Nagambie's Sarah O'Sullivan looks to send her side forward.

It paid to be a visiting team in round 11 of the Kyabram District Netball League with all but one side winning away from home.

The weekend’s action brought about some thrashings, high scores and a record-breaking result.

Tallygaroopna travelled to Ardmona on Saturday and Julie Telford’s team, fresh off the bye, made light work of Ardmona, winning 91-23.

Telford was upbeat in describing a near perfect team performance, in which her side scored the most goals in a single game this season.

‘‘It is hard to single anyone out, we just moved the ball well, intercepted and took our chances really well,’’ Telford said.

‘‘If our shooters did miss, which was on a rare occasion, they would generally win their own rebound.’’

The Redlegs scored more than 20 goals in each of the four quarters as Telford was eyeing off a percentage-boosting victory.

‘‘We just like to go out and have fun, enjoy ourselves and hopefully by doing that the result takes care of itself.

‘‘We are thereabouts this season and so big wins are crucial if you’re stuck on the same points as another team at the end of the year.’’

Bec Humphrey was in sensational shooting form for the Redlegs, while Bree Giles returned from her fourth pregnancy.

‘‘Bree has been training for a little while now so I thought I would give her a run this week and next week to see how she goes,’’ Telford said.

‘‘We are up against Longwood next week and we will be going out to play our game and hopefully everything goes to plan.’’

Meanwhile, reigning premier Avenel pushed aside Girgarre, winning 63-27, while Nagambie doubled Lancaster’s score to win 70-33.

Sarah O’Sullivan was instrumental in the Lakers’ win, while shooters Bianca Willis and Sharni Lloyd were dominant going forward.

Violet Town made it two wins on the trot after defeating Longwood 54-29, while Undera snapped a four-game losing streak to defeat Merrigum at the Lions’ den 46-32.

In the round’s final clash, Stanhope defeated 10th-placed Rushworth by 25 goals, 48-23.
