Eagles set to swoop in battle of the birds

Hatherleigh v Robe

Hatherleigh hosts Robe this weekend in the match of the 11th round of Mid South East netball.

Both teams will come out firing, hoping to come away with the win.

After losing Tori Gluyas to an ankle injury last weekend, Robe’s Sarah Laurie and Demi Carter will have to work hard in the goal circle.

Lara MacGregor and Demi Vanderhorst’s pressure in the circle will force the Roosters to make every possession count.

The tussle between Tegan Telfer and Annie Hunter down the court will be tough, with both players fighting hard for the ball with good drive down the court.

The Eagles shooters Maddie Pulmer and Abby Wight will combine well and shoot with accuracy, however Emma Grant and Georgia Perkins will fight for every rebound.

With changes having been made to both teams since last round this game could go either way.

Glencoe v Nangwarry

Second place Glencoe takes on a winless Nangwarry at home.

The Saints took it up to Hatherleigh for the first quarter last week but struggled to string a four quarter performence etogether.

The Murphies will utilise the strength of Sarah Edwards and Chantelle Cocks in their defensive circle to put the pressure on for Nangwarry’s Tahlia Wilson and Ange Pratt.

Any turnovers by Glencoe will be transitioned smoothly down the court to Jenna Paproth and Malinda Markiewicz in the goal circle.

Shannon Higgins and Carly Ploenges will work hard for the Saints to turn balls over and give their goalies an opportunity to score.

Glencoe should come away with the points at the end of the game.

Kongorong v Mount Burr

Mount Burr head down the Kongorong with both teams coming off losses last week, they will both be eager to get more points on the board.

The Mozzies’ Madi Haggett and Olivia Dean will apply pressure in the defensive circle, making Tilah Buckingham and Evie Sealey earn every possession and goal.

Down the other end of the court, Riley Buckingham and Sarah Lucas will be working tirelessly to curb the influence of Ebony Clark’s accuracy, combined with Zoe Brown in goals.

Both Rach Perry and Laura Schultz will work the ball down the court for their respective teams and will feed the ball with accuracy into their goalies.

After a well fought game, Mount Burr should come away with the win.

Port MacDonnell v Kalangadoo

Port MacDonnell are set to host the Magpies in a big clash this weekend.

The Demons’ Kirby Carrison and Toni Williams combine well in the goal circle; however the pressure of Kalangadoo’s Reanna Wetherall and Lauren Kain will be hard to battle.

Alana Winter’s height and strength in the Demons’ defensive circle will be key in shutting down the accurate shooting of Abbey Duncan and Kori Collins for Kalangadoo.

Jayde Peacock and Liza Mutch will have a good tussle through the midcourt, with both players vying for possession of the ball and hoping to force turnovers.

Peacock has strong drive to the circle and will feed her goalies with accuracy, with pressure applied by Demons Mutch and Jess Lynch.

Kalangadoo should finish the game with another win.
