The Pyramid Minis team played six fantastic quarters of netball against Calivil. It was great to see that the girls had a lot of opportunities to goal with some successfully going in. There was incredible team work and the girls were able to take some wonderful intercepts in the midcourt. It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves on the court!
It was a tough day for the 13’s girls who came up against a stronger and taller Calivil side. With a few of the regular girls out, there was four girls come up from the Minis – Charli Moon, Eloise Walters, Margarette Caburnay and Delaney Wagner. While the scoreboard showed the Pups to be soundly beaten, it did not show how the passing improved as the game progressed, or how they continued to give it their best. Charli Bone kept her head up and tried her best to launch the Pup’s attacking and Charli Moon never stopped running and leading. The girls in the mid court worked hard, but unfortunately Calivil were hard to stop and they showed great accuracy in goals. Continue to work hard young Pups, as finals are fast approaching! Calivil 48 df Pyramid Hill 6.

The girls worked hard on their defensive pressure across the court, but unfortunately, Kearley went down with an ankle injury that forced the girls to make some changes. It took the young Pup a bit to adjust and step up, but were able to run out victors by eight goals. The awrd went to Sammi Moon. Pyramid Hill 51 df Calivil 43.
Not a great start to the game, with Liv rolling her ankle during the warm up and as a result, the 15’s girl were put on the court to help out, with Sammi Moon and Ava Broderick sharing the Centre position. The Calivil girls proved why they were positioned on top of the ladder, putting pressure on the Dogettes all over the court. To the girls’ credit, they never gave up, continually supporting each other. The goalers worked tirelessly in and around the ring, shooting some beautiful goals under the pressure placed upon them by the tall Calivil defenders. Pyramid Hill 42 df by Calivil 66.
The Ressie girls took the court in Calivil eager to get another win for the season. Going down to Calivil last match by only six goals, the girls pulled out their “A” game! The defensive pressure throughout the entire game was flawless, with Emma and Jan not letting a loose ball get away and Morgan completely blocking out all options to the Calivil WA. C grade star Becca fitted in extremely well, taking multiple intercepts and working the ball through the mid court swimmingly with Dani assisting. Katelyn and Kirra worked very hard inside the ring the entire match, with Katelyn barely missing her goals. Coach Kell alongside injured sidekick Mik could not fault the girls all game from the sideline, and the girls pulled an impeccable win out of the bag with the end scores Pyramid Hill 54 df Calivil 20. Best on was awarded to Danielle Shay.
The C grade girls took the court with a bit of a mix of a team this week, but nonetheless, the girls gave it their all! Hannah Mullins, who got best on for the match, was on fire with her shooting at every angle and getting them in, with the assistance of Kirra. Even the Calivil girls said “does she every miss?” Becca ran the mid court with Chels, stepping in to play her first C grade game for the season. A consistent defence regime from dynamic duo Kell and Jess, and WD from Georgia “Truck” Holland, but unfortunately the shooting from Calivil was just too strong. The Doggies fought hard the entire time but went down Pyramid Hill 40 df by Calivil 50.
