MITIAMO gained a psychological edge as it beat Bridgewater in Saturday’s 10th round of the Loddon Valley Football Netball League’s A-grade netball competition.
The clash between the ladder-leading Superoos and second-placed Bridgewater was the highlight of the competition’s 10th round.

The third-placed Calivil United was made to work hard by Marong.
Although the win-loss tally was 6-2 to 2-5 in Calivil’s favour, it was the Panthers who showed a lot of poise and skill on the Raywood court.
By the final whistle, Calivil United led 54-45.
The Maiden Gully YCW Eagles passed the 50-goal mark in their 30-goal win against Bears Lagoon Serpentine.
The Eagles won 51-21.
Newbridge marked its fifth victory of the season as the Maroons marked the trek to Pyramid Hill with a 40-27 result.
