HORSHAM bounced back from its second semi-final loss against Horsham Saints to claim the 15 and under A title in convincing fashion on Saturday.
The Demons went down 34-32 to the Saints a fortnight ago, but Pauline Butler’s girls were determined from the get-go to run away with the match 38-19.
“I’m proud of each and every one of them on their efforts,” she said.
Captain Faith McKenzie stood tall in goal defence, helping control the influence of Saints attackers Brittany Nitschke and Rene Caris on her way to earning best on court honours.
At the other end, the Bianca Drum and Keely Pope combination was impressive, scoring 25 and 13 goals respectively.
The Demons were at their dominant best in the second quarter, outscoring their opponents 11-4.
The Saints put in a much-improved performance in the second half, but the 13-goal half-time difference was too big.
It was a disappointing finale for the Saints, who had dropped just one game this season – a 24-16 loss to Horsham RSL Diggers on Anzac Day.
