On Sunday 19th July, the 13/U team 1 & 2 and the 15/U team 2 braved the coldest morning in Melbourne in the last 18 years to play the LYVNA tournament.
Under 13 - Team 1 - Coaches Report
The girls had a very successful day winning all 7 matches in the round robin and finishing on top of their pool ladder. They played Nepean in the Semi Finals, the top team from the other pool, and after a very tough and low scoring game they were able to advance straight through to the Grand Final. In the Grand Final they came up against Nepean again (who had won their Preliminary Final) and another tough battle ensured. The girls were down by a goal with only minutes to go and fought back to score the winning goal before the siren. Congratulations!
Under 13 - Team 2 - Coaches Report
After a slow start to the day, which saw the first round get moved to the end of the day due to frost on the courts, team 2 also had a slow start with 2 tough losses. However, they bounced back with 3 straight wins and finished the day 4th on their pool ladder. Overall a pretty solid day by the girls.
Under 15 - Team 2 - Coaches Report
The Under 15 team 2 (which comprised of half a team of fill ins) had a long day with 9 matches in the round robins. Playing in a combined Open/Reserve section, the girls came up against some tough competition. However, they didn't let that stop them and played some strong netball to finish the day with 4 wins, 4 losses, 1 draw and coming in 5th on the ladder, just missing out on finals.
