A combination of Canungra and Tamborine Mountain players won the Grand Final in the  Hinterland District Netball Association’s  13 years Division C grade.

The Tamborine Mountain Pterodactyls finished their season on top, winning the grand final 20-12 against top ranking team, Tallebudgera Tornadoes.

Coach Nicky Carr said the first quarter was the players’ best quarter, however they played exceptionally well through the game.  

“What they did better in this game was controlled their emotions,” she said.

“They had played the Tornadoes earlier in the season and hadn’t beaten them until the Grand Final.  They played amazingly, they were all incredible.”

This was the first year the girls had played together as a team, with two players, Amber Stephenson and Sienna Simpson, new to the Tamborine Mountain Netball Club this season.

Four of Tamborine’s seven eligible teams made the Grand Finals.

“For a small club that is huge – some of the other clubs have a lot of kids and teams so we were really happy to have so many in the final,” said Nicky.

Team Manager Kelly-Joe Uccetta said Nicky put a lot of work into training during the season, offering an extra training day and working closely with the players to improve their game.
