Finches and Opals' undefeated streak continues

NETBALL: The Finches' stellar run continued on Saturday with a further win to remain undefeated.

The competition's day got under way with some skills development for the junior ranks.

"As well as our youngest players having a great time at Net Set Go we had five games of Netball played on Saturday in Round 4,” Stanthorpe Netball Association's Kay Knight said. "In the intermediate division the Finches remain undefeated for the season but had a tight game against the Lyrebirds.

"Other wins in the intermediate division went to the Doves and the Hummingbirds.

"In our senior competition the Opals are undefeated so far this season but had a close call against an almost full strength Garnets, with the scores locked up at 5-all at half time.

"It could have been anyone's game but the Opals prevailed in the end.

"In the other senior game the Sapphires had a comfortable win against an understrength Diamonds.”

Hummingbirds d Robins 19-16
