Kristy Davis in C grade action.

A Grade
Yarrawonga were up against a much improved Myrtleford side but the Pigeons started the game off well with a six goal lead at quarter time.  
With Hannah Symes absent due to injury Anna Grinter played well at GK with Lauren Mulquiney challenging at GD.  
At the half time break the Pigeons had pushed out their lead by 16.  
Myrtleford settled and although outscoring Yarra in the third term 13 to 11 they could only reduce the margin by three.  
Apart from Laura Zanin’s strong attack in the centre it was a lacklustre Pigeon unit that allowed Myrtleford to maintain the same scoring shots as the home team.   
With a good first half the Pigeons delivered another win 59-46.
Goals: B Cassar 36, A Jones 23.
Best: Kaitlyn Cummins and Abbey Jones.

B Grade
Just as anticipated with Yarrawonga sixth and Myrtleford eighth on the ladder this was the closest contest of the day.  
Great to have Kylie Leslie back after injury who provided a great performance for her return.  
Yarrawonga were down by two at the end of the first. After the break Myrtleford came back on and applied plenty of pressure causing errors by Yarrawonga pushing out the lead to 10 by half time.
Hannah Symes made some crucial changes during the long break which saw a remarkable fight back by the Pigeons in the third.
However it was a gallant Myrtleford unit who simply outplayed Yarrawonga who finally went down by 12.   Final score 45-50
Goals:  A Tyrell 22, K Robilliard 12, T Bogle 11.
Best: Kylie Leslie and Angela Tyrell.

C Grade
The game started with Yarrawonga up by 12 at quarter time.  
The Pigeons kept their foot on the pedal with superior play in all positions.  Jenny Buerckner dominated at GK.  
At half time Yarra was in front by 32, at the third turn by 53 and then at the final whistle it was a win by 75 goals, Yarrawonga 86 to Myrtleford 11.
Goals: E Soutter 45, T Bogle 22, S Kennedy 19.
Best: Steph Kennedy, Jenny Buerckner, Katrina Kennedy.

Under 16
With four girls away on school camp, Grace Mulquiney stepped up as if she had been playing all year.  
With Yarrawonga sitting fourth on the ladder and the Myrtleford side on the bottom, the Saints were happy to have the first two goals on the board but the Yarra girls stepped up and in the next seven minutes scored eight goals.  
The Pigeons continued to dominate and made the most of every turnover.  
Although a great game overall by the Pigeons it was the last quarter that was the best.  
Team work, fantastic defence work, accurate goal shooting and showing great staying power the Under 16 girls deserved their fabulous win by 36 goals.  Final score 60-24.
Goals:  E York 49, G Mulquiney 11.
Best: Eliza York and Grace Mulquiney.
