Myrtleford Times - - Sports -

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.
