B Grade satisfies hunger for win
B GRADE Mansfield 52 d. Benalla 37
Best on Court: (sponsored by Davon’s Hair) Steph Ward Coach’s Award: (sponsored by Café Forty One) Rose Hood
THE B Grade team took the court on Saturday with the focus of starting the first quarter with intensity.
And it was brilliant, the defenders had the wall under way for centre passes and our goaler rotations were working along with our timing being very precise.
This allowed us at quarter time to have a 17-9 lead.
Second quarter was again strong despite the weather conditions deteriorating.
The Saints had some positional changes in the third and a lull in Eagles’ intensity saw them go 5 goals with no answer from us.
However, we fought back and still managed a 12-11 quarter.
The last quarter was much stronger and settled from the Eagles keeping the Saints to just eight while we finished with 11 goals.
Sarah and Leonie controlled the mid-court calmly for us every week and Saturday was no different.
They are continually offering and it is very clear just how important they are in our success while our attacking end grows in understanding of each other.
A great game all round girls, proud of your discipline in not playing into the attitude of the opposition and hunger for the win this week, it showed and we came out on top.
Just letting the score board speak for itself, 52-38 and playing our own game.
Good win girls - well fought.
Thank you again to our kind sponsors for our awards each week.
