Parndana matches

A Grade – Parndana vs Wisanger

In rather cold and wintery weather were the most skillful teams are tested, Parndana took on Wisanger at home.

Both teams found scoring didn't come easy as their respective defenders scrapped for every loose ball and every wayward pass.

Wisanger's goal shooter Renae Florance was replaced by Amy Escabache after twisting her ankle in the slippery conditions.

Parndana used this opportunity to draw the game at half time being slightly down in that quarter.

Parndana made some positional changes and with a very strong defense took intercept after intercept but their golaers Cori Kelly & Fiona Stanton were unable to convert. 

Though Parndana were up by three goals at the beginning of the last quarter they faced a very determined Panther side.

As the skills of both teams were at times frustrating to watch the game was highly contested with both teams wanting the two premiership points.

As the clock ran down Parndana broke free to win by four goals. Most Consistent Players - Courtney Wood, Rhyannon Gaskin & Janine Wandel (Parndana) Kirsty Buick, Lisa Laffin & Amy Thomas (Wisanger)
