Wet start to the season doesn’t deter netballers

The 2022 Tumut Netball Association season kicked off under grey skies on Saturday with division 5 taking to the courts.

The Unicorns defeated Tiger Pride and Fergies Purple Thunder defeated Live Wires.

By the time the Net-Set-Go skills and games got under way, the sun had come out, and it promised to be a great day.

Canteen awards went to Charlotte Graham, Isla Stubbs, Caila Sanderson, Maeve Ryan and Ada Wedding-Lazarus.

In division four, Cool Rainbows defeated Strikers, Sparkles accounted for Elliott’s Landscaping 11s and Goodes Coaches 12 were just a bit too good for the Hot Sparks in a close game which could have gone either way. 

At the end of the first quarter, it was 5-all and 9-7 at half time in favour of the 12s but by the end of the third quarter, the Hot Sparks had taken the 19-16 lead, but to their credit, the 12s ran out winners 22-19.

In division 3, the Gym Buddies beat TPH Aces, Murrays 13s defeated Club Tumut 14s and Snowy Owls were too good for the Tiger Magic.

The Chalkies knocked off McFlurries and Little Possums were good when beating Batlow RSL in the division 2 games.

In division 1, Crampton’s Electrical 17s knocked off The Dividers, Talent Times defeated the DME 15s and Bowlie got up over Carve It Up.

Netballers, parents and spectators are pleased reminded that there is to be no dogs, scooters, bikes or skateboards on the courts on Saturday during netball.

Also, if you can’t do your umpiring, please find a reliable and competent replacement.
