Home' The Bunyip : June 4th 2014 Contents XAVIER made light work of
Trinity in the Gawler & Dis-
trict Netball Association on
the weekend, winning a one-
sided affair by 34 goals.
Xavier set the tone for its victory
early, capitalising on missed Trin-
ity goals and streaking away to a
seven-goal quarter-time buffer.
Trinity worked hard in the sec-
ond quarter and settled into the
match, with defenders Alyssia
Rickard-Bennett and Bethany
Guerin giving their all to keep
their side in the game.
The resistance was short-lived,
however, and an unchanged
Xavier line-up continued to forge
ahead in the second half.
Sara Farnham starred for Xavi-
er in the mid-court, while Alex
Vickers and Cassie Wing were ex-
ceptional in goals for the victors,
but, on the whole, a team effort
was the catalyst for the win.
Lutheran finished all over the top
of Gumnuts in a tightly contested
match, winning by eight goals.
Quick ball movement was the
order of the day, with play transfer-
ring quickly from one end to an-
Gumnuts settled quickly, with
their attack line of Charmaine
Wood and Shelley Tester working
well together, and went into the
first break with a two-goal lead.
Both teams continued to work
hard in the wet conditions but nei-
ther could break the shackles, with
Gumnuts a goal up at the main
Krystal Childs and Nicole Harris
led the way with brilliant defensive
pressure for Lutheran in the third
term and helped their side take a
one-goal lead into the final change.
It was Lutheran which finished
the strongest in the last quarter,
with its mid-court on top as Gum-
nuts ran out of steam.
Black wins derby
St George's Black proved too
strong for rivals St George's White
in the final match of the round,
winning by six goals in wet condi-
Both teams began well, with
White strong in the mid-court and
attacking with purpose.
Melissa Heerebout played a tight
defensive role for White, starting
in wing defence before moving to
goalkeeper, and led her team to a
one-goal half-time lead.
Goal-shooter Amanda Read was
impressive for Black and was well
supported by Alyssa Wilson, but
White was three in front heading
into the final quarter.
It was all St George's Black in the
finish as it made the most of its op-
portunities with accurate shooting
to run away with the match.
