Nangwarry v Kongorong
After a close match up in round 4, Nangwarry and Kongorong will both be eager to come away with the points this weekend.
The Saints’ Shannon Higgins and Carly Ploenges will put the pressure on for Hawks’ goalies Tilah Buckingham and Evie Sealey.
The strength of Ebony Lawson in the centre for the Saints will force turnovers in the midcourt, creating opportunities for Tahlia Wilson and Ange Pratt to score. Kongorong’s Kate Wright and Rach Perry deliver the ball strongly into their goalies, while Riley Buckingham’s pressure around the goal will create difficulties for the Saints’ midcourt.
In a tight contest either team has the ability and potential to finish the game with the points.
Port MacDonnell v Mount Burr
The Mozzies head down to the bay this weekend where they will be hoping to get another win under their belts, however the Demons will not go down without a fight.
Despite their young age, Madi Haggett and Olivia Dean are one of the most dominant defensive combinations in the league this season.
Port MacDonnell’s Belinda O’Dine and Alana Winter will have to work hard to curb the influence of Ebony Clark in the goal circle, while limiting Zoe Brown’s options at goal.
Kirby Carrison and Brooke Williams combine well in the goal circle for the Demons but will have to fight for every opportunity against the Mozzies’ defence.
Hatherleigh v Tantanoola
Hatherleigh heads to Tantanoola with something to prove on Saturday after their round 4 loss.
The Tigers Kate Bromley and Tayla Rowe are a tough defensive combination and the Eagles’ Abby Wight and Maddie Pulmer will have to score from every opportunity, fighting for rebounds and loose balls.
Hatherleigh’s Demi Vanderhorst and Lara MacGregor’s pressure in the defensive circle will mean the Tigers’ Casey Walker and Madi Kelly will have to work hard to feed their goalies accurately.
Emma Gould and Jami Walker’s accurate shooting is a focal point for Tantanoola and will mean Vanderhorst and MacGregor will have to be at their best to limit scoring opportunities.
Robe v Glencoe
Robe hosts Glencoe in what is set to be the match of the 13th Mid South East netball round with both teams coming off wins last weekend.
The match-ups across the court will be vital, with Donna Jaeschke and Annie Hunter battling in the centre.
The Murphies’ Jenna Paproth and Malinda Markiewicz are a formidable goalie combination and their accuracy will not leave many rebounds for Robe’s Ellen Ramke and Emma Grant.
Down the other end of the court the Roosters’ new goalie combination of Halle Carter and Sarah Laurie is one to watch.
Sarah Edwards and Chantelle Cocks for Glencoe will work tirelessly to limit the potential for Robe’s shooters to score and will fight for every rebound.
With a tight battle ensured, the outcome of this game could go either way.
