ON Laharum’s return game against Natimuk United, the Mountain Maids had all of the answers.
When the two powerhouses met in round three of the Horsham District league, the Mountain Maids won by two goals.
This time around the Mountain Maids won 55 to 27.
It was a tight start and Laharum coach Liz Reddie thought it was going to pan out in the same manner as it did in round three.
“For the second quarter I moved Bek McIntyre into goal keeper, Erin Mellington into wing defence, Jordie McAuliffe into goal attack and Melanie Russell into wing attack,” she said.
“I think it flustered them.
“Bek made a big difference in defence.”
A huge piece of the Ewes’ puzzle was missing in Shannon Couch – their main target at goal shooter.
“That left a big hole in their team,” Reddie said.
Reddie was impressed with her team’s efforts.
“The girls kept level heads,” she said.
“It felt like we had to prove we could win and everyone stepped up. It was a big win for us – it shows we can make changes through the whole court.
“This win has given everyone some more confidence.”
Reddie said versatile Ally Hiscock played a strong game in wing attack and centre. Caitlin Story scored 44 goals for Laharum.
Emily Hately was named best on court for the Ewes.
