Another big weekend of EFNL Netball is on tomorrow night, so get your head around all of last weekend’s fallout here, with the Bendigo Bank Netball Review.
East Burwood Black 64 def East Burwood Rams 46
A very important game for both teams this week as 2nd and 3rd place battled it out on the courts. It was a very close game with only a one-goal difference at the end of the first quarter and a tie by halftime. However, East Burwood Black took charge in the third quarter and dominated in the goal circle, leading by an eight at the final break. Both teams were sitting at a 4-0 record but only one team came out on top with East Burwood Black defeating Burwood Rams by 18 goals.
Belinda Williams continues to shine in the goal circle scoring 35 goals on Friday making it her best game yet with Sarah Mulqueen and Ruby Klepac scoring 20 and 9 goals.
Danika Corless and Rylee Hamilton continue to work beautifully in the goal circle together with a shared 27 and 19 goals, however it wasn’t enough to get the Rams over the line.

Kilsyth Cougars 33 def Scoresby Magpies 30
A very close game between Kilsyth and Scoresby on Friday night. The Cougars were tailing closely behind the Pies at the end of the first quarter. By halftime the Couagrs took the lead by three goals but dropped to a one-goal lead at the end of the third quarter. In a game that could have gone either way, the Cougars proved to be too strong to overthrow as they managed to stay in the lead and defeat the Magpies by three goals.

Amazing effort from Mulgrave playing against top of the ladder Park Orchards. It was a very close game with Mulgrave never stepping down and keeping their competitive pressure on Park Orchards all throughout the game. Park Orchards was only leading by a couple goals all throughout the game leaving slight hope for Mulgrave to slip in and take the lead however Mulgrave couldn’t find their opening and lost by four goals.

Another close game for top of the ladder team Vermont playing against Balwyn who now sit at 6th on the ladder.

The fear of losing motivated the Eagles to put more force in the goal circle with Kellie Phillips dominating in the ring and scoring 22 goals accompanied by Jessica Scida’s 4. The Eagles were able to pull out a four-goal turnover by the end of the third quarter and just winning by two goals, keeping the Eagles undefeated.
