The 41-26 Round 15 result was a great finish for the team, but the game didn’t start out so easily.

“First half was quite slow and we were trying to play to Leongatha’s pace, and that’s not really our style so we threw a few away early,” Warragul A Grade coach Lexie Fenton told the Baw Baw Citizen.

“But the second half was much better – we just gathered ourselves and were a bit more content with how we should be playing.”

The win was a good pick-me-up after last week’s loss to Traralgon.


“We lost to Traralgon, but we had a good few wins coming up, so hopefully the next few weeks, if we can consolidate those wins we can sneak into finals and that’s what we’ve really been hoping for,” Lexie said.

“Leongatha beat us first time around so we were really hoping to get the four points this time, and it was the first time I’ve ever beaten them in the three years I’ve been coaching, so pretty happy to do it, especially on our home court and coming into finals.”

Renee Cook was named best on court.

“She’s awesome, just so many intercepts in the defence end and just dictates the play when she’s got the ball,” Lexie said.

“She just reads it so well. I think she’s leading the Gippsland Laser award and she’s probably a hot favourite to win the league BnF, so she’s awesome, killed it again.
