CALIVIL United stunned Bridgewater in Saturday’s fifth round of A-grade netball in the Bendigo Bank Loddon Valley Football Netball League.

The Superoos took the points, 57-48 and stretched the unbeaten run to five games.

Refreshed by the bye, the Eagles kept their unbeaten run rolling in a 36-32 victory.
