Go Boro. 2015 Premiers!
Greensborough team two, finished second on the ladder after the 2014 home and away season to Northcote Park. Both teams met in the 2014 NNL Section Two Grand Final, last Friday night at Parade College.
The Boro girls took the court in the opening quarter with steely determination. The midcourt, lead by Sammy, Jess and Karina kept firing the ball into the Boro shooters and starting GS Megan wasn’t missing. The first quarter was dominated by the boro, with all seven players on court pulling together to keep the ball in boro’s possession. Quarter time saw Boro leading Northcote Park 8-4. Coach, Sharon Ashworth made the change to rest the players, putting on Super Chan into GS, and Olivia into the midcourt. The start of the second quarter was tight and Northcote came back to within a goal, but the girls quickly snuffed out the Northcote momentum and came back with some super shots, and some fantastic intercepts from Team Captain Sharna in GK, and Francesca in GD and at halftime the girls were up 14-11.
The halftime break was disrupted by three Bundoora Football Players showing up in netball dresses and got a laugh from the crowd.
The third quarter saw the return of Megan to GS and the continuation of GA Issy shooting long bomb goals at whim. A quick succession of goals saw the Boro increase the lead to six goals, 23-17. The last quarter saw Super Chan return to GS and fire off some quick goals, with the boro never giving away a lead, however the Northcote Park girls got some late goals in. The game ended with Boro winning their very first Premiership, final score 29-25.
Congratulations to all our Section Two players and coach Sharon Ashworth. They had a fantastic season, and a good battle with Northcote Park all year.
