Devils prove worth

Netball. Circular Head Devils returned from the Australian Masters Games silver medalists.

The netball events were hosted by Devon Netball Association in Spreyton late last month where Circular Head recorded five victories throughout the eight-game competition.

The local Devils featured players Kristen Johnson, Abbie Poke, Rhonda Odgers, Sharni Pearce, Jessie Eberhardt, Alice Nibbs, April Jackson, Jo Morgan-French, Kelli Lockett and Jenna Stretton.

Beginning the roster on Sunday October 22, the Devils met with Missmatch to record a seven goal victory, 30 to 23.

The side prevailed in game two for a win against Black Diamonds, 32 to 26.

Following two victories, Circular Head recorded a draw in game three against Victorious Secrets, 27 to 27, before the second game of the day allowed the Devils an opportunity to redeem themselves with a dominating match against West Coast Warriors, winning 57 goals to nine.

On day three, in the fifth encounter of the roster, Circular Head Devils met their match in Deloraine Devils. A competitive affair ensued as Circular Head fought relentlessly throughout the clash before the final whistle indicated a win to Deloraine, 35 to 28.

Meeting with the Princesses on day four, Circular Head looked to finish the rostered rounds with a victory.

Determination, teamwork and accurate execution paved the way for the 23 goal haul, winning 43 to 20 and securing a place in the finals.

As finals ensued that afternoon, Circular Head once again met with the Princesses. Continuing their dominance, the Devils conquered the Princesses with a 35 to 20 goal victory to send the side to the Grand Final.

Held on Thursday October 26, Circular Head endured a nervous wait watching six divisions earn bronze medals before they finally met with arch rivals Deloraine Devils in the premiership encounter.

Suffering a seven goal defeat at the hands of Deloraine Devils on day three, Circular Head was determined to come to an alternative outcome and fought to the final minute to avoid the 30 to 18 goal loss.

With an aim to show local junior players what is possible when hard work and dedication is applied, a silver medal for Circular Head has proven that.
