SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 4 2021 WEATHER 55 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA would go but it all came together and the girls brought DEFENSIVE prowess saw Tracy Village Falcons earn their place in the Darwin Netball Premier League grand final following their 36-25 win over Pints. The Falcons, who have topped the table all season, were eager to bounce back after their loss to Waratahs in the major semi-final. And they did it in style against reigning premiers Pints to recover their position as a potential title winner. Ivana Schober and Georgia Luhrs were standouts on the defensive end, applying plenty of pressure and winning ball on the rebound. And on the shooting end, Jordan Anderson and Mikaela Sawyer continued their consistent form from the regular season. Coach Sharon Freeman was proud of her sides efforts, particularly on the defensive end. I was happy with the win we were unsure of how we their game, Freeman said. They were keen to bounce back after the loss in the semifinal and they really showed what they can do. Our full-court defensive pressure was really strong on the night. And our defenders did a great job in turning over the ball to set up opportunities for our shooters. In the grand final they will meet a tough Waratahs contingent who defeated them in the semi-final. But this will be a difficult encounter for both sides, with wins shared between the two sides. Theyre all pretty pumped and ready to get into this grand final, Freeman said. Weve been top all year and everyone is keen to get there again after missing out last year. We just have to work on our plays and make sure we bring the same intensity that worked for us against Pints. Falcons flying due to strong defence Falcons Ivana Schober.

Traffic snarls. Hurricane Ida. Record rainfall and flash flooding. Submerged cars. Destroyed homes. Fourteen dead New Yorkers. Everpresent Covid protocols. The US Open might not be the Hunger Games but its getting close. Ive always been quite a calm person, Australian Ash Barty said after knocking over Danish teenager and Daria Gavrilova-lookalike Clara Tauson 6-1, 7-5 inside a deserted Arthur Ashe Stadium on Friday to move into round three. Shell need to be calmer than ever, calmer than the Dalai Lama, to win a third major title. The US Open is a madcap event at the best of times and this year, its even more so as one state of emergency is piled on top of another in NYC. There are 1200odd daily Covid cases on top of the disastrous weather. An ability to keep ones head will serve Barty rather well at Flushing Meadows. The world No.1 is considering returning home to Australia after the Open. She may be back in Queensland before the end of the month. The WTA has been unable to confirm the Tour Finals will be staged later this year and so suddenly theres limited reason for Barty to continue her six-month world tour. She misses home, always, and the time is approaching when she needs to make a call. If she adds the US Open to her stirring dreams-really-do-come-true Wimbledon triumph, she may justifiably consider her work done for the year. Bloody good, was how she described her victory over Tauson. Closing out the match became an unwanted adventure as her calmness went too far and became passivity. But she came good in the end to roll nicely into round three, potentially four wins away from the final everybody wants. A showdown between Barty and Naomi Osaka would be the biggest for Australian sport since Ariarne Titmus went eyeball-to-eyeball with Americas Katie Ledecky in the Olympic pool. Barty and Osaka first played at Acapulco in 2014, as teenagers, and Barty won in straight sets. Four years passed without a rematch because Barty was hitting cover drives in the nets with Brisbanes WBBL team. At the 2018 Australian Open, Osaka won in straight sets. At Nottingham that same year, Barty won in straight sets. At Beijing in 2019, Osaka sneaked through in three sets to level their head-tohead at two-all. Despite becoming the dominant forces in womens tennis since then, with Osaka claiming four slam titles and Barty two, they havent traded blows for two years.
