TORRENTIAL rain saw most netball games in the UNE competition called off, but St Albert’s A-grade reserve side sought refuge in SportUNE’s indoor courts to deliver Duval College a 44-22 thrashing.
St Albert’s Laura Weatherspoon said the college’s reserve grade side dominated play from the outset.
“Albie’s were really strong in attack and this saw them take over the game,” she said.
“We won every one of our centre passes and from that we scored plenty of goals.”
Albie’s were able to move the ball quickly into the hands of their shooters, Sarah Bentley and Brittany Mackenzie,” Weatherspoon said.
“The ball moved quickly, but Bentley and Mackenzie were shooting with such accuracy that we could really afford to take control of the pace of the game.
The Albie’s reserve grade side has only lost one game this season and Saturday’s game proved their dominance in the competition.
“The girls have really been focusing on their defence in training, and by the end of the game we were winning plenty of Duval’s centre passes,” Weatherspoon said.
“Hopefully next week we will have better weather and we will see more of the Albie’s netball teams meet the same level of success in their games.”
