Somerset's top Netball team finished the APS Grand Final in style with a 33 point advantage over All Saints Anglican School. The APS 2018 Premiers took out the win on Friday in Week 8, 60 to 27.
All Saints came out firing in the first quarter with scores level going into the break, but with a team regroup and a defensive change, our girls went out defending with heart, gathering turnover after turnover. By halftime Somerset had taken a strong lead, so it was just a matter of sticking to the game plan and playing some good patient Netball.
All Saints tried hard to gain turnovers but Somerset were just too slick with the ball. The speed through the court by Madizen Wilkins and the accuracy in the shooting circle by Kasey Collings and Rylee Burns was difficult for the opposition to defend. Our circle defence was impressive with Erin Crough-Heaton and Natalie Blauberg disrupting the All Saints shooters and gaining crucial possession.
The win was an outstanding team effort led by Captain Kirsty Brodbeck with all players deserving to, once again, bring the Premiership Trophy home.
1st Netball team:
Kirsty Brodbeck (Captain), Madizen Wilkins, Erin Crough-Heaton, Sara Dann, Kasey Collins, Tara Davies, Katisha Webb, Rylee Burns, Natalie Blauberg, April McMullen.
