Lock def Tumby Bay 39-35

LOCK took out their first win of the season after putting in four quarters of consistent netball.

As the game started, so did the rain, with players quickly adjusting to the wet court as the ball moved quickly down the court.

Lock's Sophie Kraehe played strong at centre, backing up her team-mates at every opportunity while Tumby Bay wing attack Jenna Campbell fed her goalies with accurate passes.

Scores were Lock 13 to Tumby Bay 7 at quarter time.

In the second quarter both teams remained unchanged.

Tumby Bay defenders Vanderlans and Schlink made Lock goalies work hard for every ball, and both Hurrell and Heath for Lock were shooting well.

Lock defenders were putting in the hard work.

Goal defence Hannah Zerk kept close as Tumby's goal attack Blaise Baldissera moved well in the ring.

Zerk was taking some great intercepts in the centre third. Lock led 23-14 at half time.

Tumby Bay took control of the third quarter tightening up their defensive pressure all over the court.

Schlink and Cave continued to turn the ball over and on most occasions Tumby scored off these turnovers.

Lock goal keeper Lisa Boot continued to defend well and Lock led 30-25 at three-quarter time.

The last quarter was evenly played with Lock goalies putting up nine goals to Tumby's 10.

Lock wing attack Haylee Pearce, who was playing a great game, went down, hurting her ankle.

Lock brought on a young player from E grade, Mikala Baines, into centre, who fit in well with the team.

It was a great performance from both teams as they continued to fight hard for every ball.
