Eagles soar to impressive victory on Bridgewater’s court

MAIDEN Gully YCW Eagles soared to a season-best victory in Saturday’s seventh round of A-grade netball in the Bendigo Bank Loddon Valley Football Netball League season.

The Eagles dominated play at Bridgewater Bakehouse Oval to score a 28-goal victory.

A tally of 76 goals was Maiden Gully YCW’s best return since a 61-54 win against Marong at Marist College Oval in round three.

Just as impressive was the Eagles’ defensive play as they worked to restrict Bridgewater to 48 goals.

Mitiamo’s unbeaten run rolled on as it scored a 56-44 win against Pyramid Hill on the Superoos’ court at John Forbes Oval.

Calivil United was too strong for Inglewood at 5 Star Stockfeeds Oval in Calivil.

A red-hot Demons scored 69 goals in a 40-goal victory.

Marong took a rest in A-grade, but the Panthers did take on Bears Lagoon Serpentine in the lower grades at Discover Marong Park in Malone Park.

Newbridge had the bye.

Mitiamo 135 per cent, 28 points; Maiden Gully YCW Eagles 113, 20; Calivil United 110, 16; Bridgewater 107, 16; Pyramid Hill 113, 12; Marong 94, 8; Newbridge 75, 8; Inglewood 51, 4.
