Broadford netballers break drought

Broadford netballers had much to celebrate with a win in all grades against Lancefield on Saturday highlighted by A Grade taking its first victory in two seasons.

With one of the youngest A Grade sides in the competition Kate Berger, Jacqui Warrine and Carina Mills dominated in the 58-25 win.

Broadford coach Ashley Chapman said it was great to see all of the hard work pay off.

“Hopefully this puts in their mind that they can win. Finally seeing that result and experiencing what it feels like to win, it will create a desire to want to win – this is the start of the thought process,” he said.

“We’re backing the youngsters and 99 per cent of the players are local and sticking by us. It’s been a win from all of that hard work and hard training.”

Lancefield coach Meaghan Keogh said it was another hard week for the girls on the scoreboard.

“Across the board their netball is improving but it’s just a matter of stringing together all the little moments of greatness,” she said.

Broadford’s B Grade won 44-26 and C Grade 46-3.

Wallan almost doubled Woodend’s total 49-26 with Chloe Meulenmeesters once again controlling the ring with 39 goals.

Romsey defeated Melton 66-37 and Rockbank lost to Diggers Rest 32-47.
