Barooga’s A-grade narrowly missed out on its second win, going down to Deniliquin by one goal on Saturday in the Murray Netball League.
Deniliquin lacked its top goaler in Bec White and struggled to find a replacement while the Hawks’ defence made full use of the opportunity, rebounding strongly and giving their own goalers plenty of chances.
They failed to get over the line in the end but can take a lot of confidence from playing one of the competition’s top sides, with Deniliquin having a clean sweep.
Cobram’s A-grade went down to a strong Finley outfit by 19 goals, with the under-17s enjoying a week off without a team to play.
C-reserve got within 11 goals of the Cats and all grades should have another tough match this week as they travel to Moama.
Strathmerton’s A-grade netballers took another victory on the weekend, defeating Berrigan 55-45 in the Picola and District Netball League’s north-west division.
The 10-goal win leaves it third on the table behind Tocumwal and Deniliquin.
B-grade recording a crushing 31-goal win against Berrigan, 56-25, but C-grade lost a tight encounter 35-38.
Yarroweyah’s B-grade side recorded a hard-fought win against Picola United, with a 37-33 result.
It was only the side’s third win of the season, but it saw it keep pace with the rest of the competition in the race for finals.
However the C-grade side lost a similarly close match, going down to United 30-37.
●In south-east division action, Katunga’s A-grade took a tight 48-43 against Dookie United.
