Bombers bounce back to form

KAPUNDA’S season is back on track after it defeated Angaston by three goals in a thrilling game of Barossa, Light & Gawler senior one netball on Saturday.

Only one game separated the sides on the ladder entering the weekend’s contest, and they could barely be split throughout the game, with neither able to take the ascendancy by a comfortable margin.

Both sides went goal for goal early in the final quarter, but Kapunda’s experience shone through as it capitalised on turnovers, and pushed the game out of Angaston’s reach.

Angaston star Kimberley Seelander was frustrated at another missed opportunity for her side.

“It was a very close game, each quarter we were basically even,” she said.

“It came down to the last quarter, and it was goal for goal at a couple of stages, they got a few turnovers.

“We couldn’t really bring that back.

“(For us), Courtnie Moulds was solid in goalie, and I’d have to say Bec Roesler in defence.”

Seelander said a number of Kapunda’s senior heads controlled the game.

“Stacey Burgess, she was put in defence and was a bit of a hunter, she gets those intercepts,” she said.

“Tab MacKenzie hardly missed on Saturday, and Penny Chappell still has it as well.”

Kapunda can maintain its spot in the top four with a win against Gawler Central in a fortnight’s time, while Angaston needs to regroup before taking on Willaston after the June long weekend bye.

“That’s going to be a tough game, they’re very physical,” Seelander said.

“We’ll have to play our style of netball, which we’re working on at this stage, and, hopefully, we’ll come away with the win.

“We look good on paper, but we can’t get it together on Saturday, sometimes.”
