Experience triumphs over youth
THERE were more smiles from the players than in most games as the oldies, Warwick 2, beat the youngies, Warwick 1, in the second last round of the Darling Downs Inter-district Netball Carnival at Barnes Park yesterday.
Warwick 2 won its four open games on the day and now has six wins from seven games this season.
Yesterday, the Warwick 2 side beat Downlands, Lockyer 1, Laidley 1 and finished with a 17-7 victory against Warwick 1.
Warwick 2 player Amanda Creed said most of the team’s games were close.
“Inter-district netball is just a good day out,” Creed said.
For many years, Dalby was the traditional rival for Warwick but Dalby is not fielding an open team this season.
“There are some strong school teams from Downlands and Glennie now,” Creed said.
“Looking at the other teams, there are a lot more changes compared to other years.”
Warwick fielded 10 teams yesterday and went through the day with an unbeaten record in five grades.
Each side won its four or five games on the day.
The Warwick 4 (15 years state), Warwick 9 (12 years challenge), Warwick 7 (13 years), Warwick 6 (14 years) and the Warwick 2 open teams won all their games.
