Jets impressive in netball semi-final



JETS blew away Toxic in impressive fashion last Friday to book a spot in Saturday's Curtis Coast Dolphins Netball Association first division grand final against Ice.

Jets were comfortable victors in last week's semi-final victory over Toxic (the scoreline could not be obtained by The Observer) at Dennis Park with shooters Louise Blowers and Jo-Anne Selff-Rauter in hot form.

Blowers reportedly shot about 90 per cent for the encounter, giving Jets a huge advantage despite a non-stop performance by Toxic defender Brittany Keen.

Toxic's chances were not helped by centre and key player Shayne Ford having to play with illness but it is doubtful even her renowned skills could have bridged the gap between the two teams.

Ice have been the form side of the competition but Jets will be confident they can match them when the teams take the court at 2.30pm on Saturday.

Both teams are believed to be gathering supporters to watch the clash with a carnival atmosphere expected.

In the junior A division decider, hot favourites Terrors will take on Stingrays after the latter defeated Bounce in Saturday's semi-final.

Although Terrors will be difficult to dislodge, Stingrays will take great heart from Saturday's victory against a Bounce side which was expected to be too strong for them.

Grand finals will be played at 1pm and 2.30pm on Saturday.
