for over 20 years
v. South Gawler
Netta 2 - Nuriootpa had a
tough game this week. The op-
position were quite tall so it was
important that the girls led to the
ball and got in front. Nuriootpa
had some trouble doing this so there were quite
a few turnovers. Also need to practice getting into
space which will do at training. No one gave up
which made the coaches very happy.
Awards, Harper Fitzgerald And Eveana Boon.
Netta 1 - After an extremely good training
on Wednesday night the girls showed what they
had on the court again Saturday morning. The
South Gawler side played a very strong game
but at no stage did the girls ever give up and
the coaches were extremely proud to see all the
girls take onboard any advice and tips they had
to give them and are excited to see the further
improvements in the girls’ game. Awards, Jade
Poland and Zoe Valente.
Primary 2 - Another exciting game for the
girls. An amazing effort in defence by Zella Mason,
Regan Marks and Chelsey Start kept South’s
scoring opportunities to a minimum. A strong
hard fought effort all through the court had the
game ending in a draw. Coach was impressed with
how much the girls are improving each week. Well
done girls and keep up the hard work. Award
winners were Zella Mason, Regan Marks and
Primary 1 - Nuriootpa came up against some
tough opponents but the girls never gave up.
Coach was so proud of how they kept their heads
held high and tried their hardest. Nothing is
more pleasing than when they go out and try
new things that they work on at trainings. Lots
of positives they can take away from their game.
All seven girls are doing a great job and to come
away with the draw was fantastic. Keep up the
good work girls. A big thanks went to the Senior 6
buddy team for coming out. The girls loved their
treat. Awards, Sarah Rowson and Tilli Linke.
Sub Junior 3 - The Subbie 3 girls had another
one goal win on Saturday! The girls rose to the
challenges that were presented and played a
really strong game! Awards went to Anniki Sich
for her strong game in goals and to Kasey Ware
for her fantastic leads through the midcourt.
Sub Junior 2 - Once again Nuri showed they
do have what it takes, however lack of height and
poor passing again allowed South to take the
control of the game and run away with the victory.
Nuriootpa presented patches of good play, and
positional changes showed what a versatile team
they are. However, Nuri needs to maintain their
personal confidence and enjoyment of the game
in order to be able to play out the four quarters
to the best of their abilities. Shout out and special
thanks went to the Buddy Team and reserve
players for their continued support throughout
the match. First, Lilly McDonald; second, Eva
Lydeamore and third, Zara O’Loughlin.
Junior 3 - Nuri 16 d Trinity Red 8. Awards,
Abbey Clark and Olivia Valente. A brilliant first
game from the Junior 3’s who hadn’t had much
time to train together as a squad. Nuri started
strongly and managed to maintain the lead for the
whole game. Awards went to Abbey Clark, one of
the first gamers, who had a grin from ear to ear
all game and played an amazing game, blocking
up the court and taking some brilliant intercepts.
Second award went to Olivia Valente who put her
hand up to make the switch from GK to GS and
wowed everyone with great moving in the circle
and some amazing goals! Well done to the whole
team who held their heads high and all com-
municated so well to get the ball down the court
and into the goals, it was a brilliant team game!
Junior 2 - Awards, Laura Furnell and Hannah
Stevenson. Another great game and everyone
took what they did at training onto the court
with them. A really strong start, which slowed
in the third quarter but the girls dug deep and
fought hard for a great win. First of the award
winners was Laura Furnell who played out of a
normal position but was a great defender and took
some brilliant intercepts. Second went to Hannah
Stevenson who fed the ball in beautifully to the
goal circle and helped to block up the centre third.
Thanks went to the Buddy team, the Senior 5’s
for coming out to support the team!
