LOXTON North ended
Waikerie's season in
emphatic style during
Friday's Riverland A1
netball first semi-final.
In what was a close game for
most of the night, a big final
quarter from North saw it close
the match an 18-goal winner.
A high-scoring first quarter
saw North settle first, with
clean play setting up a three-
Hana Learhinan took control
of the goal circle, working well
with Jordy Jachmann, while
Marlee George found space to
pass to her shooters.
North's defence put Waikerie
under constant pressure, with
Ellie Thomas having a great
battle with Waikerie's Hannah
Trailing by nine goals at
half time, Waikerie made some
changes to try and reduce the
margin, but North adjusted
well and stopped any chance of
Thaliesha Fridd did well
when moved into goal defence,
combining well with Chloe
Fridd, while Gaby Taylor
stepped up in the second half.
Waikerie stemmed the flow
of North goals in the third
quarter, but North unleashed in
the final term, piling on 20 goals
to 11 to wrap up the game.
North will now play
Renmark in the preliminary
final this Friday.
Loxton moved into the grand
final with a convincing nine-
goal win over Renmark in the
second semi-final on Friday
The contest did not reach the
high standard of the meeting
between the two teams a week
Both teams started
nervously and the game went
goal for goal in the early stages.
Shooters Amber George and
Alysha Wehrmuller were the
difference between the teams,
with their high accuracy giving
Loxton a four-goal break at
Renmark had its chances
to close the gap, with strong
defence from Hannah Foody and
Sophie Croft, but their efforts
often went unrewarded.
With the gap still four goals
at half time, Loxton put its foot
down in the third quarter.
Sharona Edwards and Leah
Uren worked tirelessly in
defence for Loxton. Edwards in
particular was a driving force,
moving the ball back into attack
on a number of occasions.
The third term proved
Renmark's undoing, with
unforced errors and turnovers
in attack causing the margin to
blow out to 10 goals at the final
Both teams made changes in
the final quarter, with Renmark
increasing its intensity, but it
was unable to bridge the gap.
