Carisbrook gets redemption over Trentham in grand final rematch

Anika Munn passes across court for Carisbrook during her sideʼs key win over Trentham on Saturday.

Carisbrook enjoyed redemption at the weekend, beating out Trentham, the side who denied it victory in last year’s grand final.

Trentham’s fall from grace has only been further highlighted with this recent loss, its fourth this season after previously going undefeated for over 900 days.

The Saints were such a dominant force as back-to-back premiers and claimed the 2018 title out of the hands of the Redbacks in overtime.

Brook well and truly got its own back on Saturday, leading comfortably at every break and keeping Trentham to just 16 goals in the first half.

The Saints just couldn’t fight their way back in the first two terms and in the end went down 56-34.

Peggy De Spirt, Hayley Bourke and Kelly Matheson-Miller fought hard for the losing team, but the absence of Jasmine Coleman was clearly felt with the side calling on Erin Richardson and Matheson- Miller in the mid.

Chrissy James had a cracking game in goals for Brook, shooting at 87 percent for 31 of the side’s total score.

Elise Mottram and Amanda Cox were strong in defence for the Redbacks.

Another impactful result was reached on Saturday in Dunolly, with Lexton claiming only its second win of the season over the powerful Eagles.

After winning over an under- staffed Maryborough Rovers side last weekend by just a few goals, a second win for the Tigers was largely unforeseen.
