Wickepin and Wagin have both held onto tight victories in week two of the Narrogin and Districts Netball Association’s A1 competition.

On Friday night Wickepin got the better of Williams in a game full of changes to the scoreboard leaders.

Wickepin led 8-4 at the first break, before Williams scored eight goals to four in the second term, giving them a one-goal lead at the main break.

Defensive pressure from Wickepin proved the difference, as they recorded a 30-26 win, after regaining the advantage 22-21 during the final break.

Emily Davey and Kelly Steere held up Wickepin’s pressure in defence.

Wagin’s win over Olympics Gold over the weekend was just as tight.

Olympics headed into quarter-time trailing 10-13, before outscoring Wagin 15-11 in the second term, leading 25-24 at half-time.

Ata Elliott, Careese Ranieri and Wynta Kapene kept their side in the match up until the end of the third quarter, with nothing separating the sides heading into final break. The trio forced a number of turnovers from Williams’ players, giving Wagin a chance in the final term.

Kelsey Aird, Laura Hutton-Storer and Kristy Ball dominated the last half in goals and attack for Wagin, as they broke away in the last quarter for a six-goal win, 52-46.

Elliot was best-on-ground for the match, while Olympics pair Libby Hilder and Malita Davey also collected votes from the umpires.
