Rare scoreless quarter in netball

NETBALL: No one can say a game of netball does not offer variety.

Tradie Ladies played Fierce Fillies in a game that offered the near, wide and varied options.

The opening quarter was a closely contested and high-scoring affair, with Tradie Ladies taking a slight advantage 13–11.

The umpire’s whistle started the first centre pass for the second quarter, with no other whistles to follow; 12 minutes of play and not a goal scored.

Do we put that down to great game play and defence or the joy of a social fixture?

Third quarter was 10-all before the young legs of Fierce Fillies (14yrs (2) rep team) gave them the final quarter 10–7 and the game win 31–30.

Good natured rivalry between representative teams is always a good thing.

The stakes are high in club netball but these teams support each other at carnivals.

Last week’s game between High Flyers (15 yrs) and Babes (14 yrs) representative teams displayed a see-sawing game with only a strong opening quarter to High Flyers confirming a winner.

High Flyers dominated the first quarter 12-3, however Babes in their first year of senior fixtures were not to be taken lightly and showed true grit and skill by putting their name to the second and fourth quarters to have the game finish 27-21 in favour of High Flyers.– Linda Bunch
