Kongorong v Mount Burr
Last time these two sides met it was on Mount Burr’s home ground and Kongorong took it up to the Mozzies looking likely to secure the win, but a second half fade out cost the Hawks dearly.
The Hawks will be ruing that fact last week they took the fight up to the Magpies beaerly, but costly errors accounted to a large loss and the players will look to regroup this weekend.
On the other hand, Mount Burr has been a dark horse taking down some big scalps, however only just got over the line against Glencoe.
For the Hawks a four-quarter effort is needed where the likes of Paul Ellis, Aaron Lightbody, Harry Evans, Matt Cordy and Faser Brewster must contribute while the Mozzies will also take the same approach and need James Wallis, Kalan Bevan, Jacob Gregory and Tyler Stanley to be outstanding.
Glencoe v Nangwarry
This is another game that will be a back and forward style of play and the Murphies do not mind the ‘in and under’ tough stuff along with the Saints in an eighth versus ninth contest.
Glencoe had one finger on the win last week but could not manage to get over the line in a loss while Nangwarry was handed a football lesson from Hatherleigh.
Coaches from both sides will be excited about the contest to see if they can remain off the bottom of the table and enjoy a win.
Back in round 3 it was Glencoe that took the points in a tight scoring contest where Patrick Mitchell, Dylan Pfitzner and Brodie Glynn stood up over the course of the match.
They will need a repeat performance while the creativity from Joel Virtanen, Andrew Hyland, Isaac Raymond and Thomas Vanderhorst will be needed for the Saints to get their second win.
Hatherleigh v Robe
This game will hang in the balance with both teams fresh from victories.
On paper both sides do match up well, but the proof of the pudding is on the ground where the talking is done.
Currently Hatherleigh sits second on the ladder while Robe rounds out the top five and it will be a survival of the fittest in Saturday’s clash.
The Roosters will find the wide-open space of the Hatherleigh ground to their liking with the run and carry of the small brigade and the Eagles will use the main corridor and attack well.
Robe will look to dominate in the middle from Tom Wachtel and have Jed Jarrett, Kaden Woodward and Jasper Barritt focused and primed.
Jake Dowdy will look to his core group in Bradley Mitchell, Zach Jones, Joe Rayson and Jack Skeer to be on point for the Eagles.
Port MacDonnell v Kalangadoo
In a Mid South Eastern Football League match that will sort the men out from the boys Port MacDonnell and Kalangadoo will provide some entertainment for the avid footy lover.
The Demons have been on a charge in recent weeks and will be keen to get back amongst it after the bye, while the Magpies are coming off a big win at home against a rebuilding Kongorong and want to remain the benchmark.
Port MacDonnell will look to stalwart Will MacDonald’s leadership in the middle, while having the height of Tim Sullivan down forward as a focal point and stretch the “Doos” backline, while the run of Kalangdoo’s Tye McManus, Lachy Jones and Patrick Davis will provide headaches along with Michael Kreiger’s goal kicking.
