THE Army women's Aussie rules team
scored a convincing win against Navy in
the women's division final of the Kapooka
12s Triservice championships at ARTC on
In the major men's division final, a young,
fit ADFA side proved too fast and skilled for
the ARTC team, which fought hard to win its
place in the final and come away runner up.
The minor men's division final was played
out between two Navy teams, with HMAS
Cerberus 1 defeating HMAS Albatross in a
fiercely contested match.
About 300 players, officials, administra-
tors and spectators across 14 teams turned up
for the Kapooka 12s competition.
Soldiers also performed well in side com-
petitions, with ARTC's Lt Alisha Hewett win-
ning the women's longest kick competition
and ARTC PTI Cpl James De Bono taking out
the sprint race.

CANBERRA'S netballers set out to
defend their titles in the Kapooka 7s
where ADFA successfully held off
10FSB in the women's final, but the
ACT team fell narrowly behind NSW
in the mixed final.
The NSW mixed team was ACT's
main rival from the start of the compe-
tition held from March 12-13, gliding
unbeaten through the preliminary match-
es to take on the ACT in the finals.
The game between NSW and ACT
went goal for goal in the first half, with
the teams going into the second half tied
Both sides showed no signs of giving
up through the second half and at full
time the scores were 13-all.
With the game going into extra time
of two three-minute ends, neither team
wanted to give up any ground and the
scores were still tied after the first three
minutes. It was only in the final three
minutes that NSW capitalised on a few
turnovers to take the lead.
NSW skipper Sgt Wade Phillips,
who was injured in the first game and
coached from the bench for the rest of
the day, said the centre court was fierce
in the final minutes of the game.
ACT was pressing hard but the NSW
defenders made some crucial intercepts
and put the ball in the hands of their shoot-
ers, who extended their lead to two goals
before the end of extra time to win 17-15.
"We did a great job for a scratched-
together NSW combined side," he said.
"All of our players paid their own regis-
tration to play today, so it was worth it to
come away with the win."
In the women's competition, 10FSB's
netballers showed they were willing to
go the extra mile, having travelled all the
way from Townsville for the event.
Working their way up the ladder in
back-to-back games throughout the day,
injuries reduced the 10FSB side to six
for the women's final against defending
The north Queensland netballers
started the game well, holding a three-
goal lead for most of the first half, but
ADFA managed to steal the goals back
to go into half time with the scores tied.
With fresh legs and an extra play-
er on the court, ADFA's lead increased
through the second half. The 10FSB
players refused to give up throughout,
going down fighting 24-17 at the final
ADFA nets victory
Tough game: WO2 Megan Webber, 10FSB, passes the ball as ADFA's Midn Clare White defends in
the Kapooka 7s women's netball final.

Think quick: Army footballers fight to keep
the ball out of Air Force hands during the
