The opening game of the Narrogin and Districts Netball Association A1 competition between Pingelly and Williams was played on Friday night and the Panthers started their season in outstanding fashion to run out 21-goal winners.

In an entertaining contest to start proceedings for the new season, the friendly rivals both fielded several new players.

New Pingelly sharpshooter Chelsea Mulchay had her eye in early as the Panthers came out firing.

Mulchay combined with the talented Leanne Watts to give Pingelly a 14-7 lead at quarter-time.

Despite the efforts of Williams defenders Tayla Battley and Emma Liddelow, the Panthers continued to score at will.

Midcourter Sarah Spanswick played strongly for Williams creating space and direction down the court, feeding nicely to Megan Hardie in the goals who battled hard against the Panthers’ Whitney Watkins.

A final shooter change for the Panthers where Abbey Munns swung from defence to goals, helped the home side run out 54-33 victors in the end.

Meanwhile, defending premiers Wagin played Cuballing in a tight contest from the start to finish on Saturday, living up to the pre-game anticipation.

Cuballing hung on for a four-goal win, 59-55. Taya Olman and Regina Kickett were superb for Cuballing, while Courtney Webb played a major role for Wagin.
