Robe faces its toughest test of the season

Robe faces its toughest test of the season

The Mid South East Netball Association is again shaping up for an action packed round 4 this week end.

This round will see Kalangadoo travelling to the seaside to take on Robe, while Tantanoola will host Kongorong, Hatherleigh will welcome Nangwarry and Port Mac will head to Mount Burr.

Robe v Kalangadoo

The Magpies continued their undefeated season with a win over Hatherleigh at Kalangadoo last week, while Robe had a solid victory against Kongorong, finishing up 72-44.

The Pies had to shake up their on court positions last week, with youngster Lara Munro stepping into goal attack due to the absence of Abbey Duncan.

Munro combined flawlessly with shooter Ebony McDiarmid, while Georgia Duncan filled Munro’s GK position, where she dominated with fellow youngster Georgia Gentile.

Robe’s strong midfield will pose a challenge for the visiting Pies, with plenty of experience to feed the Roosters’ shooters.

Robe will call on the experience of Annie Hunter, Lucy Perkins and Sophie Bates to hold strong through the middle and carry the ball down court.

Tantanoola v Kongorong

Tantanoola will host Kongorong, with the Tigers losing to Glencoe by 10 last week, while Kongorong could not match it with the Roosters.

The Hawks are yet to win a game and sit eighth on the ladder, while the Tigers sit in sixth.

Tant will again have the accuracy of Emma Gould in the circle, leading the Tigers’ shooting attack.

Kongorong’s Zara Vonstanke’s drives to the circle are pivotal in helping the Hawks transition the ball fast and score, while at the other end Emily Lightbody and Rach Perry are sure to combine in defence and cause pressure in the Tigers’ circle.

Hatherleigh v Nangwarry

Hatherleigh will be at home to Nangwarry this weekend, in what seems likely to be a one-sided affair.

Hatherleigh went down to Kalangadoo last week, losing 57-40, while the young Saints side improved during their match against Mount Burr, despite going down 19-60.

The Saints are yet to win a game, but all indications are the young side is starting to gel as the season progresses.

Last week Nangwarry’s shooters Sheridan Sakkers and Lacey Neale finessed their range as the game wore on, a good sign for things to come.

The Eagles will again rely on centre court playmaker Tegan Telfer to marshall the troops, with star shooter Bree Harris seemingly able to nail any shot from within the circle.

Port MacDonnell v Mount Burr

Port MacDonnell will have fresh legs coming off the bye and will travel to Mount Burr.

The Bay has split its results so far this season, sitting fifth of the ladder with one win and one loss, while the Mozzies are sitting third with two wins and a

Mount Burr’s Danika Shepherd has been on fire this year, shooting up a storm, while at the other end of the court her teammate Megan Thiele will be sure to have a huge impact for the Mozzies at GK to make the Bay’s goalies work overtime.

The Demons have a young, new look side who have already shown a strong start to the season with plenty of skill.

This match is sure to be one that goes down to the wire.

Glencoe has the bye.
