A grade got off to a slow start with the Bombers scoring 16 goals in the first quarter to Swifts three.

Encouragement spurred the Baggies on, but it wasn't until the fourth quarter where they hit their best form.

In the last quarter Swifts outscored Noradjuha Quantong 12-9.

Lauren Dempsey moved well in the wings and shot well in the final quarter and Emily Patterson was once again impressive in defence.

Dempsey took home best on court Sneek a Peek voucher while Patterson took the club award.

The final score was Swifts losing 20-52.

Best players were Taryn Wynd with the Llewats award and Isabella Robson with the club award.

Renee Bullen was a standout performer and showed her versatility in the C grade match when she went from the midcourt to defence.

Sharyn Salmi was forced to take the court after injuries and players being unavailable.

She proved that she still has what it takes playing three quarters in the centre.

Bullen was the winner of the Sportspower best on court, while Emily Davis won the club award.

In the under 17 match Swifts went down 23-44.
