CHARLES Sturt University coach Kirsty Lowe is confident playing in Wagga's mid-week league this year will put them in the best possible position to finally achieve their goal of winning a Farrer League premiership.
The Bushsows have come close on a handful of occasions in recent years, losing back-to-back grand finals against The Rock-Yerong Creek in 2018 and 2019 before the league wasn't played last year.
They moved to 6-1 in the midweek competition, just behind unbeaten Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes, with a hard fought 59-49 win over fourth-placed Turvey Park on Wednesday night.
"It was really tight. We were down at one state during the match, and we had good chats during the three quarter time break which allowed us to get away with it in the last quarter," she said.
"We put our heads down, and it's good to play those matches where it shows as a team we can come from behind.
"We mix it up (for Wednesday night games), we've got so much versatility as a team."
The Bushsows are currently 11-1 in the Farrer League, ahead of Temora only on percentage.

"The Wednesday games have been really good because it gives us that push for our Saturday games," Lowe said.
"We've had high intensity games where we have to fight for every ball. It's tough competition in the Wagga competition."
Lowe knows the Goannas, the defending Riverina League champions, will be tough to topple.
"I watched them play a bit on Wednesday and they're a beautiful team to watch, there's definitely a lot of talent on that team," she said.
In other matches on Wednesday New Kids Attack defeated Shooting Stars 43-38, the Goannas dominated Nixons 82-36 and New Kids Aces were too strong for Uranquinty 89-38.
