GLIMPSES of brilliance were displayed on court last weekend by Leeton-Whitton’s A grade side.
While they went down 57-32 to Collingullie-Glenfield Park, the Crows pushed the Demons in the first half to be right in the match.
However, their intensity and concentration started to fall away following the main break, according to co-coach Libby Gillespie.
“They played really well in that first half … we had great connections throughout the three thirds of the court and our intensity was brilliant,” she said.
“We just weren’t able to do the same again in the second half.
“We didn’t convert our goals when we needed to, especially when they were off turnovers.
“That’s something we’re working on, as well as keeping that intensity and concentration happening throughout the four quarters.”
A reserve also went down on the weekend to the Demons, but with three players out injured, Gillespie wasn’t too fazed by the loss.
“A reserve are a very good chance of not just making the finals, but also the grand final again,” she said.
“We’re gelling very well.”
The majority of Leeton-Whitton’s netball sides will play their weekend matches against Narrandera on Thursday night to compensate for many players being unavailable on Saturday due to the state age carnival in Sydney.
These games will be held at the Leeton Indoor Stadium.
