Glencoe and Robe shape up for match of round

The game of the round this week will feature Glencoe and Robe, with nothing separating the two sides when they last met. The other matches should be foregone conclusions, with Hatherleigh destined to outclass Kongorong, Kalangadoo should easily account for Mount Burr, and Port Mac set to steamroll Nangwarry.

Glencoe v Robe

Glencoe will host Robe in round 11 this week, with both sides out to prove their ascendancy following their draw in Round 2.

Glencoe will be looking to continue its winning ways coming off a solid win over Hatherleigh last week, while Robe went down to Tantanoola.

The Murphies currently sit second on the ladder, having only lost one game, while the Roosters are in fourth position.

However, Glencoe has been playing a tough brand of netball since they last met, only falling to reigning premiers Kalangadoo, while Robe’s record sits at 5-3.

The Murphies should prove too strong for the Roosters, but it should still be a close match.

Kongorong v Hatherleigh

The battle of the big birds will take place on Saturday, as the Hawks host the Eagles.

Both Kongorong and Hatherleigh are coming off losses last week, with the Hawks going down to Mount Burr and the Eagles dealt a defeat by Glencoe.

When these sides met in round 2, Hatherleigh took the win by 21 goals.

Kongorong currently sits second last on the ladder, having only won the one game when it defeated Nangwarry, while Hatherleigh is in seventh spot.

The Eagles have only registered two wins for the season, but that should become three on Saturday as they are sure to prove too strong for the Hawks.

Kalangadoo v Mount Burr

The Magpies and the Mozzies are coming off good wins last week, when Kalangadoo downed the Demons and Mount Burr proved too strong for Kongorong.

The reigning premiers will look to continue their winning form when they host Mount Burr, with the Mozzies currently fifth on the ladder.

Mount Burr has registered five wins for the season, compared with the Pies’ eight, with Kalangadoo shaping up to register a comfortable win on Saturday.

The Pies have the right mix of experience and youth in their side, which augers well for the club.

Nangwarry v Pt MacDonnell

Nangwarry will have fresh legs on Saturday, while the Bay will be looking for a win after going down to Kalangadoo last week.

Unfortunately it will take a lot more than fresh legs for the Saints to get across the line in front of the Demons, who are sixth on the ladder.

There is no doubt the young Saints side is still building, with plenty of developing talent in the side.

Hopefully they can see this year as a rebuilding period, and continue to build into the future.

Tantanoola has the bye.
