Warwick 3 dominates play on the weekend

WARWICK 3 won its four games in the second round of Darling Downs Inter-district action at Laidley on Sunday.

The team of girls in the 15/16 years age group is coached by Helena Fraser.

Fraser said the girls had a dominant day with wins against Toowoomba 1, Goondiwindi 3, Chinchilla 1 and Lockyer 3.

"All wins were quite convincing with a highlight being the team's strong defence along the length of the court which created many intercepts," she said.

"The strong defence created errors by their opposition, which enabled them to turn the ball over time and again."

The Warwick 14 years team, which is coached by Leah Murphy and Jess O'Brien, had three wins out of four games.

Their only loss was by one goal to Goondiwindi 3.

Warwick 7 coach Taylah Brackin said all the girls in her team had stepped up this season and were working well together as a great defensive team.

"We trialled a few different combinations on the court which worked to our advantage and finished with two wins and two losses," Brackin said.

The best performance was against the previously unbeaten Toowoomba 5.

"Several times throughout the game we were ahead by one or two. However, we lost by one goal. Overall, it was a great day and the girls played with great team spirit."

Warwick 8 had one win, one draw and two losses on the day.

Coach Kerri Shooter is being assisted this season by assistants Jess Somes and Abbey Harrison.

"All the girls played extremely well," Shooter said.

In the senior competition, Warwick 2, the 16 years representative side, beat Warwick 1 18-4.

Warwick 2 had only six players available for inter-district and were boosted by the inclusion of assistant coach and Queensland under-age representative Stephanie O'Brien.

The assistant coach played goal attack in each game and was later joined by her sister Jessica who filled in after Tiffany Cullen suffered an ankle injury.

Other wins were against Downlands 1 23-21, Lockyer 2 25-5 and Downlands 2 24-5.

Sarah Kane, Sophie Grayson and Emma Siebenhausen were outstanding in centre court for Warwick 2.

Warwick 1 recorded wins against Highfields and Downlands on Sunday.

Abbey Harrison and Jess Somes were the best for Warwick 1 with Codie Brackin improving in the shooting circle. (Reports from coaches)
