Third time’s the charm for Warwick netball champions

NETBALL: Grand final action came down to the wire in the final game of the season for Warwick Netball mixed teams on Monday night.

A and B grade competitions run for 12 regular rounds before one night of finals with the top six teams pitted against each other based on table standings.

The Condy team made the final of the B grade competition for the third year in a row.

The third finals appearance proved a charm for The Condy who claimed their first finals win.

Team Hot Shots made them work for the win, taking the final score right down to the buzzer as The Condy went on to a 22-21 victory.

The Condy captain Sara Skinnner said the Hot Shots came close to stealing the win.

"It really came down to the last three minutes," Skinner said.

"We were up at half-time but they came back hard.

"It would have been a great game to watch, but it was really nerve-racking on the court."

Skinner said the team would be back again next year and hoped to defend its newly-earned title of B grade champion.

In C grade, Gettin Plastered

had a more convincing win over minor-premiers Dark Vaders 20-12.

In the other games on the night team Klover beat Wii Unfit 13-6 and the Warriors won 31-16 over

team Ice Breakers in C grade.

B grade's Looney Tunes defeated Team Big Time 25-17 and Iconic had a nail-biting win over Hawks.
