Round 12 – Pyramid Hill v Marong

With the wind howling and the grey clouds threatening (and they only
ever threaten these days!) we all knew that scoring today would be
difficult and the games were not going to be pretty to watch.
Conditions aside we were able to walk away with the wins and for the
first time in a long time we managed to win every game of the day
including the netball.  Now that’s a feeling we could easily get used
to and a great incentive for the coming weeks!

Under 18’s

A massive game for the young pups beckoned against a quality Marong
outfit. In horrendous conditions the first quarter was very scrappy
but the boys pressure and defence held firm against the breeze. Led by
Brad Moon, the backline held up superbly and we led by 2 goals at
quarter time, keeping the Panthers scoreless. The conditions did not
improve throughout the game but the boys were able to hold the
momentum for majority of the game. In a low scoring, contested battle
we led 4.2 to 1.5 at the final change. We kicked the first goal of the
last term to increase the lead beyond 20 points but Marong hit back
kicking 2 quick goals. The last five minutes saw a few nerve-racking
moments but the lads held on for a hard-fought victory.

Final Scores: Pyramid Hill 5.3.33 defeated Marong 3.5.23
Goals: R. Blake 2, A. Cunningham 1, J. Sawyer 1, M. Stephens 1.

The last month of footy hasn’t been the best for the Reserves and another challenge awaited them coming up against Marong, who were 2nd
on the ladder.
The windy conditions proved challenging for both sides and the game
was played majority on the far wing, wasn’t a pretty game of footy but
the boys put together a 4 quarter effort to win by 36 points.
Better players were Dylan “Bring back the mullet” Tonkin who was a
standout in the middle, Mitch “love the misses” Stewart stepped up and
played his role down back, Chris “Helmet head” Milroy killed it on his
birthday being the power forward.
The Ned award went to Brad “Tappa” Fawcett who had a bigger comeback
then Jesus into the Reserves side and showed that the team had really
missed him.
Todays win has put us 2nd and it’s good to be back on the winners
list. #upthe2’s #2’saroundthe1’s #uptheneds

After some soul searching during the week following four straight
losses and a gruelling training session on Monday, the boys were eager
to make up for a poor month of footy. The first quarter against the
Panthers was an even contest as the boys took a 7 point lead into the
first break. The wind was as bad as it has been for some time which
made any smooth passages of ball movement hard to come by. We however,
stood up in the big moments and won plenty of contested ball and
clearances – something we have struggled with this season. The margin
increased to 30 points at the main break and we didn’t take the foot
off the pedal from there, continuing our surge and running out victors
by 54 points. Finally back on the winners list and we now look forward
to proving what we are really capable of.

Pyramid Hill welcomed Marong in icy cold, blustery conditions for the Minis match.The wind made shooting conditions very difficult, but to the girls’ credit, they didn’t give up. They displayed some good passing and teamwork – well done girls! Awards went to Kaitlin Broad and Eleisha Ferguson.


It was a windy day at Pyramid Hill, making it tricky conditions for the girls. Although it was tough, the Pyramid Hill Doggies smashed it in the first quarter and came out with a strong lead. Throughout the game the girls played immaculately, despite the horrible conditions, with consistent intercepts and accurate shooting. Well done girls on another fantastic win! Awards went to Imogen Broad, Kara Farrell and Sammi Moon. Pyramid Hill 36 defeated Marong 6.
After a confidence building previous week against Serpentine, the 17&U Doggies were back to their old selves, with fantastic defence, great flow in the mid-court and even the terrible, gusty winds couldn’t stop their awesome shooting. The girls played their game well and exhibited great discipline up and down the court. With an awesome second half, the Doggies were able to run away with a well deserved win. Everyone played an immaculate game, but stand outs were Jorja Moon and Amy Murfitt. Pyramid Hill 52 defeated Marong 16.
With the weather against the girls, they were determined to win. From the first whistle to the last the Doggies fought hard, defensive pressure throughout the court was excellent and the girls stuck to their structures. Everything flowed beautifully and the girls brought home a win. Thank you to Morgan and Jamie Dingwall and Megan Belot for helping. Best on was awarded to Abbey Dingwall. Well done girls! Pyramid Hill 36 defeated Marong 17.
In freezing conditions, the B grade girls took to the court. Despite the gale force winds, Amber and Megan shot accurately. Milly and Hayley, the ‘Rebound Queens’, dominated in defence, creating numerous opportunities to boost the score level. Tess and Chels brought the ball down the court nicely, allowing the girls to take home a tidy 29 goal win. Stand out of the match was Megan Gunther. Pyramid Hill 44 defeated Marong 15.
The C grade girls were coming off a win and ready to jump on the court, however, the grey skies and winds threatened the game. The sky cleared and some great passages of played and defensive forces meant the girls were able to get a 2 goal lead at half time. The Doggies dug in and extended the lead at three quarter time, eventually taking home the win. Pyramid Hill 23 defeated Marong 18. Best on was awarded to Isabelle Renner.
The Ressie girls fought hard for all four corners in a wicked, windy day. The girls shot and rebounded well considering the tough conditions. Mikayla ‘Magnificant’ McMahon ran her heart out in C and scored herself best on for the match. Great teamwork from all! Pyramid Hill 19 defeated Marong 13.
