An injury-hit Nagambie side fought hard but in the end couldn’t hold off Violet Town in an A-grade netball game on Saturday.

The Lakers went down 30-28, despite fielding a makeshift side.

An injury when being bucked off a horse forced new recruit Mallory Doyle out, then the defenders injury curse struck Keely Woosnam in the third quarter, forcing her off after also having played in the under-17 clash.

Youngsters Sarah Winter-Irving and Clancey Loughnane teamed up in goals and played well, with player-coach Caitlyn McPhee forced down the other end. Catherine Miller also stepped up after playing B-grade to help McPhee out in defence late in the contest.
