BRIGHT remains firmly entrenched in the Ovens and King A grade netball top six after holding on to defeat Goorambat by one goal in a thrilling encounter on Saturday.

The Mountain Maids rebounded from a disappointing blowout loss to reigning premiers King Valley two weeks ago to record their fourth win of the campaign 35-34.

Bright jumped out of the blocks dominating the first quarter to lead 15-7 but the home side stormed back into contention on the back of a big second term from Brittany Button and Kylie Relf.

Bright’s advantage was cut to a goal at the main break and the difference stayed at one after a 12-all third period.

“Goorambat was one or two spots below us so we knew it was going to be a close game,” Kidd said.
