HORSHAM Demon Mel Scott went one better in this year’s B Grade netball best and fairest count.
Scott finished runner-up to Stawell’s Kirsty Coote by two votes last season, but this time she finished in front of a Warrior.
Erin Freeland, 24 votes, was four votes behind in second place, while Nhill’s Emma Geyer rounded out the placings on 19 votes.
Stawell’s Jaiden Bach, who was one of the early movers, finished in fourth position on 17 votes.
Scott was one of four double-digit vote-getters for the Demons, while Janelle Knight, 14 votes, Sheridan Petering, 12, and Amanda Worthy, 11, also polled well.
She credited coach Emma Uebergang for her massive influence on the team.
“She’s put in a lot of work with us and it’s certainly paid off with our fitness and game play,” Scott said.
Scott and her Horsham team-mates will face Stawell in Saturday’s B Grade grand final. It is a match she is feeling positive about.
“We’re confident we’re going to play well so we’ll see what happens on the day,” she said.
The two-time Horsham District Netball Association A Grade best and fairest winner with Harrow-Balmoral said she was loving her second season at the Demons.
