The weather was ideal as the Deni Rovers took on Strathmerton at Memorial Park on Saturday.

The Roos had a successful day, nearly making it a clean sweep of wins.

In A grade, Rovers were victorious 65 to 57 over finals aspirant Strathmerton.

The Roos look set to secure a double chance in finals, needing to win at least two of their remaining four games.

It was another nailbiter for the Rovers in B grade, with the home side victorious by just one goal for the third time this season.

The win sees the Roos sitting on top of the ladder, with the final score line from the day being 50 to 49.

The Rovers secured an eight goal win in C grade in what was a must win game against the Dogs.

It was a slow start with the scores level at half time before the Roos went up another gear in the second half.

Mathilda Jacobs created many turnovers in defence while the attacking end read each other’s play beautifully which helped seal a 46 to 37 win over Strathy.

Awards went to Mathilda Jacobs (Globe Hotel), Jemma Flanagan (Coach House) and Vicki Beames (Reflections).

Rovers’ C reserve had a fantastic game taking a 21 goal win over the Dogs.

The whole team stepped up to work as one unit with tremendous pressure all over the court rewarded with turnovers.

Jade Meadowcroft shot beautifully while Jackie Schramm and Megan O’Connor were consistent in defence, with the Roos winning 44 to 23.

Awards went to Schramm (Coach House) and O’Connor (Motiv8).

In a battle of fifth versus sixth, the Under 17s Rovers were defeated by six goals.

The 42 to 36 loss sees them two wins behind the Dogs.

The Roos’ U15s keep getting better and better each week, recording a 30 goal win over Strathmerton.

The Rovers stepped onto the court ready to play and executed four strong quarters.

The defence over the whole court was brilliant with many turnovers resulting in goals from their accurate shooters.

Final score, Deni Rovers 45 to Strathmerton 15.

Awards went to Olivia Stubbings (Wired Entertainment), Abbey Wills (Total Bliss), Emma East (Reflections) and Edwina Barclay (McDonald’s).

The Rovers were dominant in the Under 13s with a massive 38-6 win over the Bulldogs.

Ellie Fishlock enjoyed the space of an extra court third this week and was able to stop the Strathmerton attack.

Ellie was also instrumental in driving the ball down the court and was awarded the Wired award for her efforts.

Eliza Bermingham put into play what the side have been practicing at training and received the canteen award.

Kate Chandler continues to improve and is now a force to be reckoned with, taking home the Smoko Shak award.
