Meres charge ahead windy conditions
HEATHMERE lives to fight another week in the South West District Netball League competition after a 41-34 victory against Dartmoor in tough winter conditions on Sunday.
The Meres have proven they are strong finals contenders after battling the wet and windy conditions to overcome the Giants in Sunday’s elimination final.
Heathmere’s ability to capitalise on their defensive turnovers and rebounds helped them secure the win with each possession proving crucial through the middle quarters.
It was a tight first quarter with both sides struggling to adapt to the conditions early with the first goal coming from Dartmoor after multiple turnovers through the midcourt.
The Giants powered ahead to score strongly early before the Meres bought themselves back in the fight and pushed out to a one-goal lead at the opening break.
