Holding court

BOOKENDS: Defender Bridget Flint-Chapman (left) helped Myrtleford’s A grade side record their second win of the season, while shooter Grace McKerral (right) performed well for Myrtleford’s 16 and under side.

MYRTLEFORD had its best day on the netball courts for 2015 capturing wins in all four grades for the first time this season.

The perfect record against Corowa Rutherglen couldn’t have come on a better day with the club holding their Pink Ladies Day event in support of Breast Cancer awareness on Saturday afternoon.

After three earlier wins the A grade girls topped off the day by pulling off the most impressive victory, beating the sixth placed Roos to claim their second win, 54-51.

Down by eight goals at halftime the Saints worked their way back thanks to a massive third quarter in which they drained 18 goals while holding the Roos to just 12.

With the deficit cut to just two goals Tara Monshing and Saige Broz stepped up in the midcourt and continued their strong second halves to help their team take the lead.

After gaining the advantage early in the final term, errors looked like they might cost the home side but they steadied and with Bec Piazza and Emma Botter not missing anything in goals they held on for a three goal win.
