Round 10 GNC report

GNC 2013 dressRound 10 wasn’t the finest for Greensborough Netball Club.

A handful of narrow losses, 2 players carted off to hospital and a convincing win, certainly covered the extremes.

Team#1 played Fitzroy Stars A with both teams being very accurate and the lead changing 9 times. Very competitive for the whole game, Team#1 just missed out in the end by 5 goals.

Team#2 took the opportunity to stay in the top 4 with a solid performance against Laurimar Power. With tremendous pressure everywhere, top quality semi-circle defence and very good shooting accuracy, Team#2 kept the game well under control for a brilliant 14-goal win. Go Boro !!!

Team#3 had a tough task against undefeated top side St Mary’s A. Very competitive initially, Team#3 worked hard to recover the ball with intercepts and rebounds, but just couldn’t match the shooting power of the opposition to lose by 27 goals.

Team#4 was determined and accurate until Epping Blue stole the momentum for a few brief minutes in the third quarter. The margin couldn’t be reduced and Team#4 finished with a 7 goal loss.

Team#5 played Watsonia D in an extremely close game with Boro player Rachael Wright collapsing in the third quarter. These 2 top 4 teams fought it out with the margin never more than 4 goals. The lead changed only twice but the wrong way in the end for Team#5 to lose by just one goal.

Team#6 took on Whittlesea C for a chance to get close to the top 4. A good effort by Team#6 in a shortened game due to a serious injury to a Boro player Tamara Logan which made it difficult to develop momentum. A last quarter resurgence by Team#6 to get within 2 goals couldn’t be maintained and ended in a 6 goal loss.
