ROUND one of the Gawler & Districts Net-
ball Association summer season cranked into
gear last Tuesday, with Roseworthy notching
an impressive 33-16 win over Gumnuts.
Roseworthy started well to take a three-goal
lead at the first break, before strong defending
from Alyssa Sanders and Tegan Couzner restrict-
ed Gumnuts’ scoring and extended their side’s
lead to eight goals at half-time.
Jasmine Gower worked hard through centre
court for Gumnuts, as did team-mate Shelley
Tester in goal attack, but it was not enough to
reduce the deficit heading into the last quarter.
The final quarter was all Roseworthy, with
shooter Alison Schahinger converting to help her
side to a strong 17-goal victory.
LUTHERAN started its season with an
emphatic 40-8 win over St George’s.
Lutheran retained many members of its winter
preliminary final side, while St George’s fielded
a relatively young outfit, making for a one-sided
The first quarter set the scene for what would
be a tough evening for St George’s.
By quarter-time Lutheran had opened an 11-0
lead and was not slowing down, aided by strong
defence from goalkeeper Nicole Harris.
St George’s Kelly Platten had the tough task of
playing against A-grade best and fairest winner
Krystal Childs, who helped extend the lead to 18
goals by half-time.
Things went from bad to worse for St George’s
in the second half, as Lutheran’s Samantha Hick-
man and Samantha Hartley shot accurately to
extend the margin to 25 goals at the final change,
before finishing strongly in the last.
TRINITY began its season strongly with a
solid 34-10 win over Virginia, despite both
sides having new line-ups.
Trinity sprinted out of the blocks in the first
quarter, dominating play to take a 12-goal lead,
with wing attack Lucia Martin-Eastwood provid-
ing her goalies with plenty of scoring opportuni-
Virginia defenders Sarah MacKenzie and Lisa
Catanzariti tried hard to slow Trinity down in the
second quarter, but at the main break Trinity’s
lead had extended to 15.
The third quarter was a rather dour affair, be-
fore play opened up in the last.
Nicolle Saunders and Erin Docherty reaped the
rewards in goal for Trinity, capitalising on every
opportunity to put their side 24 goals up at the
KANGAS continued their undefeated
season in the Gawler & Districts Soft-
ball Association by demolishing All
Stars 17-3 on Saturday.
It was a strong batting performance by
Kangas, with Christie Nordin and Kareena
Donnan leading the charge by scoring a
home run each.
Kangas were also impressive in the field,
with Annie Unger’s solid game as pitcher
one of the highlights.
Two Wells inflicted a heavy 13-0 loss to
Giants, courtesy of a good all-round perfor-
mance with the bat and ball.
Sally Green pitched an impressive game,
while Two Wells’ batters made short work
of the Giants’ attack, with every player get-
ting on base throughout the match.
In division two, Bluejays triumphed over
Kangas in a close 6-3 tussle.
After leading in the first half, thanks to
solid batting performances from Rihanna
Havis and Ebony Peel, Kangas found it dif-
ficult to get bat on ball later in the match,
with Bluejays’ experience helping them over
In the other match, Two Wells held out a
determined Giants outfit to win 10-9.
After being 5-7 down heading into the
last inning, Two Wells dug deep to claw its
way over the line.
Franca Carbone and Krystal Doudle put
in fantastic batting performances for Two
Wells, while Giants’ Shanna Baker and Tori
Geraghty both played solid games.
