Ammos were too good but Claudia Britt was excellent once again for Grove.

The scores wre deadlocked at half time and it only took until the last quarter for Ammos to pull away froma very plukcy Ocean Grove. Amina King was Grove’s best.

Ocean Grove v Modewarre
It was a big clash for the Grove Premier Division against the undefeated Modewarre in perfect conditions and the game certainly didn’t disappoint. Grove led the charge right from the first whistle and although challenged throughout the match, especially heading into the last quarter, the girls kept playing their game style and came away with the four points.

This was always going to be a tough game and that’s exactly what the girls got. Starting even by quarter time, Modewarre gained momentum over the Grubbers and the score started stretching out in Modewarre’s favour. The girls were relentless, and despite coming away with another loss, they came as close as any team has to beating Modewarre.
