Friday night footy showcase

Round seven of the Limestone Coast Women’s Football League season will take place at two venues this weekend.

Millicent’s McLaughlin Park will host two matches on Friday night while a Sunday double header will be played at Kongorong.

North Gambier will play Mundulla on neutral territory, with Mundulla sitting on top of the ladder while North will be looking to get back on the winner’s list after last week’s narrow defeat.

Mundulla has strength across every position on the ground and has the capability to turn the game on its head, however North also has the fire power to do the same.

It will be an intense battle between the two Tigers teams, with North needing Laura Chester, Chloe Perryman, Fiona Young and Luca Roulstone to stand up and Mundulla will be led by Erin Horsnell, Casey McElroy, Kellsie Hinge and Zoe Hawker.

Also taking to the field on Friday night, Millicent will battle against South Gambier and both teams match up well.

The Saints are coming off a big loss last week and the Demons are on a high after getting a first win and will be looking to score another come Friday night.

This is another game that could go either way and a tight tussle will be on for the Saints and Demons under lights.

The Demons will need the prime movers in Jarrah Altschwager, Sophie Wight, Chloe Lines and Dakota Trotter working the ball, while Millicent will look to Lauren Potter, Kelsie Wilkinson, Megan Tilley and Kalli Brown.

On Sunday, the round will continue with a winless Kalangadoo playing Kybybolite at 11am.

The Magpies are battling this season, but continue to put the numbers on the ground and provide a 110% contest, while Kyby are sitting in sixth position on the ladder with two wins from five games.

Kalangadoo is capable of playing some good football and will need to be focused otherwise the Tigers will pounce at every opportunity.

Kyby is making steady progress after last year’s grand final win and will rely on Dellie Brown, Sophie Hentschke, Jamie Wachtel and Emily Cattuzzo being fresh, while Kalangadoo will look to its leaders in Abby Thompson, Taysha Marshall, Kristina Simmonds and Harmony Kennett.

To round out the weekend of footy it will be the home team Kongorong playing host to Penola at 12.35pm.

The Hawks are coming of two big losses in the past two weeks and will want to put on a show at home in front of its supporters, while the Eagles are soaring with a win last week and will want to spoil the party.

Kongorong is capable of upsetting sides if it plays well and sticks to the game plan, while Penola can start slowly and flick a switch.

The Hawks are young and will rely on the leadership of Jasmine McKinnon, Janita Galloway, Evie Sealey and Jade Longbottom for the win, while Caroline McGrath, Heidi Berkin, Ellise Berkin, Lyndall Feast will have to be spot on for the Eagles to get the points.
