Stawell has hit the court running in Wimmera league netball competition, scoring a 10-goal win over arch rival Ararat in a Good Friday season opener in Ararat.
The Warriors established a winning break midway through the contest, expanding a three-goal quarter-time lead to six at the main break.
It was a lead that proved telling as the contest, played in unseasonably warm weather, intensified in the second half.
Stawell maintained the advantage, dropping 27 second-half goals to Ararat’s 23.
