Myrtleford ends season in style with big win over lowly Bulldogs
MYRTLEFORD’S home and away netball season has ended in style with wins against Wodonga across all senior grades on the weekend.
The A grade girls chalked up their fourth win for the season, their best result since 2014, with a commanding 55-34 victory.
They shot 17 goals to six in the second term to blow Wodonga out of the water after a relatively even opening stanza.
Eden Broz was on fire with 47 goals from 59 attempts, continuing her sensational second half of the season after she started the year in B grade.
Broz’s older sister Saige was also again a standout with a dominant display in the midcourt.
Youngster Grace McKerral, who has been asked to fill several different positions in her debut A grade season also played a starring role for the Saints from wing attack.
In B grade, Myrtleford will march into their qualifying final in good form after a 71-30 rout of the winless Bulldogs.
Star player and perhaps the key to their premiership hopes, Rebecca Piazza, was on song with 59 goals from 70 attempts while Sally Botter also played well.
It was much tighter in the C grade contest with an inaccurate Myrtleford hanging on to a three-goal win.
The Saints were deserving winners given they had 28 more shots than their opponents, but the Bulldogs did well to fight back.
At under 16 level Myrtl- eford started well to lead 1211 at quarter time but went down 41-32.
Eadie Pfahlert was again the team’s best.
B grade’s qualifying final match against Wangaratta Magpies will be played at Lavington Sportsground on Saturday starting at 4.30pm.
