Darebin and WDNA cannot be split
IN A topsy turvy under 17s clash last week in M-League, Darebin and WDNA could not be split, drawing their clash 41 apiece.
Darebin got out to a fast start, and was double WDNA’s score at the first break.
WDNA was unable to eat into the deficit in the second quarter as both sides scored nine goals each for the term.
WDNA came out all guns blazing in the third term, winning the quarter by 10 goals to take a two goal lead into the last.
However, Darebin ultimately won the last quarter 11 goals to nine to draw proceedings.
Hudson Ebbage and Jamie Shannon both played well for Darebin, while an 11 goal effort in the third term from Nicholas O’Meara got WDNA back in the game, and Daniel King also played well for WDNA.
In the other Under 17s clash, it was St Therese who got the win over the Peninsula Waves.
The lead was a tight one to St Therese early, but it blitzed the Waves to win the second quarter comfortably and that is where things really got going.
The victors never looked back in the second half, and went on to win comfortably 64 to 50.
A 13 goal second quarter effort from Liam Mason really helped set up the win for St Therese, while Ryan Lovell also had a great game right across court.
Meanwhile for the Waves Christian Doukas and Zachary Vesovic both had strong games in the loss.
Meanwhile in the sole 14s clash of the evening, St Therese made it two from two with a win over WDNA.
St Therese had the early lead, but WDNA managed to half it by the time the major break had rolled around.
Unfortunately for the WDNA, St Therese won each of the next two quarters to ultimately earn a five goal win, 29 to 22.
Finn McLeod and Amelia Haxby both played well for St Therese, while WDNA managed to split the shooting duties fairly evenly between their shooters, including the likes of Thomas Lane.
