The Senior A team played off for the top spot in the Premier Senior 1 section on Saturday against Harbour.
The team was pumped and ready to take on Harbour in the final, it was a very physical and fast paced game . Kavanagh was only just ahead at half time. The defensive duo of Hena and Therese managed to pick up a few tips and crucial intercepts and had some amazing leans over the Harbour shooters, putting them off their shots and Kavanagh picking up the rebounds.
Everyone was supporting each other and communication was key in this tight game. Our shooters shot really well and showed their strength in the circle as there was not much room to move. Our mid courters had to drive hard into every ball and did really well with bringing the ball down court.
In the last quarter Harbour started to pull it back but we managed to keep our cool and came away with a 23-19 win!!!! A very well deserved win for the team who started training at the beginning of February. They now move up a grade into Premier C section.
A huge congrats to the coach Kelly Hamill who puts in so much time and energy into these girls, your dedication to Kavanagh Netball is extraordinary and to Kerri who is the most supportive and positive manager. You guys work so well together and totally deserve this win.
Now to prepare for the SISS Netball tournament in 14 days!!
