A grade

In what has been one of the best ri­val­ries the Ovens and Mur­ray has ever wit­nessed, two fierce teams in Yar­ra­wonga and Lav­ing­ton went toe to toe yet again, in another thrilling game of high qual­ity net­ball on Satur­day.

The Pan­thers be­gan the game the bet­ter, catch­ing the Pi­geons off guard with a 6 goal lead at quar­ter time.

But in typ­i­cal Pi­geon fash­ion, the girls fought back strongly, as they be­gan to cap­i­talise on re­bounds and ground balls.

Lau­ren Mulquiney and Caitlin O’Dwyer were in­stru­men­tal in the Pi­geon resur­gence, as their will to work hard all over the court was ev­i­dent.

The fourth term was a thriller, as the crowd was at its peak and the game was at full throt­tle.

Even­tu­ally the girls were just beaten by the fi­nal whis­tle, as they went down by the nar­row­est of mar­gins, 1 goal.

The Pi­geon girls will be out to bounce back, as they have one fi­nal op­por­tu­nity to gain re­demp­tion on Lav­ing­ton this week.

But first they must get over the North Al­bury hur­dle, who they face in this week’s pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal.
