Wimmera got their day off to a good start with a convincing win in the under 13s which was their first of three wins on the day.

Stawell's Kasey Mornane was dominant in the goal attack position for the Wimmera justifying her selection.

The game was even for the majority of the match before Wimmera pulled away in the last quarter.

The final result was 26-21.

Georgie Carberry of Horsham was the winner of the VCFL medal and the Bendigo Bank spectators medal.

In the under 15s Wimmera started slowly with only one goal the difference at the first quarter break before they ran away with it.

Wimmera outscored North Central 14-5 in the second term and didn't take their foot off the pedal from there.

Ellie Breuer of Horsham Saints, was the recipient of both medals in their 52-22 victory.

The only team to fall short of victory was the under 17 girls which featured Stawell's Meg Walker.

Wimmera jumped North Central early, but had a second quarter lapse, letting their opposition back into the game.

For the remainder of the game it was goal for goal until the final three minutes where Wimmera again made mistakes under pressure.

North Central finished on top 38-34.

Leiah McKenzie of the Warracknabeal Eagles was best on court receiving the VCFL medal for her efforts in the mid court while Ellena Binny from Horsham was the spectators favourite.

Sharon Fedke went from coach to player as she took the court for the A grade team.

Like the under 17s it was an even contest until the final stages of the last quarter, where Wimmera pulled away to win 39-36.

Fedke, of Horsham Saints, was judged best on court with Zoe Heard of Horsham the spectators first pick.
