Bulldogs down Panthers in tense shootout

BAROSSA District and Angaston produced the highest scoring match of Barossa, Light & Gawler senior one netball for the season, with the former getting the win by 14 goals.
The Bulldogs scored 72 goals to the Panthers’ 58 in a shootout.
As it often has, Barossa got off to an ideal start and maintained that lead throughout the contest.
Lisa Wilson and Shannon Caire were electric under the ring for the Dogs, while Courtnie Moulds was the sharpshooter for the Panthers.
Despite Moulds’ shooting efforts, the class of the reigning premiers was too hot to handle for Angaston, as Barossa ran away with the win.
Barossa District coach Roz Fraser was happy with the result in a match she called a “goalies’ game”.
“It was a goal fest, a battle of the goalies,” she said.
“It was a good, attacking game.
“I guess we were lucky that we got a good start, and then we built on that.”
However, the Bulldogs coach said there is some cause for concern moving forward as her side conceded 58 goals – the second highest amount it has given up all season.
“Our defensive pressure needs to build up, but I think our pressure was okay, we just turned a fair bit of ball over,” Fraser said.
“We have to work on that between now and finals.
“Lisa Wilson and Shannon Caire, the two shooters, they were really good.
“Jess Wilson coming into the attacking line as well, that attacking line got us over the line.”
The Bulldogs will be hoping to mathematically seal the top two with a victory over its closest rival, Gawler Central, on Saturday.
“It’ll be tough, every game will be tough from now on as everyone’s fighting for their positions,” Fraser said.
“We have to make sure we’re switched on again and ready to take on the challenge.”
