Two of the Wimmera's most promising young footballers starred for their respective Vic Country sides at the weekend.
Ella Friend was a stand-out for Vic Country's under-16 girl's team in Mt Gambier on Saturday.
The Horsham Saint was named her side's best in a tough 5.3 (33) to 3.5 (23) loss against South Australia.
The Big V side was competitive in Mt Gambier, trailing by only four points at half-time, but Friend couldn't get her team over the line in the end.
In Launceston, Mitch Martin helped his side to an emphatic 97-point win against the Allies.
The fellow Horsham Saints product bagged three goals in a blistering performance.
The Vic Country under-18 side now has two wins under its belt, heading into a two-week break before a hit-out against South Australia on June 22.
Friend's under-16 girl's team next play Vic Metro at Werribee on June 22, as well.
