Kathy Wainui playing for Brigadiers, gives Rata A a lesson in determination. Southland Netball.....1971......
It is 1971 and the Rata lost their place at the top of the table when they drew with Brigadiers in netball, Invercargill.
This was the upset of the day as Brigadiers were near the bottom and they also lost goal attack, Lesley Hayes. Goal shoot, Jackie Miller struggled without the support in the circle until wing attack, Annabelle Blue moved into shoot.
Brigadiers defences; June Murphy and Bessie Brooking read the game well and kept the Rata shooters on their toes. Lee Wainui, wing defence, was always available to take any intercept back to her forwards.
Centre Kathy Wainui was determined, taking the ball well through the court and pressuring the Rata attack.
Lesley Hayes and Jackie Miller combined well, until the latter was injured and Hayes had to work the circle herself, until half time.
Rata were a bit stunned at the Brigadiers play. Robyn Broughton was the driving force behind Rata's attack with well timed passes to find shoots, Wendy Clark and Kathy Philpott. Val Lithgow at centre linked well to bring the attack and defence together.
Defences, Cherryl Earle and Lynley Hale guarded the circle expertly, with Hale gathering in a lot of rebounds.

Collegiate v Southland Girls High School
Collegiate beat Southland Girls High School, 29-17, but did not have everything their way. Collegiate had experienced players in the likes of Lynley Hale, Margaret Anderson and Marian Hay with the High School team playing without three of their regular players.
At half time High School were only 1 down, but Collegiate's shoots, Hay and Wilson were not challenged after half time.
