Magnificent Magpies Kalangadoo continues dominance of Mid South East netball A grade: Kalangadoo 69 d Hatherleigh 47 THE most anticipated match of the day began with an early turnover by Kalangadoo as Hatherleigh gave away the first centre pass. The Eagles were able to get it back and stay in the game for the first quarter with strong intercepts by Erin Watson in the mid-court. With the scores close, it was late in the first before the Magpies managed to get a slight edge. Through the second quarter Kalangadoo stretched the lead with impressive timing by Jayde Peacock who intercepted a number of passes. The turnovers were followed by accurate shooting by goalies Caroline Davey and Melissa Russell. Georgina Brooks and Kaitlin Smith worked overtime in the defensive goal circle for the Eagles. However, it was not enough to curb the accuracy and strong body work of Russell and Davey. BEST PLAYER: Kalangadoo’s Jayde Peacock performed at her best on the weekend to take out the In2Trophies best on court award in the Mid South East A grade grand final. At the other end of the court, the Magpies’ Leah Ousey and Kylie Schultz were tight on their opponents in Keston 12 – Mid SE Grand Final Review, Tuesday, September 16, 2014 Green and Kelsey Bromley. With strong rebounding of any missed shots, they were quick to turn the ball in their team’s favour and make the most of opportunities. Bromley was hesitant under the post as the Eagles relied on Green to do most of the shooting. Annabel Brooks continued to work hard on the defensive wing for the Eagles and Jade Lythgo responded with strength on the defensive wing for the Magpies. Hatherleigh continued to fight hard, but it was not enough to get the edge over an impressive and talented Kalangadoo side. Peacock continued to run hard through the centre for the Magpies and worked well with Jenna Pitt to feed the ball with accuracy into their goalies. At the other end Demi Smith worked hard to time her feeding into her goalies. However, the Magpies defenders were too quick to rebound the ball and turn it over. ON THE LOOKOUT: Kalangadoo’s Melissa Russell steps on to pass to a teammate down court. The final quarter saw Hatherleigh in full force with Demi Smith coming off for a rest and Michelle Hann coming on in the goal ring. While the Eagles came back within six the Magpies were quick to stretch the lead back out to take the win by 22. The In2Trophies best on court was awarded to Kalangadoo’s Peacock.
