A-grade Bloods still undefeated

Elly Stewart takes a shot on goal.

 Olinda Ferny Creek hosted Beaconsfield in Arctic conditions at the Olinda Recreation Reserve for Round 15 of Outer East Premier Division Netball.

After a heavy dumping of snow overnight followed by another sprinkling at 8.30am on Saturday morning (10 August) it was unclear if play would go ahead.

But thanks to the hard work of volunteers Mick Hill and Ross Seymour, the court was made up to match standard for the start of play.

Full credit went to all the players, umpires and supports staff who ploughed through the day in such cold conditions and still produced outstanding netball.

Beaconsfield won the three contests of the day with strong performances in D-grade (34 to 20), C-grade (29 to 20) and B-grade (50 to 42).

Olinda Ferny Creek then took honours in the A-grade top-of-the-table clash by seven goals (43 to 36).

This week Olinda Ferny Creek will host Berwick at Olinda Recreation Reserve in hopefully more hospitable conditions.

The action starts with the 17 and under from 10.30am on Saturday 17 August.
