C grade showed some improvement in the goal circle this week with the help of some younger shooters stepping up. Girls persisted and played a strong four quarters throughout seniors however, DMB were too strong.

Another great game for the juniors with younger kids stepping up to fill positions. Many of them riding off the high from under 15s. Strong defence in the ring held off the DMB attack but a strong team effort saw the girls steadily push out the margin in the second half to produce a comfortable win.

What an awesome win. If any of the Cat’s girls needed a win it is these little champs. It was great to see the girls come together to produce a real team effort and have some fun. This the first win in about a year and a half for these girls and their highest goal score this season.

Flu and Covid saw a number of U13’s stepping in to help out. Again, Dederang put up a good fight, but something lifted in these girls today and pure determination paid off resulting in a well-earned win.

Great win for the girls this week. DMB played a competitive game but the Rutherglen girls just gelled this morning to produce some amazing passages of play through the mid court feeding into goals.

Accuracy in the goal circle rewarded the girls who worked really hard in the mid court. Shout out to Tilly and Acacia who improve out of sight week after week. Well done champions.

Dederang Mount Beauty were a quality opposition thought the cats showed us how far they have come with some competitive skilled netball. The girls are getting better each week. Keep having fun.
