Bulldogs set for Blues’ challenge
THIRD-placed Tarrawingee will be out to prove its finals mettle tomorrow when they host secondplaced Greta in what will be a mouth-watering contest.
The Bulldogs and Blues are locked with a 9-1 record with only Greta’s superior percentage, 236.6 to 199.05, the difference.
Both sides’ only loss has come at the hands of Milawa, with the Blues falling by six goals and the Bulldogs by just two goals in two cracking games of netball.
Tarrawingee is coming off a 36goal win over North Wangaratta, while Greta seemingly escaped a plucky Goorambat side by nine goals.
With potential match ups between Greta defender Loren Gathercole taking on Tarrawingee shooters Kaylee Seymour or Sarah Bond, while Bulldog defender Nellie Purches looks set to take on Taylah Reidy in a great challenge.
A win tomorrow would effectively decide a top-two finish for the victorious side with both clubs set for encounters with the Demons later on in the year.
The Bulldogs will also celebrate former coach Lauren Flynn’s 50th match.
In the other games, North Wangaratta put together an awesome performance against Tarrawingee last week and tackle Bonnie Doon at W J Findlay Oval this weekend.
In another belter of a contest, Bright will host King Valley with the Mountain Maids rolling along nicely and into some strong form including a 19-goal win over Bonnie Doon last week.
King Valley pushed Benalla All Blacks away at the right time to win a close game of netball in what will be a great contest.
Moyhu takes on Goorambat, Milawa plays Glenrowan and Benalla hosts Whorouly.
Goorambat will be out to win to keep in touch with the top-six, Milawa takes on eleventh placed Glenrowan, while Benalla will be out to get over the Lions in what will also be a close encounter.
