No surprises found in the VNL

MOST of the results last week in the VNL went the way many would expect.

Melbourne Uni has moved into fourth on the ladder after overcoming Casey.

The Lightning were made to work hard for their win, only pulling ahead late to take the crucial points.

One side that did not have to work so hard for their win was the Express, who made light work of the Waves.

The Express were already double the Waves’ score by quarter time and they just did not look back from there.

North East Blaze has suffered its second straight loss after narrowly going down to the Saints.

The Blaze did have the lead early, but things tightened up as the match progressed. The Saints were five goals up in the shadows of full time, but the Blaze took it right to the end with the last three goals of the match, but ultimately fell short.

The City West Falcons kept their spot in the top two after downing the Hawks by nine goals.

It was only two goals the difference at the main break, but the Falcons put their foot down in the third term to open up the game, which was ultimately the decisive quarter.

The last match of the round was two days later and was perhaps the one with the most surprising result, with the Warriors overcoming the Cougars by nine goals.

It was only one goal the difference at quarter time, but it was not that close for long as the Warriors kept growing their lead as the match continued.
