It was a hard day at the office for the two Millicent sides who travelled to Penola to do battle in the last of the home and away matches. The transition from our fast greens to Penola’s new slower surface was a fearsome task for most of our players. Division 2 Red LYNN Scudds’ team of Judy Lowe, Max Richards and Mary Campbell was slow to start. However, they were only four behind at the lunch break. In the afternoon Penola took control of the match to win 27 shots to 17. Ella Pietersma’s team of Carol Gibbs, Jan Buhlmann and Carlene Godden led early in the game and were all square at lunch. At end 17 Penola took the lead. By winning seven ends straight, Penola surged ahead winning 28 shots to 13. Millicent Division 2 Red has finished on top of the ladder. The side play Penola at Millicent next Friday and will be looking to reversing the outcome. Division 3 The slow surface at Penola was not to the liking of our players. The team of Fay Richards (s), Lorraine Madden, Norman Peart and Dorothy Harkness found the going tough, but managed to score 16 shots against Penola’s 30. Maureen Elton (s), Robin Rolfe, Joan Ellis and Liz Carnellor had a tough morning. After lunch they settled but Penola were well in command of the game, winning 32 shots to 11.

TWO Kowree-NaracoorteTatiara clubs will join the six Western Border Football League clubs for this year’s Elastoplast Cup pre-season competition. In a first for the competition, the one day carnival will be hosted by the North Gambier Football Club at Vansittart Park on March 14, 19 days before the season proper is scheduled to start. Padthaway and Naracoorte will fly the flag for the KNTFL. While match scheduling and playing guidelines are yet to be announced by the WBFL, there are three possible scenarios according to league secretary David Heard. It is most likely the eight clubs will be randomly drawn into two games each with the two highest qualifiers meeting in the grand final. There is also the possibil- ity of two equal pools of four clubs playing three round robin qualifying games to be followed by a grand final playoff. However the impact of three qualifying matches may prove too big a burden for the participating clubs. The other alternative that the league is currently considering is altering the tournament structure to simple knockout format, which works evenly with eight entries. Naracoorte played in the 2014 Elastoplast Cup which was played at Millicent’s McLaughlin Park. Naracoorte defeated North Gambier in its opening game before being thrashed by boost numbers Two KNTFL clubs in Elastoplast Cup MORRIS South in its second outing. West Gambier won the 2014 title with a six-point grand final victory over Millicent. The Western Border Netball Association will also compete in the Elastoplast Cup. Sponsor product prizepacks valued at more than $2500 will be on offer for the winning clubs. With three premierships and a winning strike rate of 71.43pc, North Gambier is clearly the most successful of all Elastoplast Cup combatants in the first nine years of the tournament. Millicent and former WBFL club, Imperials are the next best performed teams with two premierships each. With only five wins from 18 games – and no grand final appearances – Casterton/ Sandford has the worst record of all clubs.
