Britney Fitzpatrick and Shaley Mackay, who had earlier helped keep their C grade side’s perfect record intact by limiting Benalla to just one goal in the second half, saw game time in two quarters.
Bright’s B grade remained only percentage outside the top six after upsetting Be- nalla in a surprise result.

Jedda McIntosh was named best on court with 21 goals while Marnie Witts played her usual strong game in the midcourt.
B Reserve enjoyed a comfortable 47-22 win led by Nat Kelly and Tamneka Mackay, while Jess Carnes scored 28 goals.
In C grade, Bright outscored Benalla 26-1 after halftime after a massive early scare that saw them only three goals up at the main break against an opposition they should of had few troubles getting passed.
And in a rematch of last year’s under 15 grand final Bright came out on top, maintaining premiership favouritism with a 30-16 result.
Hettie Hurst finished with 23 from 30 shots.
