Great Outcome for a Great Team
THE GYM were crowned Division 1 netball champions after a sensational 33-31 grand final victory over a gallant RSL on Saturday 13th September.
THE GYM had a great start, showing no signs of nerves, and led 6-4 at quarter-time. RSL came out firing in the second quarter and took a 14-12 lead into half time. In an even contest and with several breaks of centre, both teams attempted to capitalise on every available opportunity.
Scores were locked up at three-quarter time, which set up for a final quarter grandstand finish.
In the last quarter of the season, both teams looked to each of their players for that final inspiration.
In front of a vocal crowd, The gym found extra motivation and, under intense pressure, their experienced and younger players lifted, and successfully capitalised on two turnovers.
As the final hooter sounded with the score 33-31 in their favour, The gym could begin their celebrations as they had won their first division grand final.
