Kyby headed to Casterton on Sunday where they took on the home team in front of a large crowd for the last game of round six.

In a tight, hard-fought game, with the end score not being a true reflection of the contest, it was the Tigers that came out victors by 30 points.

Right from the very first bounce, Casterton set the tone for the way the match would be played.

There were a couple of big, solid clashes at the ball and within a few minutes had their first score on the board.

The Tigers appeared taken aback and unsettled in the first quarter, as Casterton continued to dish out a hard brand of footy.

Mykaela Walker held her head for Kyby and slotted to goals with the Tigers going into the first break with a six point lead.

For the remainder of the game, Casterton continued to be physical at the ball.

They played great football, remained calm and shared the ball around teammates with good skills.

Kyby, usually doing the bullying, were being bullied and didn't appear to settle to gain their usual full control of the game.

The Kyby backs were doing a tremendous job holding out wave after wave of attacks.

And for all Casterton's hard work they could not get through to score.

Kyby were able to slingshot a few plays and continue scoring, but being made to earn every possession with nothing coming easy.

The Casterton army were in full voice behind the home side in an entertaining game.

Goal Kickers for the tigers being, Mykaela Walker 4 and Sophie Hensckhe 3.
