The Tequiras 1 have taken out the A-1 Division Karratha Netball Association grand final by the skin of their teeth after the Cougars 1 put up a tremendous fight last Saturday September 21.
The Tequiras entered the decider as hot favourites, having been undefeated all season, but the valiant Cougars team had all the answers as the teams finished deadlocked at the final whistle to take the game into overtime.

The Tequiras also showed the depth of their squad as the Tequiras 4 defeated the Tequiras 3 in B1- Division, while the Gems outpointed
the Cougars in B2.
Among the junior teams, the Sierras were victorious in U17s with Teanne Brown producing a dominating performance as the best player.
Brook Smith claimed the player of the match award in the U15s as the Tequiras 8 took home the title, while Tequiras 11 won the U13s and the Millars Well Marvels the U11 titles.
