The Horsham Saints have put together a great game in round five of the Wimmera Football Netball League, pulling off a 10 goal win over Minyip-Murtoa.
It was a close battle on the Coughlin Park courts, but the Saints showed their skill as they pulled away in the second half.
The Saints trailed 14-8 at quarter-time, but steadily reeled in the reigning premiers for their fourth win over the season.
Horsham Saints A Grade coach Ash Grace said she was proud of the way her team rallied to fight back from a slow start.
"We went into it thinking it would be a tough game," she said.
"You never go into a game easy against the reigning premiers, and so we knew it was going to be tough game and we would have to work the whole game and push ourselves to get over the line.
Overall it is a good result and we are happy with the win.
"We worked the ball down the court really well. We used lots of short, sharp passes which helped us get the ball down the court.
"It was very close all game. The score definitely, didn't reflect the game it was really tough and well fought out."
Grace said it was a team effort to get the four points, but highlighted Abby Hallam and Rory Doran as two players who stood out on the day.
"Abby Hallam is really stepping up to the mark this year and she played a really good game," she said.
"Rory Doran has pushed up from under-17s into A Grade and she has showed that she is ready to rock and roll when she is needed in A Grade.
"Our teamwork was great, to come back from a few down at quarter-time was really good.
"Our expectations are still the same. We are pushing hard every week and trying to do the best that we can.
"We just have to keep that momentum and that work up as the season as goes on."
Mid-courter Megan Byrne was also one of the Saints better players, while Jessica Farrow was important in the ring.
The Burras are the reigning premiers, but so far in 2021 they have struggled and they remain winless.
Meanwhile the Horsham Saints' win pushed them to a 4-1 record for the season, putting them right up near the top of the table.
In the other round five WFNL A Grade games Warrack defeated Ararat by 15 goals.
