Undefeated Devils remain on top

Undefeated Devils remain on top

Playing coach Shayna Brown believes this year’s Corio line-up is the best she has played in since taking over the reins in 2018.

The Devils climbed the mountain in Round 1 when defeating reigning premier Werribee Centrals 48-35 in windy conditions.

Next came wins over Belmont Lions and Bell Post Hill before defeating fellow premiership contenders Winchelsea and East Geelong to secure a 5-0 start.

“We have so many elements of depth, a versatile bunch of girls it’s great,” Brown explained.

“Not one person is stuck in a position, we all can rotate around which is exciting.”

Corio’s only A Grade title to date was secured in 2004, joining inaugural premier Belmont Lions (2002) and North Geelong (2003).

Last year Brown’s line-up returned to the finals only to be eliminated by Thomson in the first week.

Fast forward to Saturday’s 50-40 away win against East Geelong and the Devils now sit outright top of the table.

“We stuck to our structures, were the first to every loose ball and left nothing on the court,” Brown reflected.

The top of the table Corio will now play host to Inverleigh before travelling to Thomson.

They will then finish the month by taking on the winless Geelong West Giants at home.

“There’s always lots to work on, the key is maintaining our game and our structures,” Brown concluded.

“We don’t want to peak too early.

“We are a close bunch off the court to building those relationships is essential to geling on court I believe.”
