WAGIN Bulldogs easily defeated Olympics Royal 51-24 in netball on Saturday.
Although the team was not playing at its best, with prior injuries, new shooters, rearranged umpiring and kids galore, the game was set to be a hectic one.
However all the feedback that was given was well received and players took on board the changes and improved their game.
Best players went to Kelly Edwards and Jess Cliffton.
In under 16, Wagin Black took on Olympics Teal, resulting in another fantastic win by Wagin Black.
With an impressive first quarter, the team practised some new skills they learnt at training and were in complete control of the game.
Ayla Smith and Artamesia Barritt didn’t miss in scoring 30 goals in the first half and with Kalym Iles, Olivia Dorn and Jess Morgan feeding beautifully into the circle, they were hard to beat.
The girls dropped their game in the third quarter and their passing let them down, so there needs to be a focus on slowing down and leading into a space, in front of Wagin players.
The final quarter saw Iles shooting and Letita Holder in goal keeper – they stepped up to their new roles and should be proud of their efforts.
At the final whistle the score was 49-13 in Wagin’s favour.
Players of the day go to Ayla Smith and Artamesia Barrett and coaches’ choice goes to Letita Holder for her continued pressure in wing defence, her accurate passing and her solid work in goal keeper.
In under 13 division one it looks as though all the hard training payed off with the Redbacks securing their first win of the season with a final score of Redbacks 20 and Pingelly 12.
The game started off with Brianna Davidson and Emilia Mangalavite in defence making the opposition struggle to shoot goals.
Kalya Smith and Zena Scale did a fantastic job in leading the ball into the goal circle allowing the Andrew sisters, Jade and Amber, to shoot many magnificent goals.
Zoe Wright and Hena Smith also played great with their defence and attack.
Best players went to Jayde and Amber Andrews.
