A Grade: Kingscote vs Dudley - Another close match for Kingscote this week, coming out in front by two goals in the end just the confidence booster they needed.
It has been years since Kingscote defeated Dudley in the A grade. It was a tight close match the whole way through with Kingscote defenders working well together with the mid court to get it down easier than previous weeks.
Kingscote Goalies having to work hard with great pressure from the Dudley defenders. Great feeding and drive down the court from Eliza Sheridan-Turner. Kingscote up by five going into the last quarter and just held on in the end. Great game to watch!
C Grade: Kingscote vs Dudley United - The game started quietly with many unforced errors from both teams, mainly due to poor passing. Dudley had the best of the play with Tash Willson making the most of her height in goal keeper and several U15s players bringing quick, young legs.
Kingscote's defences were able to turn some balls over in the first half with strong rebounding but Kingscote was overall lacklustre and could not capitalise.
Alice Robinson shot strongly for Dudley. The Eagles were up by six goals at half-time. Wholesale position changes at half-time did little to lift Kingscote but a burst of energy early in the final term gave Kingscote a sniff of victory.
Bridget Black lifted her team from centre and the mother-daughter combination of Iris and Juanita Warena in goals proved an intuitive and sure combination to give Kingscote an unexpected nine-goal turnaround victory.
D Grade: Kingscote vs Parndana - Kingscote dominated the goal scoring for the first half with excellent defense from Pauline Ward and Alicia Jamieson. Even court play from both teams. Kingscote winning comfortably in the end but once again score didn't reflect the play.
