Marlborough Lines Stadium 2000 was a hive of activity on Saturday as the climax of the club netball season was played out.
Nine finals were contested leading into the premier showdown, which was followed by Marlborough Netball’s annual prizegiving.
The action in the lower grade finals was fast and furious, with boisterous fans shouting encouragement to their favourites.
The grade one title was won by Harlequins Woodbourne Tavern, who had featured in two promotion/relegation games earlier in the season. They were too strong for their opponents on Saturday, Marlborough Girls’ College Robinson Construction, who dominated from the outset to prevail 45-18.
Quins’ goal shoot Naomi Fowler landed 39 goals from 37 attempts while fellow shooter Cathy Kitto shot 16 from 21. Mandy O’Malley was prominent on defence.
For MGC, Fiaalii Solomona and Lahana Dempster stood out.
The Harlequins, Pelorus and Tokomaru clubs each claimed two finals wins.
