VU WRFL NETBALL RESULTS – RD 12
Point Cook Centrals Hammerhead Sharks almost scored an unlikely come-from-behind victory over Suns Blazers in the Victoria University WRFL Netball Division 2 competition on Friday night.
The Sharks were eight goals down at half-time and seven goals behind the Suns at three quarter time and looked down and out.
However, the Sharks came out from the three-quarter time break inspired, shooting eight goals to two to almost snatch victory, but ultimately couldn’t bridge the gap, losing 23-22 in what was a thrilling contest.
Suns defender Danielle D’Antonio and Sharks star Te Pono Aukaha were among the best on court.

An 11 goal to one second quarter was the catalyst for Lakers Blue win over Point Cook. Caroline Springs also had an equally impressive final quarter, shooting 12 goals and conceding just three goals.
