Goldhill defend KO crown

2017-09-26 06:00

Goldhill Netball Club successfully defended their knockout title by beating Weltervrede 33-24 at the Westridge Sports Complex on Saturday. The Super A league final brought the curtain down on the season for the Mitchell’s Plain Netball Union, which played host to the different age groups and senior finals on the day. It was the youthful team of Weltervrede that nearly caused an upset with their enterprising play that had Goldhill against the ropes for the first two quarters of the game. “Welties” were faster out of the blocks and used their 16-year-old goal shooter, Renisha Daniels, to good effect.

In the goal area, Daniels proved a handful for her more experienced opponent, Jill Dickenson, as she pounced on everything that came her way.

Her height and positional play allowed her to score 19 goals during the game and she is definitely one to keep an eye on in future.

She was well supported by her wing attack Janine Meyer, who worked her socks off to supply her with quality service in the scoring areas. Goldhill struggled to get going, uncharacteristically losing numerous balls in attack and rushed in defence by Welties. The green machine laboured through the first two quarters of the game but managed to draw level (14-14) at the end of the second quarter through Renske Burg, who claimed the Player of the Match award with 24 goals. Burg has been in good form throughout the season and Goldhill have her to thank for the victory. She combined well with the evergreen Celestine Damons who sparked the comeback for her team. Damons took control of the game and used long balls from the middle of the park to reach Burg in the goal area. They took advantage of Weltervrede, who seemed to run out of steam in the final quarter, and used their experience as a team to run down the clock by slowing down the game. Not the best of victories for manager Pamela Johnson and her team, who also missed out on the league title to Kansas City, but the win will go along way for the green machine, who have proven to be the queens of the knockout competition for the second consecutive season.
