Pipped in extra time

THE shooting of Dimity Brackin was exceptional as Assumption College finished runner-up in division 2 of the Vicki Wilson Cup in junior school netball last weekend in Toowoomba.

Coach Kiara Wilson said the performance by Assumption was the best in five years.

"The girls just showed so much respect for the game," Wilson said.

"If there was an unfair call, they held their heads high and didn't worry about it.

"They showed great sportsmanship and a position attitude to the other players."

Wilson was high in praise of the play of each team member but said the shooting accuracy of Brackin, one of the youngest two players in the side, was exceptional.

Assumption beat two Pittsworth High teams, Centenary Heights High, Wilsonton High, St George High and Concordia College to qualify for the final.

The score in the final against Fairholme was 21-all, which put the match into extra time.

Fairholme ran out winners 28-25 after 10 minutes of extra time.

All Assumption players who were successful in Toowoomba are involved in the selection process for Warwick representative teams for 2012.

Nominations close on Wednesday for the summer social mixed netball competition at WIRAC.
