It’s been a fast and frenetic start to the revamped DOOLEYS Metro League, which has been taking place at Netball Central every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday for the past three weeks.
The league, made up of six divisions of 10 teams, has been producing top class action with the sides from divisions 3 and 4 taking to the courts on Mondays, divisions 5 and 6 in action on Tuesdays, and divisions 1 and 2 teams rounding out the activity on Thursdays.
Ku-ring-gai and Eastwood Ryde have been setting the pace so far in division 1, with both teams unbeaten having won three from three. However, it’s not such good news for last year’s premiers City of Sydney, who are yet to register a win.
In division 2, Eastwood Ryde’s second team aren’t able to replicate the success of their first team, bringing up the foot of the table after failing to register a single win from three outings so far. Like division 1, it’s two teams who are out in front with Randwick and Illawarra District both three from three so far this year.
Ku-ring-gai’s second team have been matching their division 1 side game for game over the first three weeks of competition in division 3 and are second on the ladder – only on for and against – behind Bankstown City. Both sides are on six points after going three from three, with Camden & District in hot pursuit on five points.
It’s a tighter affair in division 4 with only St George District winning all of their three games so far, however, there is a chasing pack of five teams behind them, lead by Liverpool City, all of whom have won two and lost one so far.
Inner Western Suburbs, Hills District and Campbelltown District – who are each three from three – are setting the pace in division 5, with Blacktown City rounding out the top four, while Blue Mountains are out in front in division six with Mount Druitt their nearest challengers.
