NETBALL: After a win and loss on day three of the Confraternity Carnival, Assumption netball coach Anna Hardy is confident heading into finals tomorrow.

Assumption went down by one point to St Michael's College from Merrimac today, with the final margin 16 to 17.

They then scored a 23 to 16 point win against Marist College from Emerald.

Hardy said the squad was at the top of division six, giving them a good head start.

"All the teams are fairy evenly matched, there's no such thing as an easy game here," she said.

Hardy said the Assumption team was playing top netball.

"You just can't make an error because you don't have time to get it back," she said.

"They've learnt they have to play mistake-free netball."

On day one of the carnival Assumption put up a tough battle but went down to St Thomas More College 12 to 14, Xavier Catholic College 14 to 17 and Ryan Catholic College 17 to 11.

On day two they racked up two wins, defeating St Mary's College from Ipswich 16 to 9 and Mercy College from Mackay 23 to 16.

 

The Assumption College squad is one of 64 netball teams competing for the Confraternity Shield in Bundaberg this week.

The netball quarter, semi and grand finals will take place over the next two days.
