Winning streak continues

SALE continued its winning run in Gippsland League netball when it defeated Traralgon 59-32 on Saturday.

Both Sale A grade and under 15 teams are undefeated after 10 rounds, with next Saturday’s A grade grand final rematch against the second-placed Leongatha shaping as match of the season.

Once again Sale got off to a flying start, leading by 15 at half-time.

Mel Johnston, Kate Eddy and Kasey McKay were solid in defence and in attack, Lara Dunkley and Ella Bertacchini continued their match winning form.

At midcourt, Lexi Joyce, Beth Goodsell and Tori Dessent all played an important role in the team work that has set up the Magpies’ 10 wins.

Montanna Holmes, who left for the Marist carnival in Bunbury, missed the match.

Traralgon were too good in B and C grade, and recorded four goal victories in competitive under 17 and under 13 matches.

MAFFRA kept in touch with the top five in A grade with a 15-goal victory over Moe.

The Eagles kept their spot in the B grade top five, despite going down to the sixth-placed Lions.

Maffra were too good in C grade, and also completed victory in the junior grades.

The under 17s was a tight contest, with the Eagles prevailing by six goals.

IN other A grade results, Morwell defeated Wonthaggi 55-37, Leongatha had a 66-41 win over Bairnsdale, and, on Sunday, Drouin defeated Warragul 57-18.
