THE highlight of Saturday's A-grade netball games was the upbeat game between GHS Pink Ladies and SSB Top Shelf.

Top Shelf came out firing, but Pink Ladies soon deciphered their opponent's game plan and kept them on their heels at all times.

The Pink Ladies saw trouble as SSB player Payton Slis sunk five goals in a row, presenting a play style that needed to be remedied if the Ladies were to see a victory.

Justine Crispin, a centre court player for GHS, was quick to pick up on this situation and executed a fine display of intercepts in order to close the gap and bring her team back into the game.

Top Shelf defences Rhee Searle and Zali Webb proved to be a difficult combo to score against, but Pink Ladies shooters Kim Blinman and Trudy O'Mahony utilised their practiced team work in order to prevail, and with the support of their centre court teammates, they lead the Ladies into a strong lead of 24-13 by the end of the first half of the game.

A stunning array of intercepts executed by Emily Durrington secured the strong lead of Pink Ladies, and GHS took the game with a solid score of 42-25.
