Allan Hall proves a dominating force in Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand 17th Annual Netball Tournament.
After a successful result in 2016, the Allan Hall mixed netball team were back at the courts in Willoughby on August 20th 2017, to compete in the A grade division for the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand 17th Annual Netball Tournament.
After a bit of a shaky start to the competition, our team began to dominate – proving they were not just professionals when it came to accounting. After 5 round games, we had managed to win 3, pushing us through to the semi-finals. Sitting third on the ladder, we were up against the Macquarie team and we knew it was going to be stiff competition.
The buzzer sounded and we came out all guns blazing. It was an impressive and nail biting game to watch (just ask our fantastic support crew who were on the sidelines), with many intercepts and spectacular shots.
Having let Macquarie off to an early lead, following half-time we managed to claw back and when the final buzzer went off we knew it was close. So close that it was a draw.
Unfortunately this meant that Macquarie were able to progress through to the finals as they came in ahead of us on the ladder in the preliminary rounds.
Overall, the tournament was a fantastic day! There were definitely a few sore bodies walking the offices on Monday, but one thing can be assured – we will be back in 2018, so our competitors better watch out!
