WHILE a win is a win, coach of Bright’s A grade, Kelli Jacobsen, is rueing a last quarter slip-up from her side that almost cost the Mountain Maids victory against King Valley.
After leading comfortably at each of the breaks, Bright survived a late charge from the Roos, who mounted a 14-goal haul in the final quarter, compared to Bright’s eight, with the final scores 39-36.
“We were up by 10 goals at the three breaks, but to have went down by six in that last quarter is a bit disappointing,” Jacobsen said.
“It’s great that we won though.”
Meanwhile, at the Friendlies Reserve, Greta affirmed its reigning premier status, taking control for the remainder of the match, bringing the final score in favor of the Blues, 49-32.
Tarrawingee rebounded from its round seven loss with a comfortable 25-goal victory over Bonnie Doon, with youngster Kaylee Seymour bagging 27 goals in the Dogs’ win.
Moyhu comfortably surpassed Tatong, 41-14, while North Wangaratta dealt another blow to Glenrowan, winning 83-22, and Milawa continued its unbeaten run with a 61-28 victory over Goorambat.
