Western Districts match reports
D grade - The game started steady for both teams but Western Districts were able to secure the first few goals. Defenders Pauline Ward and Alicia Jamieson (K) played well making it hard for the Western Districts wings to pass into goal shooters but Tessa Shalay and Chloe Pitman (WD) were able to shoot some beautiful long goals which built WD players confidence.
With Kingscote goalie Julie Horsfall departing the game with an elbow injury Michelle Barrett took to the court which gave Tania Rhodes the opportunity to have a run out in the mid court. Going into the second quarter Western Districts made some positional changes all the way down the court. Victoria Francis, Sabrina Davis and Chaye Beckwith (WD) were a tough zone defence against the Kingscote goalies forcing the young mid court players for Kingscote Chloe Keenan and Xenia Lenz to be accurate with their passes into their shooters.
Michelle's height and Tania's athleticism proved necessary and these ladies shot well and fought hard all game. A quick phone call to Carly Johnson and Kingscote had a tall shooter and defender for the second half of the game. Goal shooter combinations for Western Districts Deb, Chloe and Chaye kept the defence thinking and WD were able to sustain their lead for the second half of the game.
Mid court players for WD Tessa Shalay, Leah Couchman, Chaye Beckwith and Fiona McKenzie lead well and took some great intercepts and were a great strength for WD. Kingscote's young mid court players Chloe Keenan, Samantha Nieman and new player exchange student Xenia Lenz positioned and passed well and never gave up.
Both teams using short passes as the ball was slippery due to the cold, wet conditions. Western Districts came away with the points winning a game that was played with great sportsmanship 40-33. Thanks also to umpires Jesamine Wood and Bridget Black, scorers and timer for coming out on a cold and wet Wednesday night. Both teams fought hard all game
B Grade - The game started slow, with good play down the court for both teams keeping the score within two goals at half time. Kingscote's defence put strong pressure on the Western Districts attack with a number of intercepts. Western Districts came out strong in the second half to push out the lead in the third quarter, and eventually came away with the win.
