Ohhh... that win­ning feel­ing

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

Trafal­gar won the Mid Gipp­s­land Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion’s A grade premier­ship with a three-goal win over Mor­well East on Satur­day. The win broke a 15-year premier­ship drought for the Bloods. The last A grade premier­ship was won in 2002. The Bloods have had se­nior suc­cess at a D grade level in the past 15 years – win­ning the D grade flag in 2014. They also won three ju­nior pre­mier­ships in that time. The A grade team fin­ished the sea­son in third place. A three­goal win over Mor­well East in the qual­i­fy­ing fi­nal and four-goal win over New­bor­ough in the sec­ond semi-fi­nal saw them gain a grand fi­nal berth. The Bloods held strong in the fi­nal, with cap­tain Me­gan Han­cock rais­ing the premier­ship cup af­ter a closely con­tested game, 40-37. Cen­tre Cassie Mal­ady was awarded best on court. Trafal­gar started grand fi­nal day in style, win­ning the 15 and un­der premier­ship with a 44-37 win over Mirboo North. How­ever, the club was un­able to claim its third win of the day as D grade lost 3133 against New­bor­ough.
