Jets may have skills to reach netball finals



THE JETS have been one of the powerhouses of the Curtis Coast Dolphins A grade netball premiership since it first started. They have qualified for the finals every season and this year is no different.

Jets currently sit fourth on the ladder and even though they face an elimination semifinal first-up they are confident of making the decider again.

Six of the seven Jets girls were part of the Curtis Coast open representative team which contested last weekend's country carnival and have lots of experience.

Defenders Leisa Lowe and Darlene Ferguson are amongst the best around and have the ability to shut down the league's top shooters.

Jets' centre-court trio, Hetty Cochrane, Joanne Self and Kristel Cochrane have been in superb form with their passing a feature.

At the pointy end of the court, shooters Louise Blowers and Nola Thomas more often than not convert their share of chances.

In more Curtis Coast news, the league's open team finished fifth in division two at the Country Carnival.

The Dolphins won three of their seven games, a top effort considering it was the first time they played together this season.

It was a tougher story for the Dolphins under-14 team who played in division two.

They won just one of their five games, but considering they regularly play in division three, just being competitive is a fantastic effort.
