A netball coup for Gormandale

SECOND-placed Gormandale has become the first side since last season to topple the North Gippsland netball premier Churchill.

The Tigers defeated the Cougars 48-38.

Heyfield maintained its slender hold on fifth position with a comfortable 57-11 victory over Boisdale-Briagolong.

Cowwarr and Glengarry contested an epic battle, with the Magpies holding on in the dying stages to win by four.

Third-placed Woodside continues to demonstrate why it will be a threat for the premiership, having little trouble against Sale City.

On Sunday, Traralgon-Tyers United kept its finals chances in check with victory over their higher-placed opponent Rosedale, 37-33.
