Last Friday night at Parade College, Greensborough 3 took on Whittlesea 3 in the section four preliminary final and won 34-28 in a tightly contested game.
Boro finished second on the ladder after the completion of the 2015 regular season and Whittlesea finished fourth. The first round of finals saw Boro take on first placed Lalor who proved to be too strong and won the game 34-17. Whittlesea took on third placed Epping and had a strong win, 40 to 25.
This coming Friday night at Parade College, Greensborough 3 takes on Lalor in the Grand Final, our line up:
The Greensborough Division one netball team this year had a new coach as well as five new players. The first half of the season was really focused on getting to know each other and how we play, as well as our strengths and weaknesses on court. We have won five games and lost eight for the season. Our most recent win however, was 53-38 against Eltham! With a win this coming Friday against Fitzroy Stars, we are still in with a chance to make finals. Our team has really clicked lately so this would seem a fitting reward for all the hard work. Go Boro!!!
From the Captain, Sarah VN
From the Preso, Nicole Doherty.
SUPPORTERS WE NEED!!! Will be great to see some Greensy Boys come down on a Friday Night to help support the girls now that we are getting closer to finals!

Social wise, the GFNC have Mr Boro coming up on the 24th May with the Boro netballers booking out two tables already. If anyone else wants to get on board, please let the Netball Committee Members know ASAP as seats are limited and Mr Boro is always a great night!
Round 3 was a great improvement with three wins and two draws from the five matches played at RMIT Bundoora and Parade College on Friday 2nd May.
The Boro netball club’s focus over the next few weeks is to continue to build and work together in our teams and as a club as a whole and our results from last round have proved us to be on this path. To quote the NNL from an article published in 2012, ‘cream always rises to the top’, and that is our motto for this season.
Thanks to the Netball girls who attended the Greensborough Football Netball Club’s Ladies Day last Saturday. The day had a great turnout and was enjoyed by all. The Club has some exciting social events coming up with Mr Boro, the Annual Boro Ball and LinenHouse Day so check our website for dates and details.

Well it’s crunch time now for Boro with Team#5 marching on into the Section 6 Grand Final tonight at 8pm, Parade College v Fitzroy Stars.
Team 5 made their way into this weeks grand final with a nervous start in the Preliminary Final against Thomastown B produced many ball handling errors and missed shots. Team 5 trailed by 3 goals during the first quarter, but all players remained focused, lifted their intensity and worked the ball forward cleanly for the rest of the game to eventually win by 12 goals.
Team 2 sadly bowed out of contention after their valiant effort against quality opposition Whittlesea A in the Section 2 Preliminary Final last Friday night.
Team 2 stayed within a few goals of Whittlesea A up to 3 quarter time, but having thrown everything into it, players were spent in the last quarter and the game drifted out to an 8 goal loss.
GNC Team 2 had a sensational season and really put up a hard fight every round and established themselves as one of the division two top teams to beat.
Last weeks MVP’s were Team 5’s Lisa Crockett and Team 2’s Kristy Crockett. Congratulations to both!
Want to see the action? Come down to Parade College at 8pm tonight to see Team 5 battle it out for the ultimate holy grail.
The Greensborough Netball Club has 2 teams in the first round of finals.
Team#2 in the Section 2 1st Semi-Final against North Heidelberg B produced a huge 14 goal turnaround from the previous loss, with defensive pressure, offer timing & shooting accuracy greatly improved. These efforts took the team out to a 7 goal lead by halftime and stifled a last ditched effort by North Heidelberg in the final minutes for a well-constructed team effort and a brilliant 5 goal win.
Team#5 in Section 6 2nd Semi-Final against Fitzroy Stars C was slow to react to Fitzroy’s general attack in the first half. Team#5 trailed by as much as 8 goals before getting back to basics and attempting a come back. With a much cleaner last quarter and fewer turnovers, Team#5 closed to within 3 goals but couldn’t sustain the momentum to lose by 5 goals. There’s plenty of scope for improvement and Team#5 will be refocused for the next game.
Team#2 – Alison Galloway and Stephanie Hogan
Team#5 – Krystal O’Sullivan
Both teams now play in Preliminary Finals this Friday night. Games:
