It was close, it didn’t quite go to plan, but in the end Seymour’s A-grade netball side had faith in what it was doing and it paid off.

The Lions began the 2014 GVNL season on a winning note, sneaking home 44-43 over Benalla at Kings Park in warm conditions on Saturday.

A win looked anything but likely by half-time, with an error-riddled Lions trailing 21-26 and a confident Saints seemingly on track.

But captain and acting coach Kath Knott had a simple plan for Seymour.

‘‘We talked about six goals being only three turnovers and we were confident going into the second half that all we had to do was get three turnovers,’’ she said.

‘‘It didn’t matter how long it took, that’s what we had to do.’’
