Pimpinio kept in touch with the top five by defeating Taylors Lake in a tough and physical game on Saturday.

The side won every quarter on the way to its comfortable 45-32 win.

Tigers coach Marnie Lehmann sat out the game injured but said her side looked like it was in control throughout the match.

“It was hard and tough but the girls adjusted when they needed to in order to keep on top,” she said.

After a closely contested first quarter the home side led by just three goals.

Keziah Freeman moved from wing defence to an unfamiliar role at goal defence.

“She’s not really a defender but I moved her to goal defence and she played well despite her size,” Lehmann said.

Pimpinio edged ahead by a further two goals during the second quarter and the side’s momentum continued during the second half.

Lehmann said she had more of an opportunity to view the whole court from the sideline as her team built its lead to 13 by the final whistle. “I had a lot more to say at the breaks,” she said.

“Normally all I can see if focused at the defensive end of the court.

“There is still plenty for us to work on, we need to be more confident playing our game and not get sucked into playing how the opposition want us to play.”

Kelsey Hamilton was another key player in the win. She shot 23 of her side’s goals and was a leader on the court. 

“She lifted when we needed her and took big steps up when some other heads dropped,” Lehmann said.
