“Spectators and supporters witnessed a first-class game of netball with both teams displaying great skill and sportsmanship.

“The final score of Ballina RSL 35 and Lismore Daleys 31 reflects the closeness of the game and that every scoring opportunity had to be converted.”

In the minor semi-final, Clarence Coast defeated Casino Tatts 47-35 in a match that Clarence Coast coach Terri Collingburn described as ‘a ripper of a game’.
