Opportunity to build early momentum

TANTANOOLA V KALANGADOO

The Tigers are at home this week hosting the Magpies. Kalangadoo are coming off a 7 goal win against an impressive Mount Burr while Tant were defeated by 10 goals against Glencoe.

Tantanoola have a strong attack line, Emma Gould was named best in her last outing, she holds well and is accurate on her day. She is well supported by Jami Walker.

They will be made to earn every goal against the Magpies determined defence unit of Chelsea Croser and Chloe Pratt. Tigers Vic Lucas and Casey Walker will need to be at their best to curb the influence of Jayde Peacock and Jane Auld.

Kalangadoo also have juniors Kori Collins and Sophie Wrightson waiting in the wings, both were impressive in the court time they had against Mount Burr.

Youngster Tayla Rowe is proving to be a valuable defender for the Tigers and will be put to the test this week against Kalangadoos talented goalie trio of Melissa Russell, Abbey Duncan or Ebony McDiarmid.

Kalangadoo should take the points from a determined Tigers outfit.

NANGWARRY V GLENCOE

Nangwarry are at home this week and take on Glencoe. Nangwarry got their first points on the board last weekend after defeating Kongorong by 23 goals.

Glencoe had a 10 goal win over Tantanoola. Glencoes Malinda Markiewicz took a hard fall and left the court against the Tigers, she was replaced by Taitlyn Rothe at GA who is a new and handy recruit for the club.

She combined well with Caitlyn Hentschke, Hentschke accurate as always and named in the best for the Murphies. The Murphies will be hoping Markiewicz is fully fit and able to take to the court.

Midcourter Hayley Burner has been impressive for the Saints and will have a great matchup against Glencoes Donna Jeaschke. Jeaschke and sister Ashlea Edwards combine beautifully around the circle and feed their goalies with precision.

Sarah Edwards is always amazing to watch and has been in good form, combining well with youngster Emily Thompson in defence. Nangwarrys goalies Ange Pratt and Cassie Dinnison will need to work hard for their goals.

HATHERLEIGH V KONGORONG

Hatherleigh are back home this week after a huge Anzac weekend at Robe and take on the Hawks. Hatherleigh are two from two after an impressive 18 goal win against Robe at the weekend.

Kongorong are yet to score a win, going down to Nangwarry by 23 goals. Emalee Stokker has been good for Kongorong, named in the best along with defender Emily Lightbody. Stokker combined well with youngster Sarah Beare who showed her versatility playing in the circle and then moving to the midcourt.

Hatherleigh had a tight tussle with Robe until half time but were then able to steady and take control of the game in the second half. Lacey Haines outstanding in goals and named best for the Eagles, Tegan Merrett very strong at WA, earning herself the Eileen Canny Anzac Memorial Medal.

Maddie Redman showed her versatility changing from attack to defence and having an influence on the game at both ends. Kongorong’s goalie combination of Stokker and Beare will need to work hard with the Eagles Maddie Pulmer and Sarah Broodhead in good form.

They will need to shoot accurately as Pulmer and Broodhead are capable of big rebounds. Kongorong lost junior Zara Vonstanke to an ankle injury, they will be hoping she can line up against the Eagles with Lara McGregor and Sarah Faulkner also in great form for the Eagles.

MOUNT BURR V PORT MACDONNELL

Port MacDonnell comes off the bye on the long weekend and heads to Mount Burr. The Demons have had a hard start to the season, facing 2019 Grand Finalists Glencoe and Kalangadoo in their first two matches and now take on the Mozzies who are expected to leap frog into the top 4 this year.

Mount Burr were extremely competitive against Kalangadoo, showing their strength right down the court and proved they will be a serious contender this year. In their last outing, Port Mac tried a couple of different combinations, giving Cody Manning a run at WA and bringing youngster Keyarnah Smith into goals.

Smith combined well with Brooke Williams, while Manning also proved her worth of a position in A Grade. Whichever combination Demons coach Kirby Carrison tries, they will be put to the test against the impressive defence team of Madi Haggett and Heidi Clark.

The midcourt battle likely to be between Demons Michelle Moore and Jess Trench will be good to watch against the Mozzies Ella Falting and Laura Schultz.

Demons recruit Morgan Amy is playing well at her new club and will be tested again this week against the gun Mozzie duo of Ebony Clark and Sarah Nulty. The Demons are still trying different combinations with players from A Reserve, while Mozzies coach Tamara

Haggett would be thrilled with her teams start to season 2021.

Mount Burr hopes to take the points at home. Robe has the bye.
