Strathmerton took on Jerilderie in a tough, high-intensity game.

Strathmerton’s girls kept the intensity up for the whole four quarters and gave it their all. The talk and belief in one another is really starting to show and is fantastic.

The scores were close all game but the last quarter was where the players found their groove and put their foot down, with some excellent passages of play.

The defenders created numerous turnovers and the goalers didn’t let them down, converting everything to take a very well-deserved 20-goal win.

B-grade

Strathmerton lt Jerilderie 44-46

It was a game the players would like to forget, but definitely one they can learn from.

Strathmerton started off slowly and didn’t start to play its own game until the last quarter, when it was able to fight back and lessen the margin but unfortunately just missed out on coming away with the win.

All credit to Jerilderie, who was strong in the air and accurate in goals.

Strathmerton needs to regroup and get back to playing some team netball, trusting one another and backing each other up.

This was always going to be a tough match.

In the first quarter the girls struggled to find their flow and found themselves down by three at quarter-time.

A few changes were made and this set the girls up for a game-winning second quarter.

The standard of netball that was on display by these girls was amazing. The players took their foot off the pedal in the second half but walked away with a good win.

The talking and encouragement throughout the match was a credit to all girls.
