Loxton turns the GF tables
After going down to
Renmark by one goal in last
year's grand final, Loxton A1
netballers turned the tables this
year, claiming the trophy with
a 13-goal victory at Renmark
Stadium on Friday night.
Loxton A1 coach Ali Uren said it
was "a good win" and a "combined
team effort" which saw them get
over the line.
"Every player on the court played
well... Renmark came back within
only two or three goals in the third
quarter and we still managed to settle
down and come away with a decent
size win in the end," she said.
Loxton's Eve Will won the best on
court award after a terrific match at
"She had an awesome game. She
has been playing in grand finals for
a long time now, she is very experi-
enced and that shows," Uren said.
Renmark had a good start to the
match, but tried passing over the top
of Loxton's defenders too often.
Goalies Amy Martinson and Sonja
Modlinski were forced to shoot from
At the other endAlysha Wehrmuller
was on target and combining well
with Amber George.
An abundance of early errors saw
Loxton take control to lead by five
goals at the first break.
Loxton's powerful midcourt play-
ers Hollie Bullock, Jackie Dahlitz
and Eve Will set up play well.
The trio worked hard defensively
and then easily converted to attack
once in possession.
Loxton's patient passing saw it
move 11 goals clear at half time
and the reigning premier looked in
Renmark coach Ann Noack
swapped goal attack Modlinski with
wing attack Reeni Leuders and the
move paid immediate dividends.
Hannah Foody, Sophie Croft and
Elyse Steed worked hard to force
turnovers in the third quarter, while
Kerri Turk turned the tables on
Dahlitz at centre as Renmark got
within four goals.
Despite all of its hard work,
Renmark was unable to stop Loxton
pushing the margin back out to seven
at the final change.
The final quarter saw Loxton edge
further away as coach Ali Uren took
the opportunity to give bench player
Skye Beauchamp some game time.
Loxton's systematic play and ter-
rific teamwork helped it to victory,
along with strong performances from
Will, Edwards and Wehrmuller, with
the latter hardly missing a shot.
Croft rebounded well and set up
play for four quarters, while Turk fed
the circle well and Leuders played
one of her best games for Renmark.