Junior 1 - Nuriootpa played three quarters
of the match at a steady pace but were missing
their spark. Mostly the girls made hard work of
getting the ball through to their goals and found
the deficit increased slightly each quarter. Amber
Perry played a gutsy game at WA, strong to the
ball and reoffered beautifully creating opportu-
nities for the attacking end. At the last break
Nuriootpa were eight goals behind and agreed to
dig in, get a few goals back and ensure the differ-
ence didn’t blow out. Well somewhere out on that
court someone lit a fire and Nuriootpa took off at
a cracking pace. Several turnovers were converted
quickly by the goalies and in just over ten minutes
the gap was gone. Abby Materne, who had been
focused and determined all game, found another
gear and combined beautifully with Holly Bell
to shut down the South goal circle. There were a
few opportunities for both sides to take the win
in final few minutes. What a good finish. It was
a beautiful thing to see everyone lift. Best, Abby
Materne, Amber Perry and Holly Bell.
Inter 2 - Another great win for the girls and an
amazing effort by the whole team. Kellie Jantke,
Jess Hefford and Ruby Coles had a strong game
in defence keeping South to only two goals in the
second quarter whilst Tiesha Perry and Daria
Gerlach put on a great display in goals, reward-
ing everyone’s efforts. Amber Kalleske, Ebony
Mustard and Kaylee Caruso were steady in the
middle and moved the ball well into the goal cir-
cle. A special thanks went to the Netta 2’s for
their encouragement and words of wisdom in the
breaks. It’s great to see the girls working so well
as a team and the positivity on court is fantastic.
There’s still plenty of things they can take away
from the game and improve on, which is going
to be exciting to see. Award, Daria Gerlach and
Senior 5 - A solid start from the Nuri girls who
kept up with South Gawler in the first quarter.
The second quarter was a challenge for Nuri who
had lost some of their first quarter confidence and
despite their best efforts South gained a consid-
erable lead. The third quarter break had South
with a confident 24 goal lead to which the Nuri
girls set out their own challenge to pull the deficit
back to under 20. The final quarter was more like
the netball of the last couple of weeks and Nuri
fought hard to achieve their team goal and they
did. Great effort this week team, looking forward
to the following weeks. A big thanks went to the
Buddy team in the Junior 2’s for their support for
the match. Vouchers, voted by the Buddy team
were best on court, Chelsea Heinrich; second best,
Senior 4 - The Senior 4’s had a hard day at the
office. A different line-up and a well oiled opposi-
tion. Happy to see they never gave up. Final score
was South Gawler 74 to Nuriootpa 28. Awards,
Kirsten Mosey, Kayla Jones and Amanda Noack.
Senior 3 - Best, Ashlee Salter, Victoria Wright
and Deanna Hunter. The first quarter was another
tightly contested game with a bit of a nervous
start from Nuriootpa and with some basic passing
errors and a few missed goals was the reason for
the deficit. Quarter time, Nuriootpa 9 to South
In the second quarter there were a few changes
in Nuriootpa’s line-up with Senior 4 player, Ashlee
Salter going into centre and Deanna Hunter from
wing attack to goal attack which made a huge
difference. Even though they couldn’t peg back
the difference, this gave the tight defence of South
Gawler something to think about and the speed of
transition of the ball from Nuriootpa’s defence and
midcourters, Victoria Wright and Ashlee Salter,
allowed Nuriootpa more scoring opportunities
and Deanna Hunter worked brilliantly as a decoy
in GA, as well as putting up several shots and
gaining a rebound. Half time, Nuriootpa 16 to
South Gawler 23.
The third quarter was another tightly contest-
ed quarter. South Gawler continued to wear down
Nuriootpa’s goalies, however they still stayed
with them and Gawler’s shooting percentage was
stronger. Nuriootpa 26 to Gawler South 35.
Even though there was a difference in the
score line at the start of the final quarter, the
game continually was intense and ultimately
South Gawler’s higher shooting percentage and
Nuriootpa’s basic errors in passing and basic skills
was the end difference. Final score, Nuriootpa 35
to South Gawler 47.
Senior 2 - A great spectacle and evenly con-
tested match between two very similar teams.
