Moama’s win far from best

April 09, 2018

Members of the premiership team unveil the flag for their 2017 premiership.

A DAY all clubs look forward to.

The unfurling of the premiership flag.

And to celebrate — Moama did what Moama do best, notching up a 56 goal victory over Nathalia.

Coach Jacqui James said it was the perfect result.

‘‘It’s a really special day for our club with the unfurling of the flag,’’ she said.

‘‘It was a great moment for the club so we were really happy to be able to deliver a great win on the day.’’

Despite the big win, James said her team could only get better.

‘‘This isn’t close to the best game I have seen this group play if I’m honest,’’ James said.

‘‘There were a lot of things that we did on the day that we wouldn’t normally do. It’s not so much a case of making mistakes with our play, it was just doing things that aren’t part of what we would normally do.

‘‘We did things like throwing the ball over three channels or trying to make big bomb shots into the ring.

‘‘We were lucky that the game still finished up in the way it did.

‘‘I think it shows that even when we have a good win like we did, there are still a lot of areas of our game that we need to continue to work on as the season goes on, if we want to continue to be the best side in the competition.’’

While James had her reservations about some of her team’s tactics, she said it in no way detracted from her team’s performance.

‘‘We only had six of our regular A grade players available due to illness and injury, which is a massive loss for any side.

‘‘It’s a credit to the girls who stepped up to play A grade that they took their opportunities while in the side. All of our girls played really well and I’m very happy with the result. It was a great win in terms of what we produced on the scoreboard.

‘‘It’s just a case of identifying ways that we are able to get better in our games and continue to improve so that we get to be in this position again.

‘‘Another area we need to work on is not going to the easy option when we are moving the ball around the court.

‘‘When we get to later stages of the season those easy options won’t be so easy to find, so I think we can continue to look at that and make our side more dynamic in those areas.’’
