Flying high: B Grade Hopper star Rebekah Jones goes up for the ball.

Full stretch. Miranda Bond does her best to catch the wide ball.

A-grade

Mathoura 35 d

Yarroweyah 31

The Hoppers’ A-grade side battled bravely but just went down to Mathoura.

It was always going to be tough with a few players away as well as main shooter Kelly Laffan having to sacrifice her playing time to umpire the game, which was a great effort.

Miranda Bond stepped up to the shooting role with Danielle Beekman by her side. The two played very well together and created great space in the ring.

Once again the Hoppers’ defence was stingy with Bek Jones, Sarah Skehan and Nic Startari all creating serious pressure over the ball and getting multiple turnovers.

Kirrily Jones also showed her skill in the midcourt, creating huge pressure and keeping her player out of the game.

All in all it was a great team effort by the Hoppers as they edge closer to that win they have been craving.

Mug award went to Kirrily Jones.

Club award went to Miranda Bond.

B-grade

Yarroweyah 32 drew Mathoura 32

The B-grade girls came away with a 32-all draw on Saturday.

The team worked really hard all day. The defence was outstanding and was helped by the returning Gen Taylor, who really showed her talent in wing defence, creating a lot of pressure and getting multiple intercepts.

Bek Jones had another amazing game and kept the shooters on their toes, making them work that bit harder all day.

The Hoppers’ attacking end had great leads down the court with great passing and footwork in the ring a standout feature on the day.

Mug award went to Gen Taylor.

Club award went to Bek Jones.
