SENIORS

The A grade game against North Wagga was a close encounter with the score remaining even for the majority of the game.

Unfortunately, the Saints were able to nudge away in the final quarter. The umpires chose Brianna Clark as the best for Coly while the Brolga award for player’s player went to Maddie Mannes for a consistent game in wing attack.

A Reserve were once again unlucky to be narrowly defeated 54-47 in their game. All members put in a big effort with the umpires awarding Abbey Young as their best while Emma Dunbar took out the player’s player award.

The B grade side was outplayed by an efficient Saints side that had a high goal-scoring rate throughout. Charlotte Morton took home the Coly Club voucher for umpire’s choice with the Brolga Award going to Emma Shields for her efforts through the mid court.

The C grade girls found Saturday’s game a challenge but they put it their best regardless. Tess Mader put in a great effort and was awarded as Coly’s best with Ella Painting being voted player’s player.

JUNIORS

The Junior netball was played indoors in the Narrandera Stadium on Friday night which always creates an air of excitement for the girls.

The under 15s needed all the energy they could muster having to play two games. The first was a close one against a strong Narrandera Blue side.

Coly led during the first half but couldn’t hold on as Blue won 23-18 but the side bounced back to beat Narrandera Gold 32-5 an hour later. The club beanies went to Grace Tooth for a consistent game at shooter and Cilla Bellato who had a great game in attack.

Even though the under 13s were easily defeated, they were able to slow down the scoring rate of their opponents as the game progressed. Izabelle Burnett was awarded for her effective positioning and shooting.

The under 11s had a tough game against a very strong Eagles side and to their credit never gave up. Alana Jones received the beanie for improvement in defence.
