This week's round of matches for the junior and senior competitions for the Macleay Netball Association saw some great games played once again.
In the junior competition there were some many entertaining matches on display.
This week's junior profile game was between two Saints Comets teams, which was always going to be a tough one for the Mercury team.
Mercury is a team of Under-8 and 9-year-olds, who have only played on the hard court service for one year after coming off the grass courts.
They were up against an older side with Under-11 players and more experienced team in the Milky Way's.
The game ended up 13 points to two in favour of the Milky Way's but the score didn't reflect the hard work shown throughout the game by the Saints Comets Mercury.
There was some awesome work on the defensive end by Mercury players Ruby McLeod, Lily-Rose Tester and Paige Brazel. Their never give up attitude was excellent.
Their ability to read the play and pull off intercepts was amazing to watch from the sideline.
There was good work by the attacking players and as it's only early in the competition, they will be building slowly no doubt as the season progresses, which is something to look forward to.
The Mercury team is hoping that next time they come up against their training partners, the Milky Way's, they can get a closer score line.
Coaches of the Mercury girls are super proud of them and said it's so nice to see them not give up and not be intimidated by playing such older and experienced opponents.
There were some great match ups in the other junior games with a few club-verse-club games that were great to watch.
Always good to see some healthy competitions between club teams.
The junior competition is thriving and it's such a great and positive thing to see so many young players coming through the ranks each year. There is so much talent and good sports amongst them, it's a great thing.
The Macleay Netball will now break for two weeks for the Easter school holidays and return to competition on Saturday May 4.
We hope all of our members and clubs have a fun and safe Easter break and we look forward to seeing you all back on the courts ready for more netball action in two weeks.
