Euroa playing coach Laura Emanuelli looks for options.

Euroa has taken its opportunity to jump into the top six with a 13-goal victory against Echuca.

Both sides were fighting for a spot in the top half of the ladder, but the Magpies continually edged ahead of Saturday’s opposition.

But in the final term Laura Emanuelli’s side surged ahead to turn an eight-goal lead at three-quarter-time into a 13-goal winning margin.

Euroa’s best-on-court was yet again Deanne Tuppen as opposition players struggle to contend with her height and positioning, although Erin Hill and Dearnah Kent tried hard for Echuca.

Seymour has been improving in spades from the start of the season and received just reward for its efforts with a five-goal win at home against Rochester.

The Tigers entered the match on the back of a strong performance against Tatura, but the Lions turned a half-time lead into just their second win of the season.

Shepparton Swans were unable to keep up with Kyabram, but Jana Bruinier’s side still put up a fight against the Goulburn Valley League’s benchmark.

The Swans goaled 37 times in the match, making them one of just three sides able to score that heavily against the reining premiers.

But Belinda Lees’ charges had already created a buffer of nine goals at the end of the opening term as Elle Groves and Heidi Morris were superb.

In the final match of the round Tatura more than doubled Mansfield’s score in its first win since round three, with Emma Ryan, Maddie Davis and Molly Boyle leading the way for the Bulldogs.
