Bundjalarms take out netball title
BUNDJALARMS took out the Lismore Netball Association Division 1 grand final with a hard-fought 43-36 win over the Woodlawn Herons at the Marie Mackney courts on Saturday.
It was the fifth grand final appearance for the minor premiers Bundjalarms while Herons knocked out defending champions Daleys in the semi-finals.
The final was a very physical game with both teams showing great skills.
Bundjalarms were up by one goal at half-time taking a narrow 19-18 lead into the break.
A change in positions for Bundjalarms moved Tamara Yates into goal shooter and pocket rocket player Zoe Williams to goal attack.
It sparked the attack and by the third quarter break Bundjalarms were up by three goals at 30-27.
They eventually skipped away for the eight-point win.
Standout players for Bundjalarms were Emma Sculley at goal keeper and Williams.
The Woodlawn Herons were best served by Zoe Lawrence- Daly at goal shooter and centre court player Courteney Watson.
