Woodies a class act

By BRAD GREENSHIELDS

THE Woodies won their second match of the season in Saturday's Division One clash of the Coffs Harbour Netball Association competition.

In what was expected to be a close struggle with Class Act, the match turned out to be all one-way-traffic for the Woodies.

Despite being a player short for the entire match, the Souths girls still managed to dominate possession and take advantage of their superior pace over a Class Act outfit that was left deflated by the final whistle.

The Woodies star players who directed the traffic were Jacqui Gallagher and Danielle Kirk.

Their efforts were rewarded by Goal Attack Eloise Arnold, who scored 16 of her side's 27 goals.

The final score of 27-1 could have turned out to be a lot worse for Class Act if the Woodies were able to shoot more accurately each time the ball entered the goal area.

In defence of the shooters from both sides, blustery winds did make conditions difficult for high scores.

In the second half, the young Woodies team were barely missing the absent Wing Defence, as Gallagher worked hard from the centre position toget back and help defend for her team and provide a link to the ball hungry players in the goal third.

In other Division One matches on the weekend, the Fruitbats outlasted the Wiggles for a tense 21-17 victory.

C-Horses were too strong in their 35-22 win over Rep-13, while C-Lions cruised to a nine goal final margin against Rip Curls, winning 30-21.
