Singleton’s elite women celebrated an inspiring 15-point win over Muswellbrook thanks to a four goal haul from Brianna Howard.
The home side held their opponents goalless for the opening 37 minutes of the match before Eila Mills found the Cats’ first goal just moments before the main break.
The Cats would storm home with five of the games final seven goals however it would be Mal Draper’s side who would claim the four points.
Sophie Breeze, Tayla Gall and Tayla Maloney were named as Singleton’s best players while Tori Cowburn also managed to land two goals in the first half.

And while the side looked promising early, courtesy of an early major to Dylan Hixon, it would be a day to forget for Andrew Scott’s men as the Panthers celebrated a 170-point victory.
The Roosters would be without star utility Sam Brasington (MCL) and new recruit Josh Eade (ankle) in the second half as the Panthers landed the final 15 goals of the game.
Singleton will hope to welcome back key forward Jacob Welsh, ruckman Brenton Potter as well as ball-winners Mitchell Gaffney, Matt Cornelius, Scott Moore, James Colmer, Richard Wilkes and Luke Draper when travelling to Wyong Lakes this Saturday.
