Harrow-Balmoral has continued its strong run to Horsham District Football Netball League finals, holding off a handy Edenhope-Apsley outfit at the weekend to claim a 13-goal win.
Despite two draws, the Roos are yet to drop a match this season and remain the A Grade competition’s benchmark side.
They will start favourite against reigning premier Natimuk United on Saturday when the teams go head-to-head at Balmoral.
The Roos won their round-three encounter by 12 goals.
At the time, the Ewes had not yet settled following several off-season departures, but they will also struggle to get the better of Harrow-Balmoral this time around without the services of an injured Jo Taylor.
Most sides find it difficult to combat the height of Natimuk United goalie Shannon Couch, however, Roos defender Ebonie Salter is one of the best rebounders in the competition and the match-up is sure to provide interest for spectators.
Upset on the cards?
The most compelling game of round 14 will be at Beulah, where a visiting Edenhope-Apsley will attempt to knock off another top-two competitor, Southern Mallee Giants.
Both the Giants and the Saints will play finals, but the ladder order is yet to be determined.
The Saints have promised a strong finish to the season with a more settled line-up, including several high-calibre players. This week’s match will again depend on the line-up the Saints field.
If their defenders can put enough pressure on the Giants’ shooters, the Saints could pull off the upset.
The Giants are sitting second, but they are yet to come up against many of the competition’s stronger sides since hitting their straps.
Either way, expect a fast-paced and clinical game.
