Bombers take flight with strong wings

Euroa's Eliza Hoare toiled all game for the Magpies to be her side's best on court.

Kyabram's Jemma Osborne ignores the defence of Euroa's Jenna Raglus to find a team mate.

Kyabram's Holly Butler looks for a team mate as Euroa's Laura Emanuelli sees the lighter side on court.

Kyabram ripped right into Euroa from the opening centre pass as Holly Butler and Jemma Osborne starred in the wings at Memorial Oval.

Consistent delivery is seldom wasted when it heads into the goal circle of the reigning premier and Saturday was no exception as Elle Groves and Belinda Lees shot with superb accuracy.

Groves was a particular standout as she piled on 15 of Kyabram’s 22 goals in the first quarter alone.

Already 13 goals ahead at the first break, the Bombers were unstoppable against a young Euroa side as Eliza Hoare, 15, continues to be a brilliant find for the Magpies.

Deanne Tuppen again proved the home side’s leading goal-scorer in an entertaining duel with Lauren Pryde.

But Kyabram brought the same intensity from the first half into the second, scoring 40 goals in the last two quarters to brush past the Magpies, 70-41.

Tatura may not have secured the win against Shepparton Swans, but it stayed consistent right until the end of the match.

Unlike previous weeks where the Bulldogs have dropped off in the final quarter, they did not give up a huge buffer in the late stages of the match.

Nat Simpson and Shinea Sali were superb through the midcourt for the Swans as they made the jump on their opposition to be seven goals up at half-time.

But Tatura built in the third quarter as Roey Johnstone and Jacquie James starred for the Bulldogs, who won the third quarter by three goals before the Swans took back control of the match in the final term to win 37-31.

Shepparton cruised past Mansfield to bring up its seventh win as the evergreen Jacinta Todd led the way.

The Bears’ third quarters have been one of their strengths this season and Saturday was no exception, keeping the Eagles to just four goals.

Ella Sidebottom was another highlight in the attacking circle, although Amy Dixon-Rielly toiled hard in defence, assisted by Darcy Croxford-Demasi.

More than doubling Mansfield’s score to take the win 57-25, the Bears have secured seven wins on the trot after opening with losses against Shepparton United and Kyabram.

Echuca comfortably accounted for Seymour at Victoria Park to move into the top six at the expense of Euroa.

Erin Hill was yet again a strong presence for the Murray Bombers through centre as the home side finished nine goals in front.
