HDFNL| Round 14: Reigning premier Laharum under pressure

Swifts player Ryan Folkes has eyes only for the ball as he gets airborne during a Horsham District Football Netball League clash against Natimuk United. Folkes featured among the best for the Baggies, who were too good for Natimuk United but will miss out on playing finals this year. Swifts are sitting eighth with four wins but are favourites to notch up back-to-back victories against Noradjuha-Quantong on Saturday. Natimuk United has only two wins to its name and takes on powerful Harrow-Balmoral in its next game.

As the saying goes, poor kicking is poor football, and the ramifications of Saturday’s performance are huge for Horsham District Football Netball League reigning premier Laharum.
The Demons now need to rely on other sides if they are to make second spot after falling to Kalkee at the weekend.
Kicking and managing 2.10 in the first quarter might have ended the Demons’ premiership aspirations.
This week the Laharum side will seek some redemption when it visits a Taylors Lake team that had to work hard to dispose of Pimpinio at the weekend.
Taylors Lake would love nothing more than to inflict further misery on Laharum, and with Gavin Kelm and Deek Roberts dangerous up forward, will be quietly confident of a good showing.
Laharum will be keen to bounce back. Jason Przibilla gives the Demons a key target and with three goals last week is beginning to find form, while Cam Bruce, Cam Streeter and Todd Heynen keep performing.
Kees question
Can Kalkee knock the second-placed side off two weeks in a row?
After disposing of Laharum, Kalkee confronts Jeparit-Rainbow, which jumped into second position courtesy of the Kees’ win. The Storm did a number on Noradjuha-Quantong on the back of nine goals from Ash Clugston and good games from midfielders Elliott Bath and Luke Murphy and ruckman Sam Cranna. They boosted their percentage and jumped a spot on the ladder.
This week looms a different contest as the Storm visits the muddy plains of Kalkee. It will be interesting to see if Jeparit-Rainbow can adapt to the heavy conditions.
Ben Harrison and Steve Schultz led from the front for the Kees last week and they will need to again if they are to stop Clugston, Peter Weir and Murphy from having a big influence on the contest.
It will be interesting to see if Kalkee can continue to build momentum on the eve of finals.
Roos build
Harrow-Balmoral gets a chance to build on its impressive win against Edenhope-Apsley by putting second-bottom placed Natimuk United through the wringer.
On the back of a classy game from Eric Guthrie, the Roos blew the contest wide open after half time. It will be hard to see how the Rams will contain him, Callum Hobbs and Will Plush from winning the midfield battle and regularly slotting the ball down the throat of Hugh Douglas.
A poor second quarter cost the Rams any chance of a victory against Swifts.
Ricky Wilde and Callum Cameron’s names continue to appear in the best-player list for United, but they will need Jesse Wilkinson to double his goals from last week and hope the likes of Alex Ridsdale and Shaun McDonald can have a bigger impact on the scoreboard.
