Avenel pulled off a 10-point win on the weekend when they came up against Undera.

The Swans were made to work for the win, taking the game with the final scoreboard reading 33-43.

Avenel coach Kelly Smith said that despite claiming the win it was a tough game for the girls.

‘‘Looking at them before the game they were pretty unknown to us and we weren’t sure of their ability so the whole game was a bit of a battle for us,’’ she said.

‘‘The win probably came down to the determination across the four quarters, we just gritted our teeth and tried the best we could and that’s a testament to the team.

‘‘We just kept plugging at it so it wasn’t a nice clean streak to run away with.’’

Moving into the league’s bye round for the interleague clash between the KDFNL and the Colac and District leagues, Smith said the team is looking forward to having a short break.

‘‘It’s only the early part of the season but it’s nice to relax and then go and try again,’’ she said.

‘‘Hopefully we can get together at training and work on a few things and then we take on Nagambie.’’

With the majority of the Avenel side not participating in the Interleague game, Smith said there were several areas the team was looking to improve on.

‘‘Coming from Saturday’s game I’d say there were a lot of unforced errors,’’ she said.

‘‘Our ability to try to make decisions at the right time wasn’t happening where it needed to come into play like where to pass the ball.

‘‘We probably had our best game the week before; sometimes teams just have bad games.’’

Avenel will return after a week off to play Nagambie on May 26 at Avenel.
