A Grade

Tungamah 41 def by Dookie 53

The girls were unable to get a win this week but the persistence of the team reduced the margin from the last game against Dookie.

Defensive pressure was awesome from Molly and Abbey. Great to see Daneka back again, her contribution was terrific.

B Grade

Tungamah 34 def Dookie 32.

A closely contested game that was evenly paced across all four quarters resulted in Tungamah victorious by two goals.

Great movement throughout the court, tough defence and determined shooting saw the girls hold the lead all game and take the win.

Daneka Robinson proved a very handy addition to the side and Tegan Maree Powell showed her impressive shooting skills.

Big thanks to Emma Walker, Ella Jones and Ella Costigan for benching for B today.

C Grade

Tungamah 21 def by Dookie 50.

Starting the game strong with Brinley Kruse stepping up to goal shooter from C Res to shoot with Remi McPherson saw the score 10 all after the first quarter.

Holding their ground and feeding nicely into the ring the mid-courters Hailey Saunders and Hannah Kavanagh flowed beautifully in the first half of the game, only going down by four goals.

Olivia Bakerzis in wing defence was the little energizer bunny who never stopped driving at the ball, making great positioning to bring the ball down the court with the help of Alysia Wilson, Elisha Dryden and Sarah Jones who never gave up.

They stayed positive and defended every opportunity in the ring to grab those rebounds.

Unfortunately the team’s fitness let them down in the second half and Dookie ran away with the win.

C Reserve

Tungamah 18 def by Dookie 38.

With a few injuries to C Reserve and one away on holidays, Liv and Erica stepped up from juniors and Sall came from C to join the team for the day.

The game started off well even though Dookie had the lead, no one put their heads down and there were still great things happening around the court.

Nice drives and strong defensive pressure abounded.

Going into the final quarter the girls got the message from Coach Zoe to have their hands up, keep running and keep up the talk.

Sally Eales dominated in defence; she talked all game, fought hard for the ball and encouraged everyone throughout the entire game.

Unfortunately in the end Dookie was just too good, a great effort girls.

Award: Byramine Homestead Sally Eales.

Tungamah 34 def Dookie 33.

The weather turned one on for the girls at Dookie.

They started off their game a bit shaky and the teams drawn at quarter time.

A few changes to the goalies and defenders and the play was flowing beautifully in the second.

Everyone was switched on and chased up anything that went past them.

Going into the third Tungamah was seven goals up and obviously felt too comfortable and their lead slipped and they were back to even at three quarter time.

Molly showed how versatile she was and showed off her footy skills big time in both shooter and defender.

Han made beautiful straight leads and was always an option even without her voice.

The big final quarter for the second week in a row, the pressure was on as the girls couldn't afford to lose and Tungamah prevailed once again and managed to come away with a one goal win.

Tungamah 66 def Dookie 7.

Beautiful day at Dookie for an early morning netball game.

Tungamah won the centre pass and never looked back. Intercepts were made constantly by the mid court, driving the ball down to the ring time and time again.

The shooters didn't miss many and the score reflected this. Defence worked tirelessly and with their talking and causing turnovers, they were able to keep Dookie's score to a minimum.

Credit must be given to Dookie too, as their girls fought hard all game. Awesome

effort everyone, a great game for spectators to watch.

Awards: Ella Jones Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort,

What a successful night at the ball at ClubMulwala on Saturday night, thanks to all for coming.

Thoughts are with the family of former Tungamah League President Ray Henderson - a Shepp East legend and friend to many at Tungamah.
