Fierce games in netball grand finals

Netball The bitterly cold weather was no deterrent for players and spectators at the netball grand finals on Saturday morning.

In the Intermediate game, the Doves battled it out with the Wrens in what was a closely contested game but in the end the Doves took the match at 20 - 15.

Both teams played fiercely throughout the season but in the end the Doves proved too strong for the Wrens to take the

title.

After drawing and going into overtime in their last clash, senior teams the Garnets and the Pearls were prepared for another tough fight.

However the Pearls strong defence combined with an even stronger attack made it impossible for the Garnets to catch up as they took out the game at 31 - 13.

Media coordinator Kay Knight said outdoor Netball will now take a break but they are preparing to come back bigger and stronger next year.

"Registrations went up from 90 to 114 this year,” Knight said.

"We're hoping to attract more players next year because the competition is growing.”

Trials will begin early next year to prepare the girls to for the representative competition.

Knight also gave a special thanks to Stanthorpe State High School for allowing Stanthorpe Netball Association to use the school's courts while their regular courts are being renovated.
