TORQUAY scored a convincing win against Drysdale in the A Grade netball game on Saturday.
The Tigers won by 19 goals despite the best efforts of Vicki King, Rachel King and Paige McGrath.
The loss left the Hawks just outside the top four on percentage and they will need to displace Anglesea to make the finals.
It was a much closer affair in B Grade, with Drysdale going down by just four goals. Jemma Kiddle was on fire with 21 goals. Drysdale sits sixth on the ladder, two games plus percentage outside the top four.
Torquay also proved too strong in the C Grade game, winning by 21 goals. Drysdale is seventh on the ladder and cannot make the finals.
It was a happier story in D Grade with the Hawks running out winners by one goal. The Hawks are two games outside the top four, but have a slightly better percentage than fourth-placed Barwon Heads and can still make the finals with a string of late-season wins.
The under-19s played out a thrilling tie with the scores locked at 31 apiece.
Drysdale emerged victorious in the 17U Division One game with Ella Mannix, Paige McGrath and Zali Havelberg leading the way. The 17U Division Two side went down to Torquay.
In the 15U games, the Section One team lost to Torquay by 12 goals, while the Section Two team fought bravely to go down by just three goals with Jayde Halson, Emerald McNeill and Kira Miles playing well.
The 13U girls had good games with the Section One team battling hard, going down by nine goals. The Section Two team lost heavily but played a very good second quarter with Ruby Maynard, Maddison Cuolahan and Georgia Bauckham doing everything possible.
