Pingelly 1 were made to work hard for their third win of the season, defeating Flames 1 by 23 goals in round four of the Narrogin and Districts Netball Association A1 competition on Saturday afternoon.

Flames, similar to each of their previous games, started off strongly and utilised their speed of ball transition and mobile shooting circle to challenge Pingelly’s defenders.

Flames’ Jessica Daniels shot accurately to get her side off to a good start.

Pingelly were without one shooter due to injury and a subsequent defensive player was forced from the court in the second quarter due to hamstring troubles meaning the winners had to swing players from their preferred positions.

Leanne Watts had a fantastic three quarters in defence and new team member Tracey Swami at goal shooter combined strongly with Katelyn Beard at goal attack in the win for Pingelly.

Pingelly finished the game strong to record the highest overall team score for the season to date, downing Flames 69-46 at the final whistle.

Flames centre Amelia Sherry produced a terrific performance, linking the play for her team throughout the match and standing up to the close attention of Pingelly’s Rheannon Turton.

It was another gallant defeat for Flames, who are testing their rivals but are yet to win a game this season.

In the other A1 fixture played on Friday night, Williams 1 and Olympics Gold played out a thrilling draw, 42-42.

Williams remain on top of the table with seven points while Pingelly are nipping at their heels with six points from their four games.
