Round 18 GNC report

Team 2Final round of the season and Boro has Team#2 and Team#5 in the finals!

Team#1 put in a tremendous first half to always be within a few goals of major favourite Diamond Creek Red. With no chance of making the finals, Team#1 had a little fun in the second half to see the season out. A great season by the girls which included 5 losses of just 4 goals or less, and finishing 6th. So competitive!

In a pre-view of the 1st semi-final, Team#2 struggled against Whittlesea A with many uncharacteristic bad passes under pressure. Drive forward evaporated after quarter time and disaster struck in the 3rd quarter with Alana suffering a season ending injury. The girls managed to hold it together to come back for a 9 goal loss and will dig deep for the finals re-match. We all wish Alana a speedy recovery for 2014.

Steph flyTeam#3 showed that they are more than capable in Section 3 by defeating 4th placed South Morang Gold in a solid workout. A close encounter, with Team#3 never behind and fighting off South Morang who drew level early in the last quarter to take the win by 5 goals. Go Boro !!! A fantastic season by the girls in Team#3 finishing 5th and several very narrow losses just keeping them out of the finals.

Team 4Team #4 had a bye but also finished 5th on the ladder after some big wins and narrow losses. Nice job girls, unlucky.

Team#5 put their stamp on the competition to finish in 2nd position with a resounding win over Reservoir. After a very slow start, Team#5 slammed on 10 goals to nil in the second quarter to set up a 16 goal win. Finals here we come! Go Boro !!!

Team#6 came up against strong finals contender Watsonia D who weren’t about to muck around. A few too many turnovers didn’t allow Team#6 to get into the game. After joining the comp late so that all Boro players would get solid court time, Team#6 played in many close games with challenging line up changes. Well done girls in a shortened and difficult season.
