Southern Mallee Giants A Grade netballers have produced a big upset, stunning reigning premiers Minyip-Murtoa by 30-points.
The Giants now have two wins from their first two games and coach Mikayla George says the win felt "absolutely amazing".
"They definitely served it up to us in the first quarter, I was a little bit nervous," George said.
"They had a few changes from when I saw them play Warrack in round one, but I'm so proud of my girls.
"The strength and the depth that we have within our A Grade side I think is what's going to carry us through.
"I made a lot of changes and we never cracked or shattered under pressure, so I'm generally so, so proud of the girls."
Strength was key to the win, according to George, who couldn't be prouder of the way her side played.
"Our strength was just there all day," she said.
"We dug deep and we didn't let any loose balls be easily theirs, we just kept chasing and flogging our little hearts out.
"I always have a saying that if you come to me at the end of the quarter and you're done and you're ready to leave the court because you've got nothing left in your tank, then I'm happy.
"A lot of the girls did that and they gave me the wave that they were done and I could see that and that's all I ask."
Brylee Schache was the Giant's best player, while goal attack Zali Brown was influential with 36 goals.
