    MCC netball makes its debut

    Aug 23, 2011

    A new chapter in MCC club sport commenced last night when the inaugural MCC women’s netball teams took to the court in their first formal competition representing the club.

    In what may be a forerunner to a permanent addition to our sporting ranks, the club was representated in the Parkville Netball Association at the State Netball Hockey Centre which is one of, if not the most competitive association in Victoria.

    Three MCC teams played throughout the evening with all 24 ladies looking stylish in their uniforms of MCC colours - red, white and blue.

    In Division A1, MCC 1 had a very hard fought victory, coming from four goals down at half time to win the match by eight goals, 40 to 32! MCC 2 were extremely competitive throughout their game, however just fell away towards the end to go down by 15 goals. Finally MCC 3 were outrun by the more experienced “Pink Bibs” losing by 32 goals.

    For teams that had never played together before, this was a fantastic result. All the girls should be extremely proud of their efforts, especially those who were playing for the first time! That said, there is definitely room for improvement which is sure to be the focus of the next training session.

    Well done, girls and best of luck next week.
