Round five of Wimmera Netball Association sees Horsham Demons take on Warrack Eagles in a rematch of last year’s grand final, where the Eagles came back in the dying minutes of the game to score a one-goal win over the Demons.
The Demons will be itching for revenge, and with both teams yet to experience a loss in the 2016 season, this match is sure to be a thriller.
Young Demons defender Georgia Hiscock will no doubt be facing a rematch against goalie Megan Werner, who played a significant part in her team’s grand final victory last year.
Werner looks to be combining well with Briodi McKenzie in goals, and has the experience to make Hiscock work hard for a win.
At the other end of the court the Eagles must rely on Jessica Kelly and Kiani Stewart in defence, to lock down talented Demons goal-scorer Emma Buwalda, who smashed out 39 goals at the weekend against Horsham Saints.
Roos promising
In the Northern reaches of the Wimmera, Nhill will make the short trek to take on Dimboola at Dimboola Recreation Reserve.
Dimboola suffered a narrow one-goal loss to the Eagles last week in a promising game, and its new team looks to be settling well. Despite a third quarter slump against the Eagles, the Roos came out with a blistering fourth quarter that nearly won them the game. They will be keen to put four solid quarters together when they take on Nhill On Saturday.
Goal shooter Tamara Exell put together a respectful 28 goals against the Eagles, and should prove a handful for Nhill defenders Tarrah Dodds and Emma Dickinson, who are probably still recovering from the challenge of containing Minyip-Murtoa’s goalies last week.
