In perfect conditions for netball that would test the fitness of both teams, Koonibba were consistently strong in defence with Miller, Carr and Colbung options interchanging. Ceduna Blues were a credit to themselves with accurate shooting after they settled into the game. Both teams interchanged regularly to keep fresh legs in centre. Ceduna Blues goalies worked well together with combinations of Woods, Bennett and Blums under intense pressure. Koonibba goalies were strong onto the ball which saw them continue to hold their lead. By half time Koonibba had drawn away to a 24 to 13 goal lead. The third quarter took its toll on the fitness of both teams and the weather was the winner. But Ceduna Blues capitalised on the heat which started having an impact on the Koonibba team. Mistakes crept into the Koonibba team in the last quarter but their first half lead set them up and enabled them to hold on for a ten goal lead at full time.

B Grade:Thevenard (43) defeated Western United (33)

In warm conditions Thevenard came out strong and was the first side to settle leading into the first break with a 1 goal advantage. Both sides were very even with similar defensive pressure creating turn overs however neither team could capitalise. Thevenard continued their 1 goal advantage into half time. During the half time break Western United and Thevenard both made a few changes, Western United came out of the break looking more composed and attacking with purpose, however a few bad passes from Westies went astray and Thevenard took full advantage. GS Lahn was such a strong focus for Thevenard with their mid courters feeding her well. Thevenard went into the 3/4 break up by 7.

Thevenard came into the last term determined to win. Westies defenders tried as hard as they could the entire game however Lahn was to strong out rebounding all in the goal circle, giving Thevenard many opportunities at goals. Thevenard continued to put their foot down in fourth term running away with the win by 10. Congratulations Thevenard all the best for the prelim

Both teams settled quickly and the quickly and the quarter was goal for goal as both teams fought hard, Western United lead by 1 at the first quarter. Tight defence by Western United made the Thevenard goalies work hard, but Jo Hillas and Dayna Halls kept fighting and didn’t get rattled to shoot consistently great goals. Thevenard’s strong defence pushed Western United goalies to the edge of the ring to shoot, but this didn’t faze Lee Dunn as she shot some great long range goals, Emily Kelsh shot equally as well. The tight and close game continued as both teams felt the pressure of goal for goal scoring. By the end of the third quarter Western United wee two up.

D Grade:Thevenard (52) defeated Koonibba (14)

With the Ice Age gone, the spray tans patchy and after some interesting one on one warm up poses by the Thevenard coach and her girls, all the players went out strong. First quarter saw Koonibba’s goal keeper come off the court with injury, and with no reserve, it was a major disadvantage to their team. Second quarter was time for Thevenard centre to take to the court – literally face first on the ground and injuring her wrist – contrary to her promise to the coach to “tuck and roll”! The last half was a lot of hot potato play with many of the girls playing what looked like air hand ball. Koonibba’s injured player came back on to finish well in goal shooter, with good defence by their younger players. Thevenard proved to be stronger (after all their warm up poses), winning the game.
