Convincing Lakers’ win

By Seymour Telegraph

Nagambie called on the help of two fresh faces to make it eight from eight on Saturday.

Under-17 players Alicia McLeod and Tasman Taylor-Lloyd stepped up for their first taste of A-grade, taking a convincing win against Longwood.

Coach Abby Misiti said both girls put in a strong performance for their senior debut.

‘‘It was great for them to have that exposure and it will be great for their development,’’ she said.

Both girls got a quarter each in the 90-19 victory.

Bianca Willis also starred for the Lakers in goal shooter, racking up an enormous 75 goals.

‘‘Everyone obviously worked hard to get the ball there but she really delivered,’’ Misiti said.

‘‘It was really great to see that the last few weeks we’ve been able to put together four strong quarters.’’

Alicia White also had a great defensive game for Nagambie, keeping Longwood to just 19.

Nagambie look to continue their perfect season when they come up against Rushworth for round nine.

Rushworth are currently sitting towards the bottom end of the ladder and suffered a round eight loss to Undera.

‘‘We’ll work hard and prepare,’’ Misiti said.

‘‘We’ll put some targets in place and try to reach them out against Rushworth.’’

Rushworth will have the home ground advantage for that match.

●The Lakers B-grade defeated Longwood 48-21, C-grade won 75-8 and the under-17s won 77-7.
