Adasha Nor­ton ex­e­cut­ed bril­liant­ly in the cir­cle to car­ry Fire Ser­vice to a 57-34 vic­to­ry over Bermudez in their Cham­pi­onship Di­vi­sion play­offs match in the Courts All Sec­tors Net­ball League on Thurs­day evening.

Play­ing at the East­ern Re­gion­al In­door Sports Are­na, the goal-shoot­er scored 52 goals from 65 at­tempts to help the un­beat­en Fire unit take clos­er aim at the ti­tle af­ter ad­vanc­ing to the fi­nal with the 23-goal vic­to­ry.

The fire of­fi­cers post­ed an ear­ly 20-4 first-quar­ter lead and sus­tained their pres­sure in the sec­ond quar­ter to lead 34-13 at the half. Nor­ton with goal-at­tack Pearl St John (4/7) do­ing well to feed her, kept up her ac­cu­ra­cy as Fire outscored Bermudez 13-10, to lead 47-23 at the start of the fi­nal quar­ter.

Fire Ser­vice was hop­ing to en­joy a fi­nal quar­ter stroll but Bermudez, which had slot­ted in In­dra An­der­son as the goal-at­tack re­plac­ing score­less Abi­gail Boswell (0/0) to part­ner with goal-shoot­er Make­da De­Fre­itas (27/35) nar­row­ly out-shot its op­po­nent, 11-10.

Fire Ser­vice al­so made a change in the cir­cle, sub­sti­tut­ing St John for Lee Ann O’Brien but she just net­ted one of her sev­en tries. How­ev­er, the change did not af­fect the out­come as the Fire unit earned the right to bat­tle for the crown next Sat­ur­day from 2.45 pm against Open Cam­pus.

Goal-shoot­er Shaniya Mor­gan was at the fore­front of the close win, net­ting 21 in 36 leav­ing UTC to rue giv­ing up the win af­ter lead­ing at the end of each quar­ter, 11-8 in the first, 21-17 at the half and 28-24 in the third.

For the los­ing side, goal-at­tack Lil­i­ah Matthews scored a match-high 22 of 36 and gained sup­port from goal-shoot­er Crys­tal Cock­burn with 11 from 20 but the Sparks was un­done 12-7 in the fourth and fi­nal pe­ri­od af­ter lead­ing through­out.

Akeila O’Neil was used in the goal-at­tack po­si­tion and she scored the oth­er two goals from as many tries but in a los­ing ef­fort. UTC will now face off against Bermudez for third place ahead of the fi­nal at 1.30 pm.

The league, which is in its 30th year of ex­is­tence, changes mode this week­end as it hosts its Fast 5 Fes­ti­val in each of the four di­vi­sions, which starts on Sat­ur­day and ends on Sun­day.
