Baobabs hope for better performanc­e in Pretoria

- Herbert Rachuene

Limpopo Baobabs netball head coach Emily Mathosa believes her team can bounce back from the defeats they suffered during the first leg of the Telkom Netball League.

The Baobabs managed to win one match in the league, at Durban’s Olive Convention Centre, when they beat the Eastern Cape Comets 46-10 in their opening match. After their win, they went down against Western Cape’s Tornados who beat them 44-39 on May 1.

In their third match they lost 57-39 to Eastern Cape Aloes and they hope for better performanc­es in the remaining fixtures of the league scheduled for Pretoria’s Heartfelt Arena on May 20-22, May 27-29, June 3-5, June 10-12 and June 15-19.

Mathosa is confident that her team will get the desired results. “I don’t think we had a bad start, it is just mistakes that costed us the games. We played well throughout the matches but lost most of them in the last minutes. We will play against the same teams in the second leg and we want to do well against them this time around,” Mathosa said and added they are aiming for the top four spots of the competitio­n.

“We want to finish in the top so that we qualify for the semi-finals of the league. We have good players led by an excellent technical team to help us achieve that goal.”
