Angaston takes positives out of third victory

ANGASTON secured its third win of the season by defeating Freeling by 11 goals in Barossa, Light & Gawler senior one netball on Saturday.

The Panthers recovered from a devastating defensive effort against South Gawler, where they conceded 71 goals.

Angaston started in ideal fashion, storming away to an eightgoal lead at quarter-time.

The Redlegs found their groove in the second term, but it wasn’t enough as Angaston had already gained an unassailable lead.

Angaston blew the margin out to 10 goals at three-quarter-time, before putting the icing on the cake in the fourth with the extra goal.

Panthers mentor Lee-Anne Cummins said it was good to avenge their round five loss to the Redlegs.

“It feels pretty good, the girls were certainly pretty pleased,” she said.

“They trained really well on Thursday night.”

Cummins praised senior one mainstay Kim Seelander and mid-courter Emma Keys, but said Freeling’s Nikki Dowden caused her some headaches.

“She played quite well, she started in goalie but then went out to goal attack,” she said.

“She normally plays in defence, but she did very well in goals.”

The Redlegs will take on Gawler Central this week, while Angaston will have to cause the upset of the season to defeat Barossa District on Saturday.

“Obviously, they’ll be strong, they’re fighting to consolidate one of those top two positions,” Cummins said.

“They’ve been a bit unsettled with their line-up.

“We’ll just approach it by trying to play that consistent netball that we played on Saturday.”
