The Yarrawonga netballers have scored one of their best days this O&M season recording 3 wins from 4 games against the usually strong Myrtleford teams.STEPHEN HICKS May 6, 2014 3:15pm
The day started well for the Pigeons when the Under 16s scored an 11 goal win.
The Pigeons were superb in the first term and led by 10 goals but eased up in the second term. Coach Bridget Cassar gave them a rev at the main break and the players responded well.
Better players for the day were Airlie Runnalls, Emma McQueen and Abbey Hemphill. The Under 16 boasted 5 players who still have another 2 years at this level and shows the up and coming talent within the club.
In C Grade, with a number of players away, Kate Robilliard and Emma McQueen stepped up from Under 16s and played well in goals.
Kelsey O’Bryan and Tegan McKeown were miserly in defence and Kirsten Leary played with excellent leadership and poise.
In the end, the Pigeons lost by 2 goals but can take plenty of positive from the game.
The B Grade side started very slowly, but perseverance won the day and one they got on top the Pigeons scored a great 9 goal victory.
Lauren Mulquiney and Alisha O’Dwyer combined well in the goals again, while Alice Wensor was almost impassable at Wing Defence.
The win was made more stoic as the Myrtleford team boasted a number of players with A Grade experience.
The A Grade team bounced back from their defeat last week, to score a 29 goal victory against the perennial finalists Myrtleford.

Annalise Grinter and Kylie Leslie were fierce in the defensive goals. Whilst in attack Bridget Cassar has regained her shooting confidence coupled with the team’s good midcourt speed and agility.
