Brown Hill storms home to force draw in final round

Brown Hill has come from eight goals down to force a spectacular draw in the final minor round of Ballarat Netball Association’s The Athlete’s Foot Cup.

IN FORM: Jedda Heard had a good game in goal shooter during Brown Hill's draw with Eureka on Tuesday night. That came in the last round of the The Athlete’s Foot Cup.

Eureka was seemingly in control of the game – leading by six goals at half time – but made some positional changes for the start of the second half.

Experienced centre Stacey Rae went to the bench as Eureka experimented with its lineup in the last game before finals.

That sparked a rally from Brown Hill that saw it draw within one goal at the last change.

With Rae back on court, the teams went goal for goal in the final quarter and couldn’t be separated at full time.

Jedda Heard continued her impressive form at goal shooter for Brown Hill.

In Tuesday night’s other game, Dela Oscar’s started the contest knowing a win over Wendouree could see it steal top spot ahead of next week’s semi finals.

And the Oscar’s did just that, piling on the pressure in the last quarter to win the game by 15 goals and replace Wendouree at the summit.

In next Tuesday’s elimination semi finals, Wendouree has a meeting with Eureka and Dela Oscar’s will play Brown Hill.

Both winners will then play in the grand final the following week.
