BEAUTIFUL conditions on Saturday afternoon at Mooroopna Recreation Reserve paved the way for four cracking games of netball, which did not disappoint the large crowd that gathered.

A Grade
The Euroa A grade girls stared solidly, piling on the first four goals before the Mooroopna troubled the scorer.

Hannah Kennedy was busy in wing defence, getting a hand to many balls and creating headaches for her opposition, while sharp-shooter Maddie Morrison settled in well under the post to provide a consistent option for the team.

Mooroopna defended well, however, and hit back solidly late in the first term, thwarting Euroa’s offence and stifling the forward momentum and this saw Euroa trail by five goals at quarter time.

The second quarter saw the injection of Jas Trotter into the match in wing attack, with the coaching staff needing to re-configure the Euroa attack in an attempt to regain momentum, and that they did.

Trotter was sensational, gaining several centre-pass receives and finding the circle edge in attack, thereby allowing easy supply to her goalers.
