Glencoe hosts Robe in what is set to be the match of the fourth round of Mid South Eastern netball with both teams coming off wins.
There are great match-ups across the court in particular the midcourt battle between Donna Jaeschke and Annie Hunter and in the goal circle between Tori Gluyas and Sarah Edwards.
Midcourt turnovers will be the deciding factor as all four goalies are accurate and neither of the defensive ends will give an inch.
Jenna Paproth and Chantelle Cocks are a formidable goalie combination and their experience may prove too much for Robe’s Ellen Ramke and Alannah Jennings. After a tough four quarters Robe should come out on top.
With both sides looking to put their first win on the board Kongorong will take on Nangwarry at home.
Hayley Burner and Shannon Higgins will put the pressure on for Kongorong’s goalies Tilah Buckingham and Megan Bowering.
The strong drive from Burner out of defence will help Nangwarry to bring the ball down the court, with Kylie Heaver feeding into the goalies.
Riley Buckingham’s pressure in and around the goal will create difficulties for Nangwarry’s midcourt.
In a tight contest either team has the ability and potential to gain the points.
Mt Burr will look to boost their percentage this week when they take on the Port MacDonnell Demons at home due to a fixture change.
Madi Hagget and Olivia Dean despite their young age are showing maturity in the defensive end for the Mozzies.
Megan Hein and Alana Winter will have to curb the influence of Ebony Clark in the circle whilst also limiting Zoe Brown’s options to shoot.
Laura Schultz’ drive down the court and ability to feed to her goalies is an asset to the Mozzies.
Mount Burr will be looking to cement their position in the top four.
Tantanoola will be well rested after two weeks off and be ready to come out firing against Hatherleigh on the weekend.
The Eagles will need to put their best defenders on the court against Tant’s Emma Gould and Jami Walker, who combine well together in the circle. Hatherleigh are still struggling to settle their line up while Tantanoola’s side has remained mostly unchanged since 2021.
Hatherleigh are still working on goal combinations and any of the following could line up in the circle, Maddie Redman, Demi Vanderhorst and Abby Wight.
Lara MacGregor has been given the opportunity to lead the Eagles’ defensive end and has relished the challenge.
Kate Bromley and Tayla Rowe will combine well together down in the defensive circle for the Tigers.
Erin Watson lined up at Wing Defence last week and will ensure that Casey Walker earns every possession. In another close game the result could go either way.
