Nagambie has made it 10 straight after a convincing 16-goal win over Murchison-Toolamba.

Another tough top-four clash could have unsettled the Lakers but a strong performance from the girls in red, white and black saw them over the line.

Murchison-Toolamba, who has recruited well to rejuvenate its list in the off-season, kept in touch with the Lakers and managed to avoid a blowout.

Nagambie had to work hard to restrict the Hoppers as they managed to hit the scoreboard fairly consistently.

The Lakers had to dig deep to build their lead gradually over the match and eventually ran out 53-37 winners.

The match will have proved worthwhile for the Lakers who are looking to ensure their squad is watertight before coming up against league-leader Avenel in two weeks.

The Lakers will go into their bye round in second place behind Avenel.

The Swans beat Nagambie in round one, and are the only team to remain undefeated, but have had to deal with major injury blows since their league opening fixture.

Nagambie will be looking to better its scoreline against its rivals, who’ve recruited both internally and externally to fill any potential leaks in their list.

●In the lower grades, B-grade lost to Murchison-Toolamba 33-39, while C-grade were easy winners with a 34-20 victory.

The under-17s put on a dominant performance to win 55-11 over Murchison-Toolamba and the under-15 side was a 35-22 winner.
