Close mixed netball final
THE three McVeigh siblings were part of the Hawks team which won a titanic struggle in the B-grade grand final in Warwick mixed netball.
Natalie, Ellie and Fraser McVeigh were in the winning team which beat Condy 30-28.
The score was 28-all at fulltime after Hawks scored with five seconds remaining to tie.
Hawks then scored two goals in the first 90 seconds of extra time to win narrowly.
The Condy team was led by Rachel Gaske who took on the captaincy for a new team to mixed netball.
The majority of the team work for the Condamine Sports Club.
"Hawks were very good in defence and Hayden McNicol was amazing when shifted to shooter when his team was trailing," Condy player Leah Murphy said.
"Emma Siebenhausen and Hayley Millard were strong in centre court; we missed the third man in our team who was out on the night."
Nathan Bell shot well and Gaske was an inspiration in defence.
In C-grade, Dream Team led at each break to beat Dream Killers 26-19.
Dream Killers won the third quarter 10-4 but it was not enough.
