NAVARRE senior netballers have flown the flag in their round ten clash against Newstead in the Maryborough Castlemaine District Netball League.

A grade notched up another win in their so far successful season with a final score of 62- 34.

It was a very physical contest for Navarre, who were forced to fight in order to pull off the victory.

Meaghan Armstrong received the D&K Harrington glass and the J&K Peacock $20 for her mid court drive and feeding into the ring, while Taylor Mason received the Subway voucher for yet another great effort in defence.

B grade were also impressive winners defeating Newstead 44-15.

It was a strong start that gave them confidence and put Newstead on the back foot.

Navarre continued to extend their lead in the second half to come away with a good team win.

Trish Martin received the J&K Peacock $20 and the D&K Harrington glass for her accuracy and feeding skills in the ring, while Amy Kindred received the Subway voucher for her many intercepts and rebounds in defence.

C grade had a nailbiting game, being down one or two goals for most of the game.

In the last quarter they managed to break Newstead's centre and were able to come away with a one goal win over Newstead, 37-36.

Navarre were missing several players, with Ebony Summers and Georgia McDermott stepping up and helping out.

Bek Seeary received the D & K Harrington glass and the Sneek A Peek voucher, for her holding and shooting skills, along with Caitlyn Baird receiving the Subway voucher for her accuracy and movement in the ring.

Under 17s set the pace right from the start of the game, to finish with an impressive win 34-13.

Georgia McDermott was very accurate under the attacking ring while Monique Stephens received the Gold Reef voucher for her determination, and Harriet Slorach received the Subway voucher.

Under 15s had a close game all the way to the end after being 18 all at three quarter time.

Unfortunately Newstead had a stronger fourth quarter putting them up by two goals to finish 21-23.

Tyra Dowsett received the Gold Reef voucher for her hard work in wing, while Madi Bibby received the Subway award for her work in goal keeper.

The under 13s were down a few players leaving only six players on the court.

Navarre had a rough start to the game, but by the fourth quarter they were trying their hardest to claw themselves back into the contest.

It wasn't enough as Navarre lost 12-27.
