A fantastic team game at Myrtleford saw A Grade capitalise on many turnovers whileplaying with determination and patience.
An outstanding display of great sportsmanship in what turned out to be a rather physical and at times vocal game.
Every team player is eligible for an award this week - the ‘Worksafe Award’ - with the team taking home the prized trophy.
Kiara McLean (Susan Hines award) played a perfect captain’s game. She was level headed, led by example and settled the team and controlled the pace.
Cath Svarc (Club 1) and Best on Court – Worksafe Award - had another outstanding game. She was dominant from one end of the court to the other.
Stephanie Clancy (Club 2) was great in defence. She worked tirelessly all day, found the ground a few times but resilience had her bounce up to fight for the next ball.
Erica Hanrahan (Origin Clothing) also played a great game in defence. She hassled from the first whistle to the last and was great at defensive breaks and pickoffs around the wing.
Georgie Schulz (Ladies Committee award) found form again this week.
She maintained composure, implemented the game plan and made space in the ring.
