Lak­ers wash out Hop­pers

Seymour Telegraph - - SPORT - By Lewis Fis­cher

Nagam­bie has made it 10 straight af­ter a con­vinc­ing 16-goal win over Murchi­son-Toolamba.

An­other tough top-four clash could have un­set­tled the Lak­ers but a strong per­for­mance from the girls in red, white and black saw them over the line.

Murchi­son-Toolamba, who has re­cruited well to re­ju­ve­nate its list in the off-sea­son, kept in touch with the Lak­ers and man­aged to avoid a blowout.

Nagam­bie had to work hard to re­strict the Hop­pers as they man­aged to hit the score­board fairly con­sis­tently.

The Lak­ers had to dig deep to build their lead grad­u­ally over the match and even­tu­ally ran out 53-37 win­ners.

The match will have proved worth­while for the Lak­ers who are look­ing to en­sure their squad is wa­ter­tight be­fore com­ing up against league-leader Avenel in two weeks.

The Lak­ers will go into their bye round in sec­ond place be­hind Avenel.

The Swans beat Nagam­bie in round one, and are the only team to re­main un­de­feated, but have had to deal with ma­jor in­jury blows since their league open­ing fix­ture.

Nagam­bie will be look­ing to bet­ter its score­line against its ri­vals, who’ve re­cruited both in­ter­nally and ex­ter­nally to fill any po­ten­tial leaks in their list.

In the lower grades, B-grade lost to Murchi­son-Toolamba 33-39, while C-grade were easy win­ners with a 34-20 vic­tory.

The un­der-17s put on a dom­i­nant per­for­mance to win 55-11 over Murchi­son-Toolamba and the un­der-15 side was a 35-22 win­ner.
