Vs North Kent County
The Kangaroos played a solid first half of netball and were made to work extremely hard for every ball. The girls went into the half time break 11 goals ahead. The third quarter saw the North Kent girls really step up the intensity and pulled the score back to be within 6 goals at three quarter time. Credit to the Kangaroo girls, they were able to recompose themselves and ran out winners in a tight and intense last quarter. A great result for the birthday girl herself Kelsey.
After a slow start our defence came together in the second quarter and began to turn over a few balls. At half time we came off with a 2 goal lead. Our attackers worked hard in the last half of the game showing incredible patience and finished off with some fantastic shooting. All of the girls worked hard in the last quarter to secure our 6 goal lead. We showed some great resilience and team work on court this evening and it was great to see all the girls hard work pay off yet again.
All teams played their pentultimate games tonight against North Kent. The Emus started strong and used the ball well. Playing to instruction, the team opened up a handy lead at the first break. The second quarter was a similar story with the defence repelling attack after attack and speedy movement through the midcourt allowed our shooters to get early hands on the ball. We soon opened up a handy lead at the major break. The third quarter was a tighter affair with us narrowly winning the quarter. Again the last quarter was tight but we maintained the intensity and ran away with a good win. All players should be proud of themselves and how far they have come on this tour.
