DEDERANG-Mt Beauty notched up their fourth win of the season when they held off Wodonga Saints 36-35 at Wodonga on Saturday.

“It was very tight,” Goonan said.
Goal shooter Emma Cardwell and goalkeeper Leah Carter were fine contributors for Dederang-Mt Beauty.
Wodonga Saints’ Taylor Morey and Ebony Williams ensured the clash went down to the wire.
Rutherglen were too strong for Beechworth, winning 40-13.
Emily Browne was a strong performer for the fourth-placed Cats while shooter Brittney Deegan proved dangerous with 23 goals.
