Mooroopna played out a thrilling draw with Eaglehawk in round six of the Regional Super League on Sunday to retain its hold on top of the ladder.
After a four-week break from competition, the A-grade women showed no signs of a lack of match practice, heading into half-time with a three-goal lead.
But an inspired fightback from the visitors saw five goals go past Mooroopna’s keeper in the second half.
Mooroopna coach Alison Ritchie said she was not unhappy with the result after such a long time between games.
‘‘After having so many weeks off, we would like to have a win, it’s a little bit disappointing, but to be scoring five goals in a game, we will almost always take that,’’ Ritchie said.
‘‘In the first half we had most of the possession, we obviously dropped away a bit in the second half, so we’ve still got plenty to work on.
‘‘But it was really good for the girls to have a hit-out and get some form back.
‘‘It’s pretty much like the start of the season again, we’re making sure we get our fitness back and working on playing well as a team.’’
Alicia Cornelius was outstanding with two goals, while Lyn Berry put in a commanding performance.
Narelle Robertson, Ellen Forster and Nikita Elliott also managed a goal each.
‘‘There was just some really good running by our high forwards, we were doing our basics well and competed nicely against the key Eaglehawk players,’’ Ritchie said.
Mooroopna will head to Bendigo on Sunday to take on Sandhurst.
‘‘We haven’t had to play at Bendigo yet, but we seem to adapt well when we go over there, so it will be a good challenge,’’ Ritchie said.
