Bull­dogs set for Blues’ chal­lenge

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Netball -

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.
