Lismore Daleys 37 defeated Ballina RSL 21
Clarence Coast 49 defeated Grafton DEX 22
Casino Tatts 43 defeated Byron 2481 42
Round 4 saw a very closely contested game between Casino Tatts and Byron 2481.
The final quarter was a goal-for-goal contest with players from both teams rising to the challenge.
Casino captain Leah Bennett gave full credit to the Byron players.
“We really had to fight for every possession. It was the consistency of our shooter Deidre Coe, best on court for our team, which made the difference,” Bennett said.
Byron’s coach Jo O’Connor believes her team is now a force to be reckoned with.
“We have finally got our combinations working well for the full 60 minutes and I am very pleased with this result,” O’Connor said
With a home game in Ballina, RSL were down four at half-time to Lismore Daleys.
Ballina coach Maureen Clarke said: “It was the third quarter where we came undone.
“Lismore are an experienced side with good netball sense.
“We can certainly learn from this experience.”
The local derby between Clarence Coast and Grafton DEX saw Coast had a convincing win.
Clarence Coast coach Nerida Donges said: “We went out to an early lead in the first quarter and never looked back but we recognise that Grafton were without some key players due to injury and illness and will be a big threat in the next clash with their full contingency of players.”
Next Saturday round 5 Lismore Daleys will host Byron 2481 with a start 2pm. Grafton DEX will host Ballina RSL with a 2.30pm start and Casino Tatts will host Clarence Coast start time 3pm.
