Western Jets and the Murray Bushrangers played out a thrilling draw in the NAB League Girls competition on Saturday.

Looking to captialise on a strong round one performance, the Jets were pushed throughout by the Bushrangers, in what would be a low-scoring affair.

Scores were level at the first two breaks, with the sides kicking three goals each.

The Bushrangers scored in the third quarter, adding 1.1 to take a seven-point lead into the last change.

The Knights kicked a point early in the final quarter to bring the margin back to a goal.

Caitilin Sargent kicked a goal in the 10th minute of the last quarter to level the scores. Neither team could find the winning kick, with scores finishing 4.3 (27) apiece.
