Bombers looking to bounce back from shock loss
Bushies aiming to take out Power
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.
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.
