The Junior Blues played the Junior Crows at Leeton on Saturday in very wet and cold conditions.
The under 15s played two games and appeared uncomfortable in the wet, being unable to play their normal game. The girls were defeated 36-21 in the first game by a well organised and consistent Crows side. After a very slow start in the second game the Crows had a comfortable lead, however after a firm discussion at half-time the girls composed themselves, minimised their unforced errors to win the second half. Unfortunately this was not enough as they lost 26-16. Danielle Mannes tried hard throughout the first match and was awarded the canteen voucher while Abbey Young was voted player’s player by her teammates for her efforts in the second match. Youngster Sally Foster was given some time on the court for the 15s proving to be very effective in defence.
The under 13s came up against a very skilful Leeton side, losing their game 20-6. The girls worked hard all game, trying to keep in touch with their opposition but were outplayed all over the court. Sally Foster worked tirelessly, intercepting the ball on many occasions. Grace Tooth was given the weekly award for her effort at both ends of the court.
The under 11’s winning streak came to an end when they were defeated 14-2 by a well drilled Leeton side. Charlotte Young had an outstanding game in defence, taking numerous intercepts throughout the game. Georgia Stewart played with determination and was awarded the canteen award.
