Demons take red hot form into cross-border clash against Cats

Demons take red hot form into cross-border clash against Cats

South Gambier will head across the border this week to take on Casterton Sandford.

The Dees are coming off a huge win last week, beating the reigning premiers at home by one point and they will be looking to keep the momentum going into this game.

The Cats are coming off a rough loss to West last week where they showed flashes of good footy, beating the Roos in two quarters.

For South to win they will need to have everyone contributing again.

Last week everyone played their part which made it hard for the Saints to contain the Demons’ momentum.

They will need to improve in the backline for this game, last week they were lucky that Millicent were struggling with their goal kicking as they kicked 18 points in the game.

Casterton have shown they can win games but they have struggled to consistently compete at a high level for every quarter.

If the Cats can compete hard for all four quarters then they might upset the Dees.

East Gambier V West Gambier

The Roos will head to the Kennel to take on the Doggies this week.

West are coming off a good win against the Cats where they were challenged for most of the game, while East are coming off a tough defeat to the Tigers and are still searching for their first win.

Last week West played a great team game and shared the ball well, having nine players kicking a goal.

Mitch Cornolo was a game changer for the Roos and has found some good form lately, kicking four goals last week and two goals the week prior.

West will need him to step up again this week.

East’s Carl Slape and Riley Flamank have been great for the Doggies and have given them lots of good play.

Last week Slape kicked six goals and the week before that Flamank also kicked six.

The Doggies will need them to both be at their best this week if they want to claim their first win.

Millicent V North Gambier

North Gambier will head to Millicent to take on the Saints in last year’s grand final rematch.

After a rough start to the season North have begun to figure things out, winning back to back games.

Although both those games were against the bottom two teams it’s still a good sign they are getting the job done.

Millicent will be hungry to redeem themselves after last week’s one point loss to the Dees.

The Saints will be looking to erase their mistakes from last week like their goal kicking, after kicking 18 points.

They probably would have won the game if they converted on more of their shots, especially the shots from the third quarter.

The Tigers are coming off a good win where everyone got involved.

They had eight players kick a goal with Sam Stafford kicking four.

They will need to do this again as it will make it hard for the Saints to defend a team that has so many scoring threats.
