Trent Barrett Shield success is heading back to Temora after St Anne’s proved to strong in the leaguetag final on Tuesday.
Taking on defending champions South Wagga Public at Paramore Park, St Anne’s jumped out to an early lead after some strong running from Maisy McCrone.
The fleet of foot youngster, who was named best in the final, helped her side to a 4-0 lead at the break.
Early in the second half Lilli Block doubled their advantage before the Wagga side stormed back into the contest.
Milla Pavitt got South Wagga within four points and then looked to have gone over for her second only to be denied twice by the officials.
Block responded late to push the result out of doubt and secure a 12-4 win.
Coach Mark Hughes was thrilled with their performance.
“It was a very job good from the girls,” Hughes said.
“They are a terrific little team and they saved their best for last.
“They had a couple of shaky games early on, but saved their best for a quality side like South Wagga.”
Hughes thought speed was the key to the win.
“All the girls have got great skills, but you have to have speed,” he said.
“You can’t beat speed and the South Wagga side had some good speed, but we had the speed to match them.”
