Race towards finals

Reanna Wetherall will look to deny Robe goalies opportunity under the post when the Magpies host the Roosters this week.

PORT MACDONNELL v TANTANOOLA

Port MacDonnell hosts Tantanoola for the Mid South East netball match of the round this week.

After a close result back in Round 6, the Tigers will look for redemption.

They will look to Casey Walker and Madi Kelly for accurate feeding into Emma Gould and Jami Walker in the circle.

However, Port MacDonnell defenders Alana Winter and Belinda O’Dine will put the pressure on and make them earn every goal.

The experience and accuracy of Toni Gilmore paired with Brooke Williams in the goal circle will leave minimal opportunities for Tigers’ defenders.

With three minor rounds to play, the Tigers sit in fourth and will be eager to lock themselves in finals contention, while the Demons are down in seventh but can statistically still sneak into the four.

This game has the potential to go either way, with plenty riding on the win for both sides.

KALANGADOO v ROBE

Kalangadoo is set to host Robe this weekend for Round 16 of Mid South East netball in what will likely be a close game.

Robe’s strength in the goal circle through Halle Carter and Sarah Laurie will mean Kalangadoo defenders Reanna Wetherall and Lauren Kain will have to work overtime to shut down their influence.

Down the other end of the court Abbey Duncan and Kori Collins combine well and shoot with accuracy for the Magpies.

They are fed well from outside the circle by Jayde Peacock and Kirsty Egan.

The match up of Lucy Perkins and Sophie Wrightson on the wing will be one to watch, with both fighting for every ball.

After a tough game Kalangadoo will come away with the win again, but Robe will not go down without a fight.

MOUNT BURR v NANGWARRY

The Saints head to Mount Burr this weekend to face off against the Mozzies.

The defensive combination of Mount Burr’s Madi Haggett and Olivia Dean has proven to be a formidable force this season and they will put the pressure on for Tahlia Wilson and Ange Pratt.

Nangwarry’s Kylie Heaver works hard for every possession and feeds into the circle with ease.

The tussle between Nangwarry’s Hayley Burner and Mount Burr’s Laura Schultz through the centre will be one to watch, as both players fight for every pass and chase loose balls with determination.

Mozzies Ebony Clark and Zoe Brown combine well in the goal circle and Saints’ defenders will have to work hard to shut them down.

Mount Burr will finish the day with the points.

KONGORONG v HATHERLEIGH

The Eagles head down to Kongorong on Saturday to face off against the young Hawks.

Hatherleigh’s defensive combination of Demi Vanderhorst, Lara MacGregor and Chelsea Galpin has proven difficult for oppositions to find avenues to goal.

Tilah Buckingham and Evie Sealey combine well in the goal circle for the Hawks and both shoot with accuracy.

They will need to be at their best again, while the height of the Kongorong defensive line through Emily Lightbody and Riley Buckingham will also be looked to.

They will need to provide a challenge for Hatherleigh’s Tegan Telfer and Erin Watson as they look to feed into the goal circle.

The added pressure of Lynley Page on the circle edge will also create more pressure on the feeding, but Hatherleigh’s attack line will rise to the challenge.

After a tough battle all down the court, the Eagles will come away with the win.
