HAD a few more shots dropped for Panthers A in Saturday’s Bathurst Netball Association A grade grand final then it could have been a different story.
Bulldogs’ 43-31 success came on the back of a strong first half of shooting, while for Panthers A they couldn’t get any early rhythm.
Panthers coach Di Coombes said her team should hold their heads high after a strong season of netball.
“We knew it was going to be a tough game. They held in there but that was just unlucky. We can’t afford to give that sort of start to a team like Bulldogs in the grand final and expect to come back from it,” she said.
“We tried hard but it just didn’t come off on the day.
“We had a good year but the end result was disappointing.
“I though Claire Woolmington played well. Sarah Walsh, when she came on, played very well. They put in a great effort.
“We’ve just got to look forward to next year.”