Neither team could gain any more than a five
goal lead for much of the game. Tight pressure
and one on one defence made players work hard
for the ball. An unfortunate ‘bee sting’ to Lisa
Stoeckel late in the last quarter came at the most
inconvenient time and South just wanted it a lit-
tle more. Special mention to Brodie Ireland who
played her first full Senior 2 game and what a
fantastic job she did! Best, Courtney Jensen and

v. Gawler Central
Senior 1 - A really good start
to a very competitive game.
Unfortunately Tanunda couldn’t
adjust quickly enough to Central’s
defensive game plan and it cost
them a more competitive score on
the board. Still very positive signs. Award, Tam
Senior 2 - The girls had a solid first quar-
ter against a strong Gawler Central team.
Unfortunately Tanunda lost momentum in the
middle of the game. The coach is very proud of
the girls for finding their feet in the last quarter
and finishing strong. Unfortunately they couldn't
close the gap. Award went to Lisa Crouch for her
Senior 3 - Excellent game by all players. Great
defensive pressure was the key to Tanunda having
a lot of the ball. Third quarter they let Central
back into the game, but a solid last quarter made
the difference. Award, Harmony Chambers.
Senior 4 - What a great team game, all played
very well. Tanunda’s pressure all over the court
was outstanding. They need to keep this up and
take it into the next game. Go Maggie girls.
Award, Sophie Clark.
Senior 5 - A good fight by the Tanunda ladies
against a great team. They got it together in
the last quarter and a lot of good work by every
player. Keep fighting Maggie girls, they can do
this. Award, Ayla Evans.
Senior 6 - A tough game from the first whis-
tle. Full credit to all eight Tanunda girls who
held their own, played their own brand of netball
and came away with a well fought win. Award,
Senior 7 - Great opening quarter on the
replay of the 2016 Grand Final. Central came
back to make it a two goal ball game at half
time. A 13-3 third quarter sealed the game as
the Tanunda girls demonstrated excellent team-
work. Award, Karen Fox.
Inter 1 - A much improved game. There were
some excellent passages of play. Tanunda still
need to work on passing and getting the loose
ball. Award, Jasmine Martin.
Junior 1 - Great game against a quality
opponent. Strong pressure all over the court
led to well earned turnovers with Tanunda’s
goalies finishing off beautifully. Award, Emma
Junior 2 - Very good game by the Tanunda
girls. Everyone was consistent and chased for
any loose balls. Need to work on coming forward
and passing but overall a great effort. Award,
Sub Junior 1 - Even at quarter and half
time, one up at three quarter time. A blistering
first five minutes gave Tanunda a great lead for
the last quarter. Determined netball by all the
players certainly paid off. Award, Halle Martin.
Sub Junior 2- A four nil opening term was
certainly an encouraging start, but it was the
third quarter where the girls surged, leading
12-2 going into the final. A great team effort
helped the girls come away with a very solid
win. Award, Madison McKee.
Sub Junior 3 - Another draw! Tanunda did
a great job focussing on stepping and strong
passes. Their coach is very happy with the
progression they are making. Keep going girls
and hopefully soon enough they will get a win.
Award, Layla Grosser.
Primary 1 - Tanunda started each quarter
well and then came the errors. They had some
wonderful passages of play but generally their
passing let them down. Excellent last quarter
again. The girls need to switch on earlier. Great
game by India Catford. Defences worked hard
all game. Award, India Catford.
Primary 2 - Tanunda were a bit slow to start,
but finished strongly. Sophie Evans fought hard
intercepting all game. Claudia Grocke and Mia
Schaefer combined very well in goals. Gordharna
Wallace learnt a new role and did some fantastic
things and everyone else ran hard. Good try
girls. Award Gordharna Wallace.
Netta 1 - Another great effort by all the
Tanunda girls. After a slow start the girls came
together well and had a great rest of the game.
They are improving every game and should
be very happy with how they played. Award,
Julie Secker, Freeling, receives a
pass in Senior 6’s.
Angaston Senior 6 player, Natalie
Seelander makes a pass.
