Fi­nals fight looms

Dodges Ferry clash cru­cial for Ea­gles

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - SPORT - KYLE WISNIEWSKI

its train­ing out­side the club and spent a night at the Ho­bart Aquatic Cen­tre pool and a night at the Der­went Val­ley PCYC.

This week the team has been work­ing hard on the track in prepa­ra­tion for Dodges Ferry.

Both teams sit out­side the top five on six wins, with Ho­bart and Cygnet nar­rowly edg­ing them out, who are both on seven wins.

What hurts New Nor­folk is that it has three games left to play, whereas Ho­bart and Dodges Ferry have four each to play.

What helps the Ea­gles is that it plays Dodges Ferry and Cygnet in two of those three games, and the other is against a win­less Brighton.

Parker ac­knowl­edges that play­ing two sides that his team is bat­tling against for a fi­nals spot in the last three games is help­ful.

“Get­ting to play teams that are around the same po­si­tion than us puts our sea­son in our hands,” Parker said.

“Ho­bart has a pretty tough run. They have to play Lind­is­farne, Huonville and Clare­mont.

“It could come down to our fi­nal game against Cygnet to see who gets a spot in the fi­nal.

“But we have to take it one week at a time and our fo­cus is on the game com­ing up.”
