Oberon Netball Club had three teams in grand finals last week and all three came away with a victory.
The Hotshots had a slow start, with LJ Hooker putting in three goals in the first few minutes. In the second quarter, with a few changes, the girls started to play their own game. It was the team’s lowest scoring game all season as well as the hardest.
Both teams were fairly even. There were intercepts from both sides and some nail-biting from parents. The full time score was 7-7.
After one minute of extra time, no goals were scored.
The game went into seven minutes of overtime. Hotshots put in two quick goals, followed by LJ Hooker shooting for the next, but they were shut down by Oberon's defence.
Final score was 9-8.
The Hotshots thank parents and grandparents who supported the team all season and a special thanks to manager Monique Coyle for her effort throughout the season. Congratulations to Cady Coyle and Georgia Pincott for making the Bathurst representative team and Makayla Taggart for receiving best and fairest in the grand final. Hotshots also won the highest goal average in 16 years and under. Congratulations from coach Kathy Rawlings.
THE Oberon Vixens B grade netball team would like to thank Sarah Rayner, Laura Hogan, Kathy Rawlings and Kylee McGrath for all their support.
After a nervous and controversial start, the girls went out and took an early lead and maintained this lead throughout the game. Firecrackers have been the dominant team of the season, going into the grand final undefeated.
B grade, as the underdogs, achieved an outstanding result, with the final score being 22-28.
OBERON Enigma C grade took the lead early and never gave it up, winning 30-20 against CSU Rumbos.
The girls had a great season, with lots of fun and laughs along the way. They won by playing fair and are still in shock as it is their first grand final win. Congratulations, ladies - not a bad effort for a group of ladies who didn't train or warm up.
The under 16s missed the finals by only one point.
