MOE made it two from two in Gippsland League netball with a dominant 67-36 win at Maffra on Saturday.

Lions star Taylin Gourley was in devastating form, scoring 47 goals with sister Ramayer named best-on-court.

Georgia Moody also played a fine game for the impressive Moe outfit, combining wonderfully in attack with sharpshooter Gourley to put the game beyond doubt.

Maffra was best-served by Jasmine Schellen, while Emma Allman and Paige Biddle worked hard in a losing cause.

Sale scored a hard-fought 49-39 win in Bairnsdale.

The Magpies had goal shooter Jennifer Wrigglesworth to thank for taking the points.

Wrigglesworth displayed fine form, scoring 26 goals.

Goal defence Kasey Dessent played a pivotal role for Sale, thwarting a number of Bairnsdale attacks.

It was the first win of the season for the Magpies, who opened the 2021 campaign with a five-goal loss to Maffra.

The loss was the second in as many outings for the Redlegs, although the form of Paris Dunkley was a feature of Bairnsdale's performance.

In other games, Warragul defeated Drouin 44-25 at Drouin to stay in top spot.

The Gulls seized control early doors and made it two wins from as many outings in good fashion.

Despite losing the match, Karina Proctor in attack for Drouin was a highlight.

In Sunday's other match, Leongatha extended its unbeaten start with a 60-44 win against Wonthaggi Power.

Parrots ace Jessica Edgar was in fine form, scoring a game-high 40 goals in a best-on-court display.

Jade Cashin was another in the thick of the action for Leongatha and Hannah Flanders also impressed.

Chelsea Bowman (26 goals) and Ellie Bates worked hard in a losing Power cause.

Morwell and Traralgon will meet this Saturday night to complete the second round.
