Cote 40 Saints 42
This was the 4th match for the under16's in the new regional division one .
After last match the team knew they needed to win, started off steady, made a few errors with timing & missing shots, this gave Saints the 3 goals ahead after the 1st qtr, not making any changes so the team could settle, although getting lots of turnovers, but not converting, every player was working hard in mid court, Saints putting so much pressure on every ball, reaction was far too slow & wasn't happening, lost that qtr, now 4 goals down, changes made for the 3rd quarter getting fresh legs on court tried to disrupt the flow, this made a impact back to 3 goals. Going on to the last qtr Cote started to put pressure on Saints, they worked so hard getting the tips needed to win, this match could of gone either way, Cote were up then Saints up, then right at the last 5 minutes an injury, Cote were on a role at this point, needed to keep focused, started play again now we were level, Cotes centre pass & the forced ball no goal, Saints converted it then Saints centre pass, it still went down court, back to Cote back to Saints & Saints scored.
This was a fantastic display of great Netball by both team, Saints had 100% shooting.
