Success for Boroondara Express

THREE Gippslanders helped engineer a massive upset in the Victorian Netball League grand final on Saturday, when Boroondara Express defeated City West Falcons at the State Netball Hockey Centre.

Kate Eddy and Lara Dunkley of Sale Football Netball Club and Ramayer Gourley of Traralgon FNC were members of the Express outfit which outclassed the Falcons 50-44.

Eddy was superb in the early exchanges, forcing two Falcons turnovers off their centre pass to help establish a 7-2 lead inside of five minutes.

The Express led 25-22 at half-time, and although Falcons drew level by three-quarter-time, Boroondara pulled away in the last to score a fairytale win.
