Magpies hit court running to start 2024 season

Magpies hit court running to start 2024 season

Reigning premiers Kalangadoo have staked their claim at the top of the Mid South East Netball Association ladder after two rounds.

The Magpies sit undefeated at the top of the ladder after round 2, having accounted for Port MacDonnell and Mount Burr.

This week Kalangadoo will host Hatherleigh, with the Eagles currently sitting fifth on the ladder.

Already the Magpies are taking the court with what appears to be a seamless roster, boasting talent from end to end.

The Pies are coming off a 54-30 win at the Burr, while Hatherleigh accounted for Kongorong 57-36.

It will be Kalangadoo’s first home game of the season, having played away to enable court surface work to be undertaken.

In the battle of the birds the Magpies should prove too strong for the Eagles.

In round 3 Kongorong will host Robe, in what appears to be a slightly lopsided contest.

The Roosters are coming off a draw with Glencoe at the seaside, while the Hawks went down 36-57 to the Eagles.

Both sides will be looking for their first win of the season, but in what will be another battle of the birds, the Roosters should prove too strong for the Hawks, despite it being played at Kongorong’s home court.

Bottom of the ladder Nangwarry will have a tough match on its hands when it hosts Mount Burr.

The Saints suffered a solid defeat at the hands of Port Mac on Saturday, going down 4-50.

The young Saints are still finding their groove, something that may take several weeks for the side to achieve.

And while the Demons handed Nangwarry a netball lesson, as long as something is learned from it then no harm was done.

Meanwhile, Mount Burr is coming off a decent loss to Kalangadoo, having gone down to the Pies by 24.

The Burr is sitting sixth on the ladder after splitting its results in the first two rounds.

Meanwhile, Glencoe will host Tantanoola in what is set to be a great tussle.

The last time the two sides met was in the 2023 preliminary final, when Tantanoola took the honours.

Tant will be looking to do the same again but know that it will not come easy.

The Tigers are still settling into their groove with some new combinations but after a week off they will have fresh legs and be ready for the Murphies.

Port Mac has the bye this week.
