Netaball Review – Round Three 2021

Bunbury continued it’s impressive start to the South West Netball Football League after rolling to a 60-41 win over the Blackwood Ravens at the South West Sports Centre.

Both sides started fiercely, with accurate shooting from both teams.

Ravens playmaker Kelly Rogers was shooting exceptionally well and took most of the shots for her side.

However, as the game went on Bunbury’s defensive pressure on the Raven’s increased – taking intercepts, forcing errors and causing held balls.

With some quick passages of play, the Bulldogs pushed the margin out and dominated for the remainder of the game.

The Eaton Boomers had all the answers against Carey park and cruised to a 52-27 win, although it did not start out so one sided.

Both teams went goal for goal with Cat Grochowski in fine form for the Panthers and Kasey Joy and Jasmin Culverwell at the other end for the Boomers.

Close to half time an injury was sustained by Carey Park’s  Renee Cashell, who was playing in goal shooter, which ultimately changed the momentum of the game.

In the second half, the Boomers outplayed the Panthers.

Eleanor Yates and Natasha Zappia managed to get on top through the mid court and fed the ball to their shooter Jessica Knight and Mikashia Watts who ensured the Boomers won in style.

Also, Busselton played Harvey Brunswick Leschenault with the Magpies chalking up a 57-46 win.

Busselton made it two wins in a row on the Sunday, when they thrashed South Bunbury 67-35.

However the game was punctuated by a dynamic battle between South Bunbury’s Kirsty Baum and Busselton’s Ella Friffin.

The Magpies led at each break and were able to hold this buffer in the second half, despite best defensive efforts of Tigers duo Sidney Mason and Maddi Nuske.
