NT News: Districts Storm Home
Story by Jess Webster
Northern Districts stormed into second place on the Darwin Netball Association ladder with an inspiring 15-goal win over defending premier Pints at Marrara on Thursday night. Districts extended its lead at every change and outscored Pints by 9 goals in the last to win 47-32.
After starting strongly, Districts let Pints pick up easy goals the end of the first and second quarters and led by just three at half-time.
Their persistence in the second half paid off and some excellent defence, with quick ball movement and innovative feeding in the circle, enabled Districts to finish off with a strong last quarter.
Goal-attack Katrina Sliders and defender Marissa Chaplin were superb while shooter Peta Whelan was Pints’ best performer.
