ROC 28 lost to Doveton 61
Good effort by the girls to show they have made improvements since the last time the teams met closing the margin by 10 goals. There is still a lot of improvement in this group but it is going to take persistence and hard work to become a competitive team in this competition. Look forward to the challenge that is Beaconsfield and hope we can again show our improvement.

Hard fought game in tough weather conditions. Solid defensive effort with some fantastic attacking plays; great 3rd atr, but unfortunately consistency couldn’t be maintained and Doveton came out with a narrow but deserved win.

Wind, rain and cold are never ideal conditions for netball, but that wasn’t going to stop C Grade this week as they continue their winning run. An even first quarter allowed players to adjust to the conditions and then take control of the game. Our usual game plan was hindered by a slippery court, but the girls adapted well, steadied and took the safe path to goal. Everyone is working hard defensively to create turnovers and it is impressive to see the team gel more each week. Missing players due to injury and holidays, we thank Katelyn Vincent for stepping on court and playing a part and Lauren Ward for staying wrapped in the blanket ‘just in case!’.

We were fortunate to be playing indoor on a a cold winters day against Doveton. Everyone put In a. great effort to transfer training skills to game day and accommodate new playing positions. We achieved our goal of winning the third quarter and were ahead all day except for the last quarter when we dropped our bundle and let Doveton back into the game, only winning by 2 goals.

In pretty ordinary conditions, raining and windy most of the game the girls played well; and had another convincing victory. Looking forward to the break this week and we will prepare ourselves to take on Beacy. Good games played by Ash Barnett & Sam Neil, finally it was good to have back Jamie Armstrong who returned after injury.

A slow start to the U/15 Red girls on Saturday against Doveton. However with half the team having played in a 4 day tournament in the preceeding days we knew it was going to test our mentality and strength as a team. Sure enough the girls came out firing in the last 3 quarters to deekp doveton to a minimal 1 gals and scoring 30 of our own. Congratulations girls, youre improving each and every week – watch out Beacy we’re ready this time! GO ROCettes!!!

It was the perfect day to play indoors against Doveton and the girls made the most of avoiding the elements. Sharp shooting from Tessa and Em C along with tight defence from Taylah and Courtney made it tough for the opposition to convert. Midcourters Bianca, Em W and Steph kept running all game, providing opportunity for the goalers. With a couple of players missing, it was a good four quarter performance by the team which resulted in another strong win. Thank you to Molly and Kate for keeping the bench warm!

We were always going to be up against it this week, a stronger Doveton than we played last time, three players unavailable and going into the game with a straight seven. As we were short this week we borrowed Zoe from the White team, she was super excited to play with us. Our first quarter was pretty competitive, although we lost the quarter i thought we still did very well. The second quarter was not what i expected, losing it by 11 goals. A few changes in the third quarter and only lost the 3rd by 1, we finished with a strong last quarter and won the last by 1 but the damage was already done. A good game by all considering the circumstances with players forced to be played out of position. Special thanks to Dotti for giving us Zoe for the game and of course big thanks to Zoe. Zoe played very strong in defence all game picking up many intercepts and taking out the award for this week.

Great improvement from our first match against Doveton. Defence played great, shooters didn’t miss much. We were really lucky to be inside on a rainy day.
