Falcons soar into second spot after win over Yaralla Eagles



THE YARALLA Falcons have climbed into second spot on the Gladstone Netball A grade ladder after an impressive 31-24 win over Yaralla Eagles at Memorial Park on Tuesday night.

An injury to shooter Lindy Taylor hurt the Eagles big time, with Falcons chalking up a crucial victory.

Carly Cooke dominated in the centre for Falcons, while Angela Mills in defence was a commanding presence.

For Eagles, the ever-consistent Kym Hetherington again was a good player and Andrea Moran also played well.

In the other match of the round, Valley Stars extended their unbeaten streak to 13 games with a 46-34 win against Yaralla Owls.

Both sides put on a fantastic exhibition of netball in what was an entertaining game.

The young Owls certainly could be proud of their performance against the Stars who have swept all before them this season. Sam Dippel and Keisha Street led the Owls charge, while the Stars were wellserved by shooters Natalie Hamilton and Vicki Shannon.

Michelle Jones was another sensational performer for the Stars who meet Falcons in the match of the round next week.
