It has been tough going for the Nagambie A-grade netball side this season, but a few things finally came together on Saturday.

The Lakers disposed of reigning premiers Rushworth 49-38 in a game it had control of from the start.

A win became more certain when player-coach Caitlyn McPhee shifted from defence to provide some height in attack. Brilliantly fed by player-of-the-day Clancey Loughnane at goal attack, that proved the turning point. Keely Woosnam came into goal defence and teamed well with Bianca Deane.

McPhee was also full of praise for Cassandra Abbott, who stepped up from B-grade to play the second half at wing defence and ‘‘dominated’’. McPhee was also well aware where the game was won.
