Falcons pay for being one short as Daleys run rampant
DALEYS defeated Woodlawn Falcons 51-22 in Lismore netball on Saturday, with Workers Rockers and Bundjalarms also winning.
Falcons lost the game in the first quarter when they had only six players on court and Daleys jumped out to a 15-goal lead.
Daleys' solid defensive unit of Lisa Brown and Tracy Birney shut down all the attacking drives by Falcons' centre court.
Maddie Beaumont filled in as shooter for Falcons in the first quarter and tried hard but Falcons will be hoping injured regular shooter Fiona Fennamore is back on court soon.
Workers Rockers defeated Henry Rous White 35-21.
White had to call on talented juniors Samantha Glasby and Olivia Outerbridge with shooter Adriana Lisetto out injured.
Glasby and Outerbridge showed they are ready to step up with neither backing off.
This young side will benefit from the tough competition this year.
Rockers' best were Siteri Doherty, Belinda Perin, Jasmine Crawford and Penny Williams.
Bundjalarms swung the changes, using all 11 players to keep up the fast pace and account for Henry Rous Pink 49-24.
Shooter Victoria Leary and defender Larissa Cumner returned from injury for Pink and although they did their best, lack of match fitness slowed their reactions.
Bundjalarms' best player was Amelia Wright in defence who waged a one-woman war on any loose feeds into the circle.
Woodlawn Herons had the bye.
The courts were buzzing on Saturday with the popular Net Set Go junior program resuming after the holiday break.
