Goorambat's Olivia Wolff (GK) flies high in an attempt to block a Bonnie Doon shot on goal, during the Bats' six-point win over the Bombers.

With the Bats’ A-grade side desperate for a result on Saturday, losing was not an option.

All the girls played hard for a fantastic win.

Going into the game they were short of their regular players, however, a few B-grade girls stepped up to assist.

Carli Hogan played a fantastic first half in wing attack, which helped them get the start they needed with her drives and feeds into the ring.

Steph Hogg and Kylie Relf did not take long to get their eye in and were making the defenders work extra hard.

Catherine Masters and Elise Nolan applied defensive pressure which allowed Ally Ellis and Olivia Wolff to pick some off in the ring.

A hard-fought game by everyone who took the court on Saturday saw the Bats get a six-goal win.

Best on court went to Steph Hogg, Catherine Masters and Ally Ellis.

B-grade

The girls took the court with determination on Saturday and gave it their all.

With Chelsea Bamford and Carli Hogan working well together in goals which gave the team every opportunity to come home with a win.

Emily Rice and Narissa Drane had great drives down the court and fantastic feeds into the ring.

The defensive pressure was faultless with Gorgia Spinks working hard in wing defence.

Defender Erin O’Brien was terrific with many intercepts and when possible rebounds.

Unfortunately, the game slipped away and they couldn’t take it to Bonnie Doon in the last quarter.

Best on court went to Erin O’Brien, Narissa Drane and Gorgia Spinks.

B-reserve

A slow start from the Bats was the main factor in their 28-39 loss.

To the team’s credit they played hard until the end, and won the final quarter 10 goals to Bonnie Doon’s 4.

Sarah Devine, Emma Boman and Kobi Chapman were fantastic in the attacking end.

They showed great vision when feeding into the ring to the shooters.

Sarah was a great leader throughout the court and had a very reasonable game under the ring.

The girls take on Bright at home next weekend.

C-grade

The girls came out repeating the intensity from the previous week.

With full court pressure the girls converted quickly and combined well in attack.

Goorambat took time to change play, but kept the game tight.

Defensively Chelsea Beavis and Kirsten Hooper combined well reading play and snaffling some great intercepts.

The Bats were not able to take the win but showed what they can achieve in the future.

Best on court was Taylah Grubissa, Hannah Ely and Kirsten Hooper.
