Dumbleyung Netball Club
Our Ducks held a brilliant training session the Wednesday prior to our Saturday game, preparing us very well for our big game against the 2017 Premiership Division 2 team Olympians 2. A new court strategy was also put into action and this paid dividends.
Olympians came out firing and our Ducks were up for this challenge. Short, sharp passing, strong leads and finding space on court, saw our Ducks dominate across all areas of the court and keep the pressure on our opposition.
Going into the second quarter, we were eight goals each. A low scoring first quarter for either side, showcases the pressure both teams were applying across the court. In an unfortunate collision, our premier Goal Attack Chloe McDougall had to go off court for the remainder of the quarter. While our Ducks kept up a great fight, the goals were just not going through that hoop!
The second half of the game was fought as a physical, competitive game with our Ducks keeping up the pace! The final quarter was a high scoring end to the game with 24 goals scored between each team. The final score was Olympians 2 (46) to Dumbleyung (30). However the score does not reflect how well each of our Ducks played! A game everyone should be proud of – well done Ducks! Best players for Dumbleyung included Amanda Gilfellon, Alison Peters and Clare Watts.
Round three, Saturday 19th May see Dumbleyung play Allstars 1 on Court 4 at the new time of 12pm. Go Ducks!

Kukerin Golf Club
Last Saturday afternoon (May 12) Kukerin Golf Club held the annual Browning trophy event a hidden partners stableford, with many thanks to the Browning family for sponsoring the day. Like normal Derek Stanton brought out a group of high class golfers from Lake Grace to add to the strong group.
To the golf and I think the heat got to the strong field or probably just a golf hangover from all the quality golf last week, with most players hitting below their best. It didn't stop everyone from having a very enjoyable day with plenty of rehydrating needed.
The winners of the day went to Karl West and Ian Faulkner with a combined total of 66 points taking home a great big meat pack each. Runners up Murray Stanton and Scott Gray were quite a way back on 58 points beating third place getters Ross Ditchburn and Eric Sebastian on a count back. The Browning trophy is awarded to the male and female with the best individual scores, Ian Faulkner came out on top with 35 points 4 clear of the rest and Jodie Ditchburn won for the women with 25 points. Congratulations to all the winners and again to the Browning family for sponsoring such a great day. Next week is the first qualifying round sponsored by the Kukerin Hotel.

Dumbleyung Hockey Club
Dumbleyung were on a roll by half time but the heat started to tire players in the second half and Wagin took advantage by reciprocating the score with 2 goals evening it up. The teams walked away with a draw which was a fair result considering the heat.
Better Players were Jake Angwin, Courtney Bairstow and Shane Hall.
This week’s game is in Narrogin on Saturday at 5.30pm against Warriors.
