Clean sweep in Western Junior League for Bathurst Goldminers under 18 girls

THEY were not at full strength, but the Goldminers under 18 girls still managed a clean sweep in the second round of the Western Junior League competition.

Goldminers teams from under 12s through to under 18s took to courts in Orange and Bathurst on the weekend, facing rivals from Griffith, Orange, West Wyalong, Leeton, Young and Dubbo.

There were good performances across all age groups. The under 18 Blue men’s side and Keiran Purvis’ under 18 girls extender their unbeaten run, while the under 16 Blue boys retained first place on the ladder.

“We won three from three this weekend, so we are undefeated so far. We had a couple of injuries and people out because state camp is on, so we still did quite well,” Purvis said.

“We were actually meant to have five games, but a team pulled out at the last minute and we dropped back to three games. That was quite nice and made the weekend a little easier.

“We out-skill a lot of sides, so a lot of teams turn to physicality, but we held our own.”
