Busselton Have Crushing Netball Win Over Bunbury

Busselton’s dominance in the SWNFL continued after they cruised to a 64-46 win over Bunbury at the South West Sports Centre.

Although it was tough, the match was very one-sided.

With Busselton managing to score off nearly every one of their centre passes, it caused Bunbury to make a few positional changes over the course of the game to try and combat their effectiveness.

Bunbury managed to outscore Busselton in the second and final quarters – however, Magpies  Lisa Millman and Janelle Pagan slotted almost every opportunity that came their way in the third term, which meant the Bulldogs were never able to get within striking distance.

A day later, at the South West Sports Centre, the Eaton Boomers had an even bigger win over Carey Park 66-46, a day after they narrowly defeated the Blackwood Ravens 51-48.

The Panthers started strongly, despite being only a goal down at quarter time.

The battle between Carey Park’s Renee Cashell goal shooter and Eaton Boomers goalkeeper Kasey Joy was fiery and well contested throughout the game.

Carey Park proved to be strong through the mid court with Zoe Buck and Gemma Stewart putting up a strong defence, but the connection  between Boomers Mickashia Watts and Jess Knight were unstoppable in the shooting circle.

Additionally, the Boomers’ mid-court defence won plenty of ball with Natasha Zappia and Biance Vallelonga securing some impressive turnovers, which increased the Boomers lead to 15 goals by three quarter time.  From there, they finished the game with plenty of run.
