Shooting Stars continued their strong start to the Wagga Netball season with a 55-45 win over CSU Reddies on Saturday.

The Stars and CSU Reddies game started evenly with both teams trading goal for goal before the Stars pulled ahead to win the contest.

The Stars centre court consisting of Hayley Stevens, Lucy McIntyre and Maddie Browning were a great combination taking it in turns to feed Brooke Harpley and Erin Brown, who were providing them with good front options and swishing goals from everywhere in the circle.

CSU Reddies defenders Brittany Fair and Grace Smith worked hard to try and prevent the scoreline from increasing.

Reddies centre court Melanie Vidler and Rachel Kirk fed their shooters Hannah Williams and Bonnie Keys consistently but the Stars defenders Maddi McIntrye and Bridie Delahunty proved too good helping the Stars achieve a 10 goal win.

Meantime, Uranquinty enjoyed a whopping 82-16 win over Bushsows.

Uranquinty’s shooters Lana Duffy, Jordan Barrett and Hannah Finemore shot well despite the attempts of the Bushsows defenders Megan Kaye and Sarah White.

Uranquinty centre court Racheal Grant, Meg Reinhold and Matilda Vearing worked the ball well down the court even with the tireless attempts of Bushsows Ellie Cusack, Lily McCelland and Kali Notaras.

Uranqunity’s defenders Georgia Tilyard and Grace Cornell proved too good for Bushsows shooters Sophie Kingston and Elise Dore helping to keep goals to a minimum to secure the 66-goal victory.

In the final game of A grade, New Kids Aces led at every change and defeated Turvey Park 43-34 at Wagga Netball Centre.

Experienced Aces shooters Naomi Hocker and Ashleigh Reynoldson rarely missed and made the most of their opportunities.

Rachel Addison, with assistance from debutantes Rebecca Salmon and Ella Fellows, provided excellent ball movement through the centre for the Aces.

Turvey Parks debutante Pheobe Wadley played well in the centre court along with Sharon Forwood and Amanda Gooden.

Kate Bell, making her A grade debut at goal defence and goal keeper, limited Turvey’s shooters Morgan Watts and Leila Wadley’s opportunities at goal to help secure a nine goal victory.

In next week's round of A grade Wagga netball, Turvey Park take on the well drilled Uranquinty, New Kids Aces come up against the young Shooting Stars team and there will be the battle of the university teams; CSU Reddies and Bushsows.
