Bar Flies Scoop the QLS Netball Pool
QLS Netball Comp – 21 July 2023
The Bar Flies (new team name courtesy of McMeekin KC) competed in, and won, the second QLS netball competition on 21 July 2023.
A win in all 3 round games had us first in our Pool. First win was against Shand Taylor Lawyers, 15-6. Then Kelly Lawyers went down 18-3. Third game we thrashed Colin Bigger & Paisley 17-2.
A very close Semi final win (15-14) against Straight Outta Compo (Littles Lawyers) had the Bar Flies straight through to the grand final.
Fortunately no other team was a match for us and we took away the honours against No Touching! 16-3.
Rookie award goes to Alex White for his height and those springs under his feet. Grand final MVP to Mags.
Another Gold Medal Performance – 6 August 2023
The Bar Flies finished the 2023 netball season undefeated after taking out the trophy in the first annual tri-series against UQ students and solicitors.
Once again starting at 9am on a Sunday morning to take advantage of the students still waking up, we smashed them 31-18, our awesome defence keeping the students scoreless in the last quarter, despite one sprained ankle early in the day.
The solicitors having also beaten the students, we met them in the final. The rain threatened at one stage to stifle our efforts, but thankfully eased and at half time we were up 17-16. The second half went more our way, with the final score 24-20.
In the words of one seasoned team member, “Who would have thought the Bar netball team would go through a season undefeated. If only the soccer and cricket teams could emulate us. I can’t think of another undefeated team since St George in 1959.”
Soccer and cricket, lift your games!
