The following are the match reports from the Kangaroo Island Netball Association preliminary finals played at Wisanger on Saturday:
13&U - Western Districts 43 def Parndana 27: First quarter was very even with some good turnovers by both teams. Great movement and shooting from Ava and Lani (P), Grace (WD) have a great game in GA.
Positional changes by WD at quarter time took them a little while to settle but eventually sinking their 1st goal a couple of minutes in. Excellent defensive work by Kelesha (P).
A few missed opportunities from P saw WD sneak ahead with a few more goals. Third quarter some pockets of scrappy play but WD still too strong. In the final quarter Parndana came out strong, determined not to give up.
Charlotte (P) provided fresh legs in Centre. A very comprehensive final quarter, well done Western Districts on a good win.
11&U - Parndana 23 def Kingscote 21: Two excited teams took to the court full of energy. It was fairly equal court play for the first quarter with Parndana able to only pull away by 3 due to accurate shooting by Ava Mills.
Kingscote were not deterred and fought during the second, led by Amelia Florance, to reduce the lead to 1.
Both teams made heaps of changes to start the new half but the game continued the same with equal play and the ball going back and forth a lot.
More changes by both teams but the game play stayed equal with both teams fighting to the end. A great game to watch!
