Eagles unable to match Mundulla intensity

It was a flat game for the Eagles as they faced Mundulla on Saturday in KNT netball action.

Starting well with some excellent plays, Penola managed to stay in the game for the first quarter.

In the second and third quarters Mundulla’s impressive defence and accurate finishes had them run away with a significant lead on the Eagles.

While Penola kept at it, getting hands to balls and finding space to transition the ball, they were unable to find the consistency and confidence they needed to pull through.

While Penola did lift their game in the last quarter it was not enough to match the undefeated Mundulla this time around.

Hannah Klemm and Gorgia Robbie were Penola’s best players in the 30-67 loss.

The A Reserve match featured top of the ladder Penola up against third placed Mundulla.

Penola came out firing to have a good lead, but Mundulla crept back in in the second half of the first quarter.

A strong second quarter saw Penola gain confidence and take a good lead into half time.

Ellise Berkin played her best game this season with some really tight and clean defence in WD – causing at least five turnovers for the game.

The Eagle pushed ahead to take the game by 17 goals.

Ellise Berkin and April Possingham were best on court for Penola in the 63-46 win.
