Dumbleyung Netball Club
In what was nearly a forfeited game by Katanning team, Fusion, our Dumbleyung Ducks were able to play their last game of the season with a last minute timeslot reschedule. We also recruited two new recruits in Adele and Ebony Smith who both played fantastically in their first senior netball game. Adele and Ebony spent much of their primary school years watching Mum Elspeth play netball and it was wonderful to see them playing along side their Mum!
The game was quite intense with Fusion needing to win this game to make it to the finals and they put great pressure on our Ducks across the whole court. With accurate goal scoring Fusion got away early. Our defence and centre court players were kept on their toes and with some fantastic intercepts were able to work the ball down to our goal end.
Our supports were in force on the weekend, cheering on our Ducks throughout the game and although our girls played one of their best games this season the final score did not go our way. Fusion were victorious in the end 44 to our 21 and thus our final game for the season.
Our Ducks celebrated the end of season back at the Dumbleyung Club with drinks and dinner. Thank you to Carly and Clare for organising our get together and to Tanya Kirk for keeping our thirst quenched and for the scrumptious buffet dinner.
And finally well done to our Ducks for pursuing the season they have. Playing in the Division 1/2 grade presented many challenges and while it didn’t show on the scorecard how well we all played, feel proud knowing you have all stepped up to the challenge this year. Thank you to Janelle for coaching our team in your inaugural year as coach. It was a tough year but well done on a stellar effort. Thank you to all of our supporters throughout our season on and off the court and to fellow readers of the Quack Chat, we hope you have enjoyed our Netball Club updates.
Our awards presentation will take place at the Annual Winter Sports Windup to be held at the Dumbleyung Hall, Friday 16 September. Tickets are on sale now. If you require more information please contact the Dumbleyung CRC.

Gross was won by the ever reliable Eric Gossage with an 85. The women were out in force, Ladies winner was T Bartram 73nett. Runner-up Cheryl Snell, who commented that she didn't get to sleep after the big win in the Holden Scramble on Sunday until after 12 that night, with a best score for a long time and no windies, with a 74nettt; and it was great to see Karen Ward back, winning the gross for the day. The rain fell and 1 lady, no names mentioned but her hair is sort of redish and curly and the youngest, decided to retire to watch the Football? or whatever, but give her credit we did see her back for the BBQ. Novelties were won by Marc, Karen, Jamie, Howie, Eric. The putting competition saw Jamie Dare winning with 25putts - no wonder he played so well.
The coming Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 will see the 1st & 2nd Elimination Finals being played. Please do not be late. The winners will go on to play on Sunday - times to be decided after Saturday's play. The B Grade will be a straight final on Saturday 10 September with Lee Smith playing Bob Hannah.
The draw for the A Grade is below.
