Redlegs rally

FREELING recovered from a poor performance against Willaston last round to defeat Angaston by nine goals in Barossa, Light & Gawler senior one netball on Saturday.


The Redlegs, who scored a senior one season-low 18 goals against the Donnybrooks, recovered to score 50 this week after some in-depth work at training.

Freeling led at every break, but was unable to completely dispose of the Panthers early.

However, the Redlegs stormed home in the final quarter to secure the two premiership points and their second victory of the season.

Freeling coach Deb Meaney was satisfied with an improved attacking performance.

“We got off to a better start this week,” she said.

“The goalies shot better this week, which also helped.

“We did quite a bit of work at training on Thursday with the goalies and feeders.”

Following the 32-goal scoring increase, Meaney said her shooters were the best on the day.

“Our goal shooter, Kirsty (Marr), she was actually quite strong as a shooter and a vocal target for us,” she said.

Angaston will take on unbeaten reigning premiers Barossa District this weekend in an attempt to get its season back on track, while Freeling faces Gawler Central.

“We’ll have a look at the match-ups, they’ve got some new players I haven’t seen before; it’s always difficult the first time you play a team like that,” Meaney said.
