Ta­ble-top games in A Grade

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Wim­mera Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion heavyweigh­ts will go toe to toe in defin­ing A Grade en­coun­ters this week­end.

Minyip-mur­toa sits on top of the lad­der by per­cent­age from Ararat and takes on a Hor­sham side sud­denly four points off the pace in fourth po­si­tion.

War­rack Ea­gles, mean­while, fresh from a con­fi­dence-boost­ing win against the Demons, now con­front un­beaten Ararat in Ararat.

Hor­sham stum­bled badly in a test against War­rack Ea­gles be­fore an as­so­ci­a­tion bye last week and will be keen to re­turn to the win­ners list.

The Demons found them­selves 10 goals off the pace last out­ing and are un­likely to find any respite against the Bur­ras.

Minyip-mur­toa’s last re­sult was a solid win over Nhill.

Ararat has had a mag­i­cal start to the sea­son and is play­ing with re­newed con­fi­dence but it too will find the Ea­gles hard to crack.

Reign­ing pre­miers Hor­sham Saints, who scored an 11-goal win against Stawell be­fore the break and sit fifth on the lad­der, meet sixth-placed Nhill in what looms as an in­trigu­ing bat­tle at Nhill’s Davis Park.

Three sides have yet to win a game, but it will be ei­ther sev­enth-placed Dim­boola or eighth­placed Stawell that fi­nally gets to cheer at the fi­nal whis­tle at Stawell’s Cen­tral Park.

South­ern Mallee Gi­ants, which still has plenty of tongues wag­ging af­ter lofty for­mer na­tional player Janelle Law­son lined up for the Mallee com­bine against Ararat, has a bye.
