Northern Outlook : June 4th 2014
32 NORTHERN OUTLOOK, JUNE 4, 2014 Under-17s work on combinations By MAT KERMEEN CANTERBURY COUNTRY under-17 netball team played their first tournament of the season at the Bishopdale YMCA on Sunday and Monday. The warm-up tournament was the first in a series of four that will ultimately lead to the national under-17 championships in North Harbour, which will be contested in the second week of the next school holidays. Canterbury Country had a first- up loss to Christchurch on Sunday morning, before registering its first win against Invercargill in the afternoon. A hefty loss to Dunedin was balanced by the fact that the match was closer than the margin by which Dunedin defeated Christchurch. The team’s afternoon games resulted in a win over South Canterbury and a close loss to Mid Canterbury. Coach Lisa Armstrong said the focus was on working on combinations, rather than results, in the first few warmup tournaments. Canterbury Country play another warm-up this week in South Canterbury. SHARPSHOOTER: Goal shoot Bella James about to add another goal for Country. GOAL SCORER: Goal attack Claudia Lewis lines up a shot against Mid-Canterbury.
