Southern University Games Blog 1

The Deakin Dragons are competing at the Southern University Games this week. To kick off we have a student blog recapping Day 1 of competition. 


The netball team came to Adelaide ready to play. Both ones teams have come out really strong. The women's first game was against La Trobe and they had a convincing 19 point win. With the two Olivia's dominating Next up were the mixed 1s playing against AU 2s. A strong performance and some fancy footwork from Jack Carpenter got the mixed 2s up by 48.

Unfortunately both the mixed and women's 2s suffered defeat at the hands at the hands of some 1s teams. The women's 1 had another powerful display over ACU. Getting another win to end the day undefeated. The mixed 1s played a thrilling match against Latrobe 1s, our main competition in our pool. Going into the game we knew it was going to be a tough game. They prove us right by having a 6 points. However, the mighty dragons rallied and had a stirring comeback to win by three. At the end of the day both 1s team came out of the first day undefeated. While the 2s are both yet to get a win on the board.

Good luck Dragons! Keep on winning. Check back daily for more blog updates.
