Bombers look­ing to bounce back from shock loss

Bushies aim­ing to take out Power

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Sport -

BON­NIE Doon will need to bounce back quickly from a one-goal loss to North Wan­garatta last week­end to stay in touch of a top-six lad­der po­si­tion.

The Bombers were sim­ply out­gunned by an up and about Hawks last week, but get to im­me­di­ately re­deem them­selves to­mor­row when they tackle Be­nalla All Blacks.

The Pan­thers have shown tremen­dous im­prove­ment this sea­son and will take plenty of con­fi­dence from see­ing North Wan­garatta de­feat their op­po­nents.

Bon­nie Doon stamped its in­ten­tions of play­ing and win­ning a fi­nal as their aim for 2018.

The re­turn of Jo Sheri­dan will prove piv­otal to the Bombers’ chances.

Bon­nie Doon de­feated Be­nalla by 16 goals, 57-41 in the first round.

In the other games, Moyhu tack­les Greta in a tough match up for the Hop­pers.

The Blues took down Tar­rawingee by nine goals last week, while the Hop­pers were put to task by Gooram­bat go­ing down by 15 goals.

This week will be a good learn­ing curve for the Hop­pers against a strong Blues’ side with the reign­ing pre­miers ex­pect­ing gun de­fender Bec Duryea to re­turn from a ham­string in­jury.

Tar­rawingee will need to be on its game to­mor­row when they take on a plucky Bright side.

The Moun­tain Maids took down King Val­ley by seven goals last week in a great team ef­fort and will be look­ing for a scalp in the Bull­dogs.

The Bull­dogs re­main two games ahead of the Moun­tain Maids on the lad­der, but can­not af­ford to let to­mor­row’s game slip with a dif­fi­cult fin­ish to the sea­son.

King Val­ley will need to be on its toes for to­mor­row’s clash with North Wan­garatta, with the Hawks on the up af­ter se­cur­ing their first win of the sea­son.

Whorouly es­caped Be­nalla by one goal last week and will hope for a much im­proved per­for­mance against Glen­rowan, while Mi­lawa will look to con­tinue its un­beaten run of games when it takes on Gooram­bat.

PHO­TOS: Mel Guy

MIXED FOR­TUNES: North Wan­garatta’s Sarah Stone will be out to try and guide the Hawks to a sec­ond win while (in­set) Bon­nie Doon’s Bec Wa­son is hop­ing her side can bounce back against Be­nalla All Blacks.
