Last week was National Volunteers Week, and Blighty wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who helps out when they can, no matter how big or small.

Every little bit makes the day run so smoothly. Thanks again.

Thank you to Rennie for a great day of netball, the sun was shining which made it all that much better.

A grade: Blighty 32 def by Rennie 41

Blighty started very strong and controlled to be close at quarter time.

Unfortunately the second quarter saw Rennie get ahead with Blighty unable to make back the difference.

The second half was even with more accurate shooting and defence combining to increase pressure and cause multiple intercepts.

Awards: Felicity Jefferies, Christina Kingi and Abbey Colman.

B grade: Blighty 30 def by Rennie 44

Juniors Maddie Weir and Jasmyn McKenzie, and uni girls Taylor Wilksinson and Gabby Clarke filled in superbly for the Redeyes. They all put in 100 per cent.

The attack end gelled well, pulling together some great play, just did not result in conversions. A win is coming.

Awards: Tayla Kirby, Lillie Harford and Gabby Clarke.

C grade: Blighty 9 def by Rennie 56

The Redeyes kept fighting regardless of the score, their short stature doesn't discourage their heart.

Awards: Stacey Doolan, Meg Caruso, Krystle Winter and Tiah Macdonald.

Under 17s: Blighty 7 def by Rennie 68

Again this week Blighty had a lot of outs, and again had to ask a lot from the Under 15s.

They tried their best all game, but Rennie’s under 17s were very impressive and dominated the whole game.

To Blighty’s credit the side never gave up, but the Rennie girls were clear winners.

Awards: Gemma Macdonald and Maddie Weir.

Under 15s: Blighty 11 def by Rennie 37

The U15s Redeyes had a tough day against quality opposition Rennie.

Strong drive in attack worked well to convert defence turnovers all game with incredible work ethic all down the court.

Awards: Dakota McKenzie, Nevaeh Webb, Ava Richards, Lucy Dudley.

Under 13s: Blighty 6 def by Rennie 29

The Blighty under 13's played an awesome game.

Every week the side is building on its skills and getting more and more turn overs.

Kyah Watson, played down both ends of the court and did a fantastic job going from one end to the other.

Catie Micheals was patient throughout the game with her passes, making sure they were hard and in-front on the player.

Under 11s

The Redeyes played great despite playing against such a tall team.

Thank you to the girls that filled in for Rennie.

Awards: Sophie Pearn, Lucy Pisasale, Shelby Huckin and Amelia Armytage.
