Tough for netballers

Riddell League netballers may have been beaten by a strong Southern League combination on Saturday, but they were certainly not disgraced.

The relatively young RDFNL side was coached by Katie Clarke (Macedon) and began well, but it didn’t take long for Southern players to show their class.

Everyone played their role for the RDFNL, and to be within 12 goals until late in the match was pleasing against such strong opposition.

Late goals enabled the home side chalked up a 64-40 victory.

Madison Brown (Riddell) was exceptional in mid-court and earned the medal for best RDFNL player, and Avana Hobson (Melton Centrals) played very well in defence when she had her opportunity.

Riddell’s Finn McKeagney was also among the side’s best players.
