IT’S lucky that Caitlyn Matthews knows how to handle pressure because the Collegians Mystified goal attack was certainly under pressure on Saturday afternoon.
Her side was locked in an epic Bathurst Netball Association A grade grand final against Panthers and with five minutes to go, they were on level terms.
But Matthews kept her nerve and shot well in the closing stages to help Collegians to a 42-38 win.
It meant that in a decider which featured quality performances all over the court, she got the nod as the best and fairest.
“It was a bloody good game,” she said. “You’ve just got to try and block everyone out and just hear the positives, not hear things being said by the other team and on the sideline.
“But I don’t go too bad with the pressure, it’s easy to just zone out.
“At the end there I didn’t know how long was left, it felt like the longest last quarter ever, but the girls keeping me positive made it really easy.
“It’s such a good team, everyone gets along so well and we just click really well together.”
