The Narooma Netball Club returned to action in Broulee on the weekend with a number of positive results.

The Narooma Shooting Stars outshone the Mexican Waves in a 9-4 victory. Team captain Sierra played some inspiring netball as usual, and one parent made the comment that she spent more time in the air than she did on the ground. 

Player of the match went to Lily, who was amazing in attack; she scored at least half the goals in the match. She also worked hard in defence to win the ball back.

Topaz also had one of her best games of the year. She worked smoothly with her team mates, and has improved dramatically since the first game.

The shooting stars are sitting in fourth on the ladder, and have a good chance of getting into the semi finals in the coming weeks.

The Narooma Comets came up against the Broulee Bluebirds in what ended up being a one sided affair. The Narooma girls put 64 goals, on the Bluebirds and dominated in almost every facet of the game.

Allie-Mae Cook played one of her best games for the Comets, as she controlled the attack perfectly from the centre position. Allie-Mae finished the game with 36 passes into the shooting circle for 22 goal assists.

Angie Puglisi also had a fabulous game. She finished the game with an outstanding 20 turnovers won for the Comets.

Luka Hutcheson achieved a personal milestone when she finished the game with a successful shooting percentage of 85 per cent. Luka has been trying to get her shooting above 80 per cent all year but has never been able to break that glass ceiling.

Coach Jane Rogerson was pleased with all the girls efforts and was happy the Comets took the opportunity to cement their spot on the top of the table.
