VNL’s Pride Round brings pride to plenty

IT was the VNL’s annual Pride Round this week, and as the competition celebrates the spices of life, the round’s results were just as spicy.

The Western Warriors have come back from their bye in a big way, comfortably downing Casey.

Casey actually led at quarter time, but the Warriors flipped the script in the second term and pushed on from there.

The North East Blaze broke their losing run with a win over the Bendigo Strikers.

Although the Strikers had a narrow lead at the first break, but the Blaze then flipped the script in the second term and pushed on from there.

The Geelong Cougars can breathe a sigh of relief after narrowly beating the Southern Saints.

It was a tight affair right up until the end of the match and the Saints certainly had their chances to pinch the win in the final minutes of the game, but missed some crucial shots to be denied the win.  

The big wins have kept coming for Melbourne Uni after they downed the Peninsula Waves.

Melbourne Uni led at every change, progressively growing their lead as the game progressed.

The final match of the round delivered perhaps one of the surprises of the round, after the Hawks and Express played out a draw.

The Hawks were five goal up with mere minutes left, but three goals from the Express in two minutes tightened thing up again. The Hawks then scored a goal before the Express scored three in the space of a minute and a half to level up the match and set up the draw.
