Kangas 11 emerged victorious from their hard-fought tussle with Bullets 5 in the game of the round for the Albany Netball Association A7 division last Saturday.

Bullets were the team to beat, winning their previous two games, while Kangas had a strong opening round win before their bye last week.

The game started off well, with Bullets shooter Amy Gribble positioning her body well under the goals, working alongside Clarissa Roos in goal attack.

The Kangas’ defensive skills were proving difficult for Bullets to get through as Mackenzie Weston and Kaitlyn Donald dominated in the first half to give their side a 14-7 half-time advantage.

Bullets hit back in the third, with wing attack Georgina Fraser making strong leads and passes to get the ball into her goal circle.

Despite the fightback, Kangas still won the quarter by a single goal.

Goal defence Bianca Glasby took some excellent intercepts along the court for Bullets but some small mistakes proved costly for her side in the last quarter as they were only able to score four goals.

Kangas captain Makayla Winkelaar played as shooter alongside Macayla Mashi in goal attack and together they scored 11 goals to lead their side to a 33-18 victory.

In the other fixtures, Magpies 4 were big winners over Kangas 12, 58-15, while Grammar 6 had the bye.
