Hatherleigh 48 def by Kalangadoo 61
In perfect conditions for netball, Hatherleigh met Kalangadoo at home. Sarah Haines took the court for the first time for the eagles in 2014, slotting in to C. Hatherleigh came out firing with plenty of defensive pressure, getting out to a 4 goal lead. Both teams’ goalies started strongly shooting 16 each without a miss.
The second saw plenty of turnovers from both sides, with Kalangadoo’s Jade Lythgo providing the drive the visitors needed as they pulled away to a 2 goal lead at 1/2 time.
Leah Ousey and Kylie Schultz changed at the long break and Kalangadoo jumped out to a 5 goal lead of the third with plenty of movement and patience in the attack line while Hatherleigh on the other hand were forcing passes into the goalies with Kalangadoo capitalising on any turnovers as a result they gained a 10 goal lead.
Hatherleigh made a change in the last with Keston Green going back to GS and Demi Smith moving out to GA; however Kalangadoo Caroline Davey, Melissa Russell and Jenna Pitt kept Hatherleigh’s defence working overtime for the whole game. Kalangadoo ran out victors by 13.
Tantanoola 40 def by Glencoe 57
The game started with both teams playing a high standard netball, goalies at both ends we’re shooting with accuracy. The defensive duo of Bromley and little for Tantanoola were applying tight pressure forcing Glencoe into errors, which on the whole we’re being converted at the other end by Walker and Matthews enabling Tantanoola to take a 3 goal lead into the first break.
Pressure all over the court saw the second quarter a tightly contested affair. Donna Jaeschke was starting to get her hands to plenty of ball and her precision passing into McDiarmid enabled Glencoe to be within one at the main break.
The third quarter belonged to Glencoe, who piled on the goals and had winners all over the court. The full court pressure applied by Glencoe forced many turnovers, and the tigers were punished by the accuracy of the Murphy’s goalies. Ashlea and Laura Edwards were finding plenty of space and driving hard into attack providing a safe avenue into the circle. Glencoe led by 13 at three quarter time.
The game continued in the same vein in the 4th and Glencoe extended their lead to 17 at the final whistle. Tant were best served by Kate Bromley and Simone Little, whilst Glencoe had good players all over the court Donna Jaeschke and Ashlea Edwards were named as best for the winners.
