ROBIN Hood goal attack Erin Taylor was quick to praise her teammates after they took out Saturday’s Orange Netball Association division one grand final.
The five-time defending champions came from behind to beat Life Studio 46-44 in a thrilling decider.
“Our defence was amazing. They stepped up and shut their attack down,” Taylor said.
“Loz (Lauren Williams) was pivotal. Lily (Sims) stepped up. To come in three-quarters of the way through the season, like Lily did, and do so well was fantastic.”
But Taylor also deserved her share of the praise.
She took some time to settle in, shooting at 50 per cent for the first half.
In the third quarter she stepped things up to pot 10 of her 16 shots.
But it was in the final period where she really shone.
Taylor landed all nine of her shots to have a 100 per cent record for fourth quarter.
“It’s about time,” she laughed.
Robin Hood coach Cindy Gilchrist said Taylor was a key part of the side’s win.
“Erin stepped up at half-time and really took on a leadership role,” Gilchrist said.
Taylor was surprised to get the win after her side trailed in all but the last quarter.
She was impressed with Life Studio’s performance.
“Credit to Life Studio - they played a great game,” Taylor said.
