Moyston-Willaura fell just short of Penshurst by 11 goals in the round one match at Willaura on Saturday.

The clash saw a battle of goal shooters, with Bomber Carly Behncke scoring 32 of Penhursts 40 goals, while Pumas coach Zanetta Hosking potted 20 of her sides 29 goals.

With the half time margin blowing out to 10 goals, the Pumas brought in Taryn Kelly to goal keeper and Monique Dowling to wing defense but were unable to peg back the Bombers lead in the second half.
