Netballers go hard in finals

NETBALL: Pride was on the line on Monday night at the grand final of the Kingaroy Netball fixtures.

The teams did not disappoint the enthusiastic crowds cheering them on.

Victory in A1-grade went to Team Bombers over Team Stingers by nine goals.

Stingers goal defence Sherry Sandow put in an impressive performance to be named player of the final.

The most valuable player in A1-grade went to centre Elizabeth O'Chin, also from Stingers.

Bombers captain Vicki Hurt said despite having two players sidelined with ankle injuries, it was a good season for the team.

"It has been a good competition in that a lot of teams have been very competitive,” she said.

"There hasn't really been anyone that you would know that was going to win straight up.”

The A2-grade final was hard fought and in the end taken out by team Lynx over team Plum Tarts by three goals.

It is the fourth season Lynx has taken the court in the competition.

Lynx captain Amanda Astill said the team had enjoyed a great season, despite some injuries, and was proud to take the win.

"We played with six tonight but we surprised each other that we won,” she said.

Lynx goal shooter Anna Campbell was named player of the final and the opposing goal attack, Plum Tart's Renee Irvine, was voted most valuable player.

In B-grade, team Strappers defeated Rack Pack by three goals.

Abby Hay was named player of the final and Leah Fisher from Barambah Diamonds was voted most valuable player of the season.

In C-grade, Thunderstruck claimed victory over the Dragonflies by five goals.

Player of the final went to Chloe Winston and Tammy Walker from Magnificent 7 was voted most valuable player of the season.
