Junior Maccabi Netball girls win Winter Indoor League

Posted: 19-Sep-2013 by Maccabi WA

Loftus Centre Indoor Winter Netball Competition

Maccabi netballers won final in the 11 -13 years age group against the previously unbeaten (in the 2013 Winter League), Coolbinia Emeralds.

The pressure was on. At the start Maccabi were quickly into stride with an early 2 – 1 goal advantage. However the confident Coolbinia girls soon established themselves and raced to an 8 – 3 lead at quarter time. It looked somewhat one sided at that stage but the second quarter was much more even with Maccabi fighting back to be only two goals down at half time, 11 – 9.

The third quarter was a battle with both sides fighting hard to gain control but neither getting on top. Maccabi by that time had narrowed the gap to a single goal going into the final quarter down by 16 to 15. The beginning of the final quarter saw both teams continuing the close contest, until in a telling burst in the last few minutes the Maccabi girls finishing full of spirit against their tiring opposition to go on to a 22 -18 victory.

Club President Bev Salant said, " Mazeltov to our incredible Junior Netball A Division team for winning the finals.Through-out the Winter season our girls have shown great sportsmanship and determination and not only hold the 'Winners' trophy, but also have a fantastic reputation amongst the other teams in their league. Our girls have done Maccabi very proud. Many thanks to our fantastic coach Claudi Beitz. "
