson
Kalangadoo – Mikaila Pitt & Jade Lythgo

 

B RESERVE:
Kongorong 42 defeated Tantanoola 40

This was a very close game in warm conditions. Hijisa Radley and Julie-Ann Cytrowski were the strongest players on the day for Tantanoola, while Issy Shelton and Reanna Baldwin stood out for Kongorong. The Hawks lead for the first half taking a two goal lead into the half time break. Their mid court was too strong for Tantanoola and many turnovers saw the Hawks extend the lead to five at three quarter time. Kongorong led for most of the day with Tantanoola coming back a little in the last, but it was too little too late with Kongorong maintaining a two goal lead at the final whistle.

Best Players
Kongorong – Issy Shelton & Reanna Baldwin
Tantanoola – Julie-Ann Cytrowski & Hijisa Radley

 

B GRADE:
Hatherleigh 46 defeated Tantanoola 42

Both teams started nervously with goals being missed at both ends of the court, as is often the case in finals. The pressure from defenders at both ends caused turnovers and some wayward passing. Mel Gibson drove the ball through the centre court with strength for Hatherleigh and passed accurately into her goalies. Unfortunately this wasn’t enough as her team went into the first break three goals down. The second quarter saw Tantanoola playing some controlled and disciplined netball with Tarrah Taylor showing patience as she fed their goal circle. Hatherleigh settled more and they attacked the ball harder which required the Tigers to adjust their play accordingly. With a slower second quarter by both teams, Tantanoola controlled the game until half time. The third quarter saw the Eagles fire up and peg back the lead. Mardi Wight and Zoe Blum started to find their aim in the goal circle, and there were more defensive turnovers increasing their opportunity to score and reduce the margin to one. The last quarter saw  Amy Hateley use her voice to encourage her team. Morgen Lindner continued to shoot with precision for the Tigers, but they just didn’t get enough of the ball. Hatherleigh’s defenders tightened up and some unforced errors by the Tigers lead to a 4 goal win by the Eagles.

Best Players
Hatherleigh – Mel Gibson & Jill Paul
Tantanoola – Tarrah Taylor & Morgen Lindner

 

A RESERVE:
Kalangadoo 37 defeated Hatherleigh 36

Kalangadoo started the game well, taking advantage of Hatherleigh’s nerves. The Pie’s finished the first quarter with a 5 goal lead at the first break. Hatherleigh fought hard to get back in the game with the defenders at both ends of the court being on top of their opponents. The score had been pegged back by half time which lead to both teams making changes at half time. Cate Lepley went from defence to attack and Kerry Smith gave Elllie Sullivan a rest for the Eagle’s camp. The Pie’s Kirrily Kramins came on at WD with Jessie Clements having a break. With the Eagle’s in front by 4 at three quarter time, Kalangadoo made more changes which unsettled Hatherleigh. Kalangadoo was up by one at the final whistle, with Amanda Casey and Kelli Williams being named best for the Pies and Maddie Redman and Amy Faulkner a standout for the Eagles.

Best Players
Kalangadoo – Amanda Casey & Kelli Williams
Hatherleigh – Maddie Redman & Amy Faulkner

 

A GRADE:
Hatherleigh 55 defeated Kalangadoo 48

Narelle Ryan fought hard against Tara Fabris who held well and shot with accuracy. Hatherleigh had the early lead with some handy turnovers through the centre court. The Eagle’s Demi Smith provided solid defence on the wing against the talented Kirsty Egan while the Pies Jenna Pitt worked hard against the quick and agile Sarah Allen. Unforced errors by the Pies allowed the Eagles to make the most of every opportunity. Georgina Brooks and Kaitlin Smith were quick and agile in defence forcing uncharacteristic missed shots. The Pies rebounded with strength and converted well under pressure. The Pies cribbed their way back by rebounding any missed shots with ease, while Leah Ousey stole some intercepts from Fabris to give the Pies the lead by 5 at the end of the first.

With a solid start to the quarter by the Eagle’s, they kept momentum and managed to reduce the margin back to 1 by the half way break. The second quarter was tense with players from both sides making unforced errors. Both teams applied strong defensive pressure, causing missed goals at both ends.

During the third, injury time was called for Jayde Peacock following a heavy clash with Brooks. She was treated for a finger injury which slowed her progress for the remainder of the quarter. Ebony Cunningham was missing some shots, but strong rebounding by the Pies salvaged the opportunities. Half way through the quarter, the scores were level with the Pies missing shots and the Eagles rebounding with strength. Allen was passing into Fabris with precision, however the pressure was too much and shots were missed. The Eagle’s defensive pressure was unstoppable with multiple held ball calls causing turnovers in the Eagle’s favour. The half time score saw the Eagles up by four.

The Pies made a number of changes at three quarter time which saw Jenna Pitt move into GA, with Kylie Allen back to GS and Ebony Cunningham back to WD. Kirsty Egan swapped into centre with Peacock going into WA. Sloppy passing by the Eagles allowed the Pies back into the game. Mid-way through the last, the lead was stretched to 7 goals, showing that the finals experience of the young Hatherleigh side has prepared them well for victory.

Best Players
Hatherleigh – Keston Green & Kaitlin Smith
Kalangadoo – Kylie Allen & Jayde Peacock

5THE FM’s Southend spring plunge is here

Spring Plunge Poster

by S Lowe 5 THE FM newsonline wattlerangenow

They’ve pumped iron, pedaled through the back blocks of Millicent, worked out at an incredible pace and now with just one more day to go, they are ready to shake off winter and welcome in spring by plunging into the icy waters of Southend Rivoli Bay.  Two 5 THE FM bathing beauties, who ‘thought it was a good idea at the time’ have anxiously watched the sky,  wondering if they would have to weather the wind and the rain of the last few weeks or if the sun would shine on them.

Funds raised by the girls will contribute to the renovations of our studios and help us move into the new broadcast studio just that little bit sooner.

Now, here is the real challenge – you can join the girls if you like, so make sure you have your togs on under your winter woolies incase you are tempted to take the plunge too.

There is still time to support them with your pledge by calling 0400 290 664

Please join us for a sausage sizzle at the Southend Beach by the boat ramp at 11 am Sunday 1st September to celebrate the beginning of Spring and cheer the girls on.
