OCEAN Grove A Grade started the 2016 netball season at Shell Road against a new-look Drysdale line-up, with some promising junior talent emerging.
However, it wasn’t Grove’s day, going down to Drysdale by seven goals.
A Grade – Ocean Grove 34 vs Drysdale 41
Best: K. Ollis, S. Hackett, E. Moroney
Grove had a close first half against Drysdale with the 17 and under girls showing their style. Abbey Badrock, Em Moroney and Claudia Britt are part of the upcoming talent at the club. The club also welcomed back Shelby Hackett who starred in defence in the second half with Kelsey Ollis.
B Grade – Ocean Grove 60 vs Drysdale 29
Best: L. Hood, M. Badrock, A. O’Keefe
An impressive game from the B Grade girls, Lucy Hood and Alyse O’Keefe, who worked tirelessly in centre attack with the ever reliable Meg Badrock stopping Drysdale from scoring freely.
C Grade – Ocean Grove 21 vs Drysdale 22
Best: B. Gavin, B. Fankhauser, K. Geerings
A tight contest with nothing separating the teams until the end. Britt Gavin fed goaler Katie Geerings to a tee with Bree Fankhauser making the ’Dale attackers work extra hard.
D Grade – Ocean Grove 23 vs Drysdale 33
Best: K. Collins, K. Boswell, B. Walter
D girls found their mojo in the last quarter but it was too late. Kim Collins, coming back from last year’s injury, had her scoring shoes on together with Keely Boswell who played on both wings with Brooke Walter getting the stoppages in defence.
