Pink Ladies on target

GHS Pink Ladies continued their march towards the finals with an exciting eight-goal win over Redmen Aussie Hotel in their A-grade encounter on Saturday.

Shooters Kim Blinman and Trudy O'Mahony defied the wet conditions to lay the platform as Pink Ladies ran out 39-31 winners.

Continuing drizzle meant the match started slowly as the players took time to find their feet on the wet court but Blinman and O'Mahony quickly found their range to give Pink Ladies the early advantage.

Emily Durrington was also impressive for Pink Ladies, her quick passes giving Blinman and O'Mahony plenty of opportunities.

At the other end of the court, the Redmen shooters did their best to keep within reach.

A series of tactical changes, including switching out shooters each quarter, allowed attacking players Connie Howell, Nicole Mackie and Sarah Templeton to keep the pressure on their opponents.

Redmen threatened to steal the win with a spirited fightback in the final term but Pink Ladies held on for a deserved win.

In other A-grade matches played Saturday, Tucabia Opals downed SSB Top Shelf 23-16, Tucabia Southies submitted to Redmen Aussie Steakhouse 21-49 and City Waratahs scored a comfortable 38-12 win over City Knights.
