A-grade netball side thumps Longwood.
Avenel has kept its A-grade netball finals chances well and truly alive with a percentage-boosting 78-12 win over Longwood.
The win keeps the Swans two points out of the six with one game and a bye remaining. It needs to beat fourth-placed Stanhope on Saturday and probably rely on other results going its way after Nagambie upset Tallygaroopna at the weekend.
Sarah Moran stepped up after playing for B-grade and did well at the attack end. Shooter Jacinta Jamison and midcourter kara Clydesdale won the awards.
With Longwood not fielding any age-group sides there were just two other games on Saturday.
B-grade thumped the Redlegs 69-11 to keep second spot. Avenel should seal second if it can beat fifth-placed Stanhope on Saturday.
Donna McDonald and Issy Tilson won the awards for the Swans.
C-grade has qualified for the finals and is likely to finish fifth or sixth after a 69-2 win on Saturday.
Defender Hannah Goodwin was best on court with shooter Nicole Lynch’s experience telling as well.
