SCOTS 1 defeat Strikers in the Grand Finals!

Estie Wiid | Netball Coach

The end of the netball season resulted in great triumph and victory for our Open Netball team ‘SCOTS 1’, last Monday night in front of a packed out crowd at WIRAC.

Fans witnessed an extremely close match between two teams who fought tirelessly throughout the entire game. Both sides battled hard in all quarters, each giving 100% to make crucial turnovers.  At the end of the fourth quarter the scores were tied, invoking a further 10 minutes to the game to force a result.

The extra time tested the skills and nerves of our girls, however they responded well under pressure right until the final buzzer.   In unison with our band of loyal supporters, our SCOTS 1 girls worked together to the dying seconds of the match to transfer the ball into the goal circle and secure a thrilling five-point victory over Strikers. A well-deserved win, which demonstrated the determination of every player on the court.

As the saying goes ‘the harder the battle the sweeter the victory’ –  we couldn’t be more proud of the effort and tenacity shown by the team.

Thank you to our loyal parents, supporters and fans for your ongoing encouragement and support on the sideline – you all certainly pushed the girls to do their very best.

Special thanks must also go to the coach, Tiffany Cullen, who worked with the girls during countless early morning training sessions, to reach their full potential.
