MDFL - Tatyoon has remained in touch with the Mininera and District Netball Association top five following a hard fought win over Wickliffe/Lake Bolac in trying conditions last Saturday.
The match was a tough tussle up to halftime, where there was only two goals in it, falling the Hawks' way.
Tatyoon kept the Magpies goalless in the third quarter and went into the final stanza with a 15-goal lead.
The Magpies brought Amanda Clarke onto the court in the fourth term, where an immediate impact was felt, but it was all too little too late, as the Hawks went on to win the match quite convincingly 39 to 27.
Tatyoon's Mary Butler and Terri-Anne Lewis were named best for the home team, while Brooke and Amanda Clarke stood out for Wickliffe/Lake Bolac.
Moyston/Willaura has continued its good form following the break and proved too strong for Caramut.
The Pumas were focused right from the beginning, getting the jump on the Swans early in the match.
Moyston/Willaura extended its lead at each quarter break, eventually winning the match 50 to 19.
The Pumas welcomed Katy Jewell back after time on the sidelines with injury, and the goal defender was rewarded being named one of the best alongside the consistent Kira Stapleton.
Stapleton resumed her season back in the attacking circle, scoring 21 goals.
Caramut's Michelle Lehmann played a spirited game, while her teammate Hannah Delaney also worked hard.
The third placed Woorndoo/Mortlake took the trip to Alexandra Oval to face the Ararat Eagles in miserable weather.
Conditions made for a mixed game, with patches of good and messy play.
Ararat got away to a credible first quarter, trailing the higher ranked Tigers by one goal at the break.
Woorndoo/Mortlake came out in the second and took charge of the match, putting 13 goals on the board to the Eagles' four.
The Eagles steadied again in the third quarter but could not peg back the Tigers' lead, eventually going down 26 to 41.
A great game from Tigers' Nicole Muir and Kate Reynolds had their opposition covered at both ends of the court, but Ararat was not without its hard workers in youngsters Erin Hinchliffe and Jamie-Lee Bennett.
Hawkesdale/Macarthur played well to overpower SM&W Rovers by 13 goals.
In what was another close first quarter, the Southern Eagles held a mere one goal lead against the determined Bulldogs.
Hawkesdale/Macarthur then put on a spurt of goals in the second term and continued its momentum until the final whistle.
Rachael McGrath was in good form for the Southern Eagles in the goals, ably helped by centre player Grace Linke. Rovers' had standout players in Liz Williams and Peta Byrne.
Great Western tried hard all day to stop Lismore/Derrinallum's unbeaten record, but could not run the whole game out at the same pace as it started.
The Lions were extremely competitive up until halftime where they only trailed by three goals.
The second half of the match was a different story though, with the Demons breaking away to win by 19 goals.
Lee-Ann Moana and Missy Brown were best players for Great Western, while Stephanie and Chelsea Burns were named best on court for the victors.
In the final match of the round Penshurst came home with a wet sail to defeat Glenthompson/Dunkeld in a tense match.
The final score saw the Bombers with 36 goals defeat the Rams on 33.
