HARROW-Balmoral left it all on the court to win the 17 and under grand final against Natimuk United.
The side looked deep to find itself the season’s champions when the final whistle blew. The final scoreboard read 21 to 17.
Harrow-Balmoral coach Sammy Crick said the game was a nerve-wracking, but the end result was amazing.
“It was a very tight scoreline, I did say they can’t be close a three-quarter time, but clearly that didn’t play out,” she said.
The Southern Roos were down in the first quarter, 9-3, but pushed hard to stay on the Ewes’ tails by the second quarter. At three-quarter time, the side gained a narrow lead, 16-15.
“We were down at quarter time, but I said that they had to leave everything on the court – there were only three quarters left to this season and they will never play with those girls again,” said Crick.
“We knew that going into the last quarter it had to be a game of possession netball and we had to score off all our centre passes.”
