Players returned to the court in the Katanning Netball Association last Saturday after a two-week break.

There were quite a few fill-ins for a number of senior teams and one side even came away with a win with only six players.

The juniors first game back after the school holidays will be this Saturday.

Throughout these holidays, there has been three teams training and forming together to play in the Great Southern Regional Championships in Albany next weekend.

They will be showcasing Katanning’s skills and playing against many teams from the lower half of the State.

KNA will send a 12-and-under team, 15-and-under team and an open division B side.

With seniors last Saturday they bared the chilly air and jumped straight back into it.

With a few rusty moments at the beginning of each game, the ladies all finally found their feet again.

In A and A-Reserve division last season’s grand finalists Kojonup 1 and Olympians 1 faced off and it was an excellent game with Kojonup 1 taking the win 42-35.

Cardinals Force downed Broomehill, 39-31, and Allstars 1 proved far too strong for Kia Ora, 75-42 while Dumbleyung 1 had the bye.

B-Grade had another change to the ladder with Allstars 2 blitzing Cardinals Phoenix 44-10.

Olympians 2 had a much better game against Tambellup Bluebirds but they fell short of victory as Tambellup won 30-23.

Kojonup 2 had a bye.

In C-Grade unfortunately one of the teams were so limited in players they had to forfeit.

But both teams had a scratch match with some extra people and got to at least have a run with the ball.

Kojonup 3 were amazing with their skill set and recorded a win with only six players.

It was a tough game but with proper mindset and determination Kojonup 3 won narrowly 45-43 against Dumbleyung 2.
