Echuca’s Caitlyn Strachan co-captained the Victorian Fury to victory in the Australian Netball League grand final on Sunday.
The back-to-back premiers win against Queensland Fusion, 51-49 at Waverley Netball Centre was the clubs 23rd consecutive triumph following two unbeaten seasons.
Despite having earned themselves an 11 goal buffer by the main change, the Fury withstood an animated late surge from the visitors who almost deprived the Victorian side of their fifth ANL title.
The Fury vice-captain and former Echuca United netballer said the nail-biting grand final win was entirely a, ‘‘whole team performance’’.
‘‘It was nice to go through the whole season undefeated,’’ Strachan said.
‘‘It’s a good environment at Fury and such a great bunch of girls.
‘‘Every team is tough and we are all just happy to grab that win.’’
