Under 17s

Mulwala 39 defeated Katandra 17

Great game by the Under 17s side. Coming off a loss last week the girls had something to prove.

A full team effort put the Lions in front from the beginning with great leads and defensive pressure down the mid court.

Accurate shooting kept the girls ahead with a steady lead and beautiful driving on the ring kept Katandra defenders busy.

The defense was second to none, with a number of interceptions throughout the entire game.

Very excited for the season ahead.

Under 13s 

Mulwala 34 defeated Katandra 2

What a great game the Under 13s had this week. They started the game strong and kept it up the entire game.

The shooters in Brigitte, Jess and Myley were on fire. The movement in the ring was fantastic and they were fed the ball well.

At the other end of the court, Kaleisha, Milla and Lily applied great defensive pressure making it hard for Katandra to score.

Kaleisha put on an amazing display reading the play well and taking intercepts like a superstar.

Overall a great game to watch and nice for the girls to get their first win. 

Awards: Travel and Cruise: Kaleisha Pell, Lake Mulwala Bakery – Myley McGlynn, MFNC Dinner Voucher - Leni Miller.

Under 11s

Mulwala 16 defeated Katandra 2

The game began with great defensive pressure applied all over the court.

Maisee and Ruby teamed up in goals and secured a great lead for the little Lions.

Katandra fought hard but with Jemma, Emily and Charli intercepting many balls, Katandra struggled to get many shooting opportunities.

Lara fed the goalies well and Maddi moved well around the ring.

Even switching goalies and defenders at half time, the little Lions didn’t miss a beat, proving how versatile they are.

A very comfortable win for the girls.
