ROUND 10 REVIEWS | 17 and Under Netball

The Hawks took on Melton South at home and increased their first round margin by 14 goals to win by 31 goals, 46-15.

They played without Mikayla Tunley and Madi Kleiner this week and welcomed Sarah Duff back to the team after a 12-month recovery from an ACL injury.

Well done on your dedication to your rehab Sarah, the club enjoyed seeing you back on court doing what you love. 

The first quarter was a little shaky as the team adjusted to the new combinations across the court and the shooters took a little while to get their eye in, but they were still 9-6 up at quarter time.

The team were asked to focus and concentrate on their delivery of the ball out of the defensive end.

The second and third quarters were very dominant, scoring freely with 25-goals and keeping Melton South to only six. The standard of netball from the Hawks girls was extremely clean with the girls playing a very structured game with the linking play between Sarah and Amy Duff outstanding through the mid-court.

Kate Bartlett was on fire in the defensive end with plenty of clean intercepts and terrific strength under the ring for the rebounds. 

The fourth quarter gave the Hawk shooters Ali Cumming and Emma Cogger plenty of ball through accurate feeding from the circle edge, and they delivered, scoring at 80-percent efficiency to bring home a convincing victory. 

The 17's team are in great form, being undefeated and dominating the competition, but they need to stay focused and approach each game with strong determination as we look towards finals. They look forward to playing the girls at Riddell's Creek next week. Well done girls and Go Hawks!
