At Marong, Pyramid took on a well skilled MGYCW team as the sun was shining. From early on, it promised to be a tight game and the first half saw competitive game play. The second half proved to be lacking the game play needed to keep up with MGYCW and a loss followed. Pyramid Hill 17 df by MGYCW 36. Good luck to the Young Pups who take on Marong this Sunday!
On a magnificent day, the Dogettes stood up to the challenge against MGYCW and started with fantastic defensive pressure. There was a great display of netball, with lots of contesting. Liv Hampson was on fire, taking some brilliant intercepts in the ring. The girls held a one goal lead at first quarter time. Amy Murfitt shot superb long bombs into the goal ring, keeping the Dogettes up with the Eagles’ pressure. Going into the last quarter, the Pyramid girls were down by three goals but put on a massive show to draw even with MGYCW at every shot. Fresh legs come onto the court, with Imo Broad giving the girls some speed and Ella Rowe was shooting from everywhere in the ring with some spectacular goals. Unfortunately, in the final minutes, the Dogettes began losing concentration and made timely errors which allowed the Eagles to widen the margin. Pyramid Hill 50 df by MGYCW 54. A big congratulations to Amy Murfitt for receiving the LVFNL Best On. Good luck to the girls who will take on Bridgewater this Sunday!
It was an incredibly cold and wet day at Mitchell Park, but the Ressie girls warmed up and were pumped for tight contest against the Serpentine Bears. The Doggies started off very strong, taking the first goal and presented themselves eager for a win. Danielle “Catch Me If You Can” Shay was always where she needed to be and partnered beautifully with Kirra “Powerhouse” Sheppard to work the ball into the goal ring. Goaling duo Tylah “Tip Toe” Thomas and Katelyn “The Unstoppable” Wandin put on a show with their beautiful shooting and fought for every loose ball and rebound. Emma “Always Consistent” Murfitt, Jan “Scary Queen” Farrell and Kirsty “The Comeback” Twigg used brilliant defensive pressure and secured impressive intercepts that were executed down the court and into the Doggies’ goal ring. Going into the last quarter there was a 2 goal difference, proving to be an intense and tight game leaving anyone to take home the win. Despite the down pour of rain – leaving the court, the ball and the girls wet – the Pyramid girls fought incredibly hard until the very last second and should be extremely proud of their efforts!
