Strathmerton kept persisting in miserable conditions to take the win in the last quarter.

There was fantastic defensive pressure all over the court and great goaling by Britt, who stepped up in Kyley’s absence.

Awards: Rach Olson (Wingates) and Kasey Baker (Railway Hotel).

B-grade

Despite the conditions, Strathmerton managed to come away with a good win.

There was great defensive pressure all over the court with lots of hands over the ball and tips here and there. Players just need to ensure they are switched on at all times and backing each other up when there are tips.

Awards: Corinne Lancaster (Strathy Cafe) and Karen Duckworth (KAFS Fruit Supply).
