WITH Penguin down by 17 points at half-time in last night’s NWBU women’s grand final against Latrobe, the club’s first premiership win in 18 years seemed improbable.
The situation called for a hero, and Lauren Mansfield delivered.
The Blues’ star player, who drives in from Launceston for games every Tuesday, almost single- handedly hauled her team back into the contest after half-time on the way to an incredible 75-70 victory.

Mansfield was tenacious, hunted the ball, scrapped for everything and was determined to get her team over the line, setting Penguin alight in the third quarter.
“I knew we were really struggling in the first half, we really just couldn’t get our offence together, we knew we had to change some things and we ended up just getting a bit of momentum,” she said minutes after the final buzzer.
