A2 – Hobitz v Vicis
Hobitz got out of the blocks fast to compile an outstanding win against Vicis in the ninth round of the 2022 Mount Gambier Netball Association A2 season.
Sari Mutton was on top of her game shooting 12 goals, with Sierra Young also shooting seven to get Hobitz off to a flier.
The rain of goals did not stop there for the unstoppable Hobitz as they piled on 14 goals to Vicis four in the second term.
Vicis goal shooter Leanne Vorwerk fought hard making the most of the opportunities presented to her under the ring.
Vicis shooters Vorwerk and Emily Harrop swapped positions at the main break while captain Jodie Devereux moved down back, but these moves did little to the bigger picture.
Hobitz continued to fly in the third, outscoring its rivals by 10 goals across another dominant passage of play with Young the star.
Co-captains Mutton and Bec Wallace also played big roles in their respective positions of goal shooter and wing defence.
Hobitz showed no signs of fatigue as it ran out winners 59-17.
The victors remained dominant until the final whistle to be comfortable winners.
Vicis were not able to match the might of Hobitz with their fast play and superior goal shooting in the wintery conditions.
Harrap and Vorwerk battled hard for Vicis along with Madalyn Wilkinson while Kellie Wallace came up from goal keeper to goal shooter in the last for Hobitz and managed seven goals.
It was great to see Hobitz being versatile around the court on a wet day, while Vicis will regroup and move on to the next match.
The action continues tomorrow night at Olympic Park where Intruders meet Vicis and Zodiacs Gold take on Hobitz, while Zodiacs Blue face off with Saints.
U13 – Amazons v Saints
The juniors were also busy braving the cold on Saturday morning and Saints adapted best in their Under 13A clash with Amazons.
Saints was on the money straight away putting nine goals on the board to Amazons’ two who struggled to play against the pressure applied by the opponents.
Mia Forrest was the star shooting seven goals in the opening term, enjoying good delivery from Esther Lacey.
Scoring slowed slightly in the second term, but Saints maintained control of the game.
Forrest and Annalie Peucker evenly shared the goals, while Amazons could only muster one clean shot from Isabelle Green.
Third and fourth quarters were good for the Saints scoring 21 goals to Amazons six goals to improve on the first half.
Forrest remained in her goal shooter role up until three quarter time and then moved to goal attack in the last while Peucker scored two goals in the first and three in the second before switching to wing defence in the third.
She then moved back to goal attack in the last and scored another two goals for the Saints.
In the second term Jemima Pattridge moved from wing defence in to goal attack and made three goals count for Saints.
It was not a good day for Amazons but they battled hard in the game with the majority of the goals coming in the last half thanks to Green and Skye McGregor.
Saint had some good moves on the court and made the most of the conditions with team work and understanding each other’s game style, while Amazons did an amazing job with what they had.
The Under 13A players will be back in action tonight for another round, this time under lights.
Zodiacs will face Amazons, while Intruders face Saints and both matches take place at 7.15pm.
