Ohhh... that winning feeling
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.
