Colac netballers claim another big scalp

Tigers co-coach Georgie Finn fights the rain.

Colac netball co-coach Georgie Finn says the weekend’s scalping of fourth-placed St Albans is a sign of what’s to come.

The Tigers sit just half a game outside GFNL finals and Finn said being on the winning end of a few close games, and Saturday’s 13-goal triumph over fourth-placed St Albans demonstrated the side’s growth.

The Tigers trailed by two goals at quarter time, but put their foot on the pedal after the first change to lead at every other break, finishing with 15-goal last quarter.

The Supersaints were without towering goal shooter Tharjini Sivalingam, but Finn said the convincing win against last year’s grand finalist gave the Tigers confidence in the ability of their squad.

“They didn’t have Tharjini, but it just goes to show what they are without her,” Finn said.

“It was a really good game, I think we played really well, obviously with the weather it slowed things down a bit but I guess that worked in our favour because we were a lot steadier and a lot more in control.

“In our attacking end, we gelled a lot more and it was evident in how we were able to convert on the scoreboard.
