Western Districts vs Dudley United

15&U: The Western Districts girls have played pretty much all their netball together over the years and it showed on Saturday's game.

They are a highly skilled bunch of girls who know each other's game well. The girls were placed in lots of different positions but this did not affect their game.

The young Dudley team tried very hard to compete. To their credit they doubled their goals scored from the last game to 22 with the Donaldson sister's combining well.

Some stepping and passing let them down through the centre of the court, not reaching Dudley's attacking third often enough to convert. WD 83 Dudley United 22. - Bev Nolan
