NETBALL 35 Eagles chase win over Kalangadoo Hatherleigh looks to bounce back LAST weekend proved eventful across the courts in the Mid South East Netball Association with a draw between second and third on the ladder and some close results among those in the bottom half. The competition has certainly heated up with the majority of teams seeing themselves a chance as a top four contender. Port MacDonnell has the bye this weekend following an impressive and even clash with the Eagles last weekend. Hatherleigh v Kalangadoo ON TARGET: Tantanoola’s Jami Walker will need to be on target if she is to help her team to a win over Glencoe. WITH a draw last weekend against the Demons, the Eagles will set their sights high this weekend as they aim to concrete their spot in the top three. At the end of last season these teams were one all through the finals series and the Eagles will be looking to reassert their authority this weekend. Both sides have a number of quick and athletic junior players who hit the court each week. Demi Smith and Annabel Brooks are both quick and agile for the Eagles and create headaches for their opponents with their fast paced game and tight defence. Erin Watson and Sarah Allen are athletic and strong players who attack the ball hard and will make tough going for Kalangadoo’s youngsters in Mikaila Pitt and Jade Lythgo. These two girls play cleverly and fast and read the play well to intercept the ball with strength. With the Pie’s Jayde Peacock thrown into the mix, this makes for an impressive match through the centre court area with plenty of athleticism, skill and determination displayed by all. The battle between the TOUGH JOB: Mount Burr’s Ebony Clark will have a tough job in the goal circle this week when her team faces Kongorong.

At the other end of the court Hatherleigh’s Kaitlyn Smith will have her work cut out against Melissa Russell and Georgina Brooks will have to work hard for the Eagle’s against an in form Caroline Davey. The Pies are in such good form they will make it tough for the Eagles and they will take the points in a close encounter. Nangwarry v Robe WHILE Robe has had more success than the Saints so far this season, Nangwarry is showing some of the impressive form seen at the Pre-season cup. The match up between Robe’s Keeley Mason in goal shooter and the Saint’s Kayla Gray will be tight, with both girls using their height well and holding their space in the goal circle with strength. Robe’s Hannah Perkins will also have to work overtime on the defensive wing as she comes up against the Saint’s Cassie Dinnison, who leads her team with tenacity and has a never stop attitude as she attacks the ball. Her goalies work together well and rarely miss, which will make the job of Robe’s Chloe Dawson a tough one. Through the centre court, Robe’s Kate Shubert and the Saint’s Teresa Stewart will have an even battle as they both play fast but strategic games. Given that Robe has defeated some of the top four sides this season, they will take the points, but the determination of the Saints will make this the match of the round. Kongorong v Mount Burr MOUNT Burr stepped back into the top four following a win over Tantanoola last weekend. This will give them confidence as they come up against the Hawks, who suffered a massive loss last weekend to the top side, Kalangadoo. These two teams will be better matched, with Sarah Lucas tight in defence for the Hawks making it difficult for Hayley Agnew and Ebony Clark to find position under the ring for the Mozzies. The battle through the centre court between Courtney Pink and Mount Burr’s youngster Chloe Vanderhorst will be fast paced. Tabatha Sanderson has also been impressive in goals for the Hawks, but she will have to use her height to her advantage this weekend as she comes up against Heidi Clarke, whose agility gives her plenty of height and allows her to cover the goal circle well. Ellie Waters has been strong on the defensive wing for Kongorong and will make this weekend tough for the Burr’s Kate Nowak as she tries to feed the ball into her goalies. The Mozzies will have more confidence in this contest which will give them the edge and allow them to take the points. Tantanoola v Glencoe THESE teams occupy sixth and seventh places on the ladder currently and both have had close matches against those above them, which will make this match not only critical for both sides, but great to watch. Sarah Kasparian and Donna Edwards are strong in defence for the Murphies and will make it tough for the Tigers Jami Walker and Jacqui Matthews, who will need to be accurate to counteract the height of Kasparian. The Tigers have had young- sters Alex Lucas and Casey Walker hit the court for them on the wing, and they will be well matched this weekend against the Murphies youngster in Laura Edwards who drives hard onto the circle and feeds the ball with accuracy to her goalies. Through the centre court, Tantanoola’s Casey Arney will have a strong battle with Glencoe’s Ashlea Edwards as both attack the ball hard and drive with speed through the centre. In Glencoe’s attacking end, Ebony McDiarmid uses her height well in the goal ring, but she will need to be on her game as Simone Little and Kate Bromley read the play well for the Tigers. While the home court advantage may help the Tigers, the Murphies are likely to steal the points in a close one.
