Natimuk United sets up clash with flag favourite Edenhope-Apsley


Natimuk United held off Laharum on Saturday to set up a second semi-final showdown with Horsham District Football Netball League minor premier Edenhope-Apsley.

The Demons came out firing at Edenhope, playing focused netball and moving the ball well.

Although they were strong in attack, their defenders were unable to account for the height of Natimuk shooter Shannon Couch, who easily collected rebounds in the ring.

The lead see-sawed in an even first half, with the Ewes taking a narrow two-goal lead into half-time.

Early in the third quarter, the Demons brought co-coach Caitlin Story into goal attack, shifting fellow coach Maddie Iredell into wing attack.

It was Story’s first game since breaking a finger against Pimpinio in round 12.

The Ewes extended their lead to five goals in the term and continued their momentum in the last quarter to win by 11 goals.

Defenders Jo Taylor and Casey Vanstan were influential, taking some strong rebounds and intercepts, while Emily Hateley provided plenty of drive in centre.

Nikki Ervin top-scored for Laharum in her first game back from injury, shooting 19 goals.
