Sandhurst played in  all five of Bendigo Netball League grand finals at the QEO on Saturday, winning three lower grade flags while Eaglehawk claimed the other on the QEO court.

Sandhurst turned the tables on Golden Square after a 53-39 qualifying final defeat to win the A-reserve premiership.

The Hurst won the grand final 41-33, with Georgia Tatnall best on court.

There was nothing between the two clubs all season, both winning twice from their four meetings and finishing the home and away season on equal points.

Eaglehawk finished off its dominant B-grade season with a comprehensive 43-30 triumph against Sandhurst.

The Hawks only lost once during the season to finish two wins clear on top of the ladder, but its title aspirations looked shaky after going down to the maroon and blue in the second semi-final.

However, Eaglehawk rediscovered its best form when it mattered most.

Borough captain Kahlia Osborne was named best on court.

It was an incredible season finale in the first year of the B-reserve competition, with Sandhurst coming from fifth to win the title 29-26 against Kangaroo Flat.

The Hurst looked gone after just six wins from its first 14 games this year, but won its last four games to clinch fifth spot.

Sandhurst then survived three elimination finals, including a one-goal win against Golden Square in the preliminary final to make the grand final.

B-reserve best and fairest Tiffany Holt from Kangaroo Flat, and a Betty Thompson medallist, was named best player in the grand final.

Sandhurst completed an undefeated season in the 17-and-under competition, easily outpointing Kangaroo Flat 36-22 in the grand final.

The Roos did well to restrict Sandhurst to only its third-lowest winning margin this season, with the Hurst’s domination shown by it scoring more than 1000 goals in 18 home-and-away games this season, with a percentage of 235. 

Sandhurst centre Brooke Bolton was named best on court.
