Wagin secured a convincing win over Williams at home on Saturday in a spectator’s delight, with four quarters of intensity and skill.

The game was fiercely contested and produced some exceptional play from all players, but Wagin ran out winners 43-26.

Wynta Kapene intercepted many balls in goal defence, Careese Ranieri shot and rebounded strongly as goal shooter and Tenille Stephens ran hard, putting immense pressure on her opponents at wing defence and centre.

Wagin held a 10-6 lead at quarter time, before extending it in the second term (21 to 12 at half-time) and putting the foot down in the third, going into the last break with a 32-19 advantage.

Kapene, Tushka Stringer and Stephens were named best on court.

Cuballing triumph

Cuballing have held off Wickepin in a hard-fought week-four match of the Narrogin & Districts Netball Association’s A1 competition.

Wickepin took a one-goal advantage, 13-12, at the first break but Cuballing scored 13 goals to Wickepin’s six in the second quarter to hold a firm 25-19 lead at half-time.

Momentum switch in the third term as Wickepin’s defence worked themselves into the game and their mid court continued to run hard, working the deficit back to four goals, 31-27 at three-quarter- time.

With momentum against them, Cuballing held on to win 38-36.

Cuballing’s solid defence challenged Wickepin’s attack, making them work hard for their goals.
