Hope you all enjoyed the break last week and are eager to get back to playing the remainder of the season,.‘
A Cap of Last Round’s Results
Port Fairy and Terang Mortlake fought out a great contest with the Bloods eventual winners by a single goal. Cobden continued on their winning way defeating Portland 63 – 39. Sophie Blain was hard to stop through the centre court and Remy Grant played well for the Tigers. Camperdown would have been pleased with their team’s performance only going down to ladder leader’s South Warrnambool by 12 goals. Lily Eldridge and Carly Watson were strong in defence for their respective teams. Warrnambool opened up a handy lead in their first quarter against the Hamilton Kangaroos. Hamilton then struggled to get on top of their gamel playing catch up netball and went down 43 – 47 at the final siren. After drawing when North Warrnambool and Koroit met in Round 2, it was always going to be a tight game. The eagles got off to a great start early and never looked in doubt. They were eventual winners 49 – 37.
Congratulations to Remeny McCann from the Cobden FNC who will play her 150th Senior Game this weekend.

My predictions for this Week.
Close town rivals Cobden and Camperdown match up this week. Cobden will be looking to secure a top 3 finish and should take the win over the Magpies.
Hamilton Kangaroos take on Portland at Hanlon Park. In what will be a close contest, if Hamilton are able to shut down the Tiger’s shooters, they may turn the tables from their last encounter and take a narrow win.
South Warrnambool take on Port Fairy at the Friendlies and should win this match comfortably and Koroit won’t have too much trouble accounting for Terang Mortlake,.
In the Match of the Round, Warrnambool (in 4th position) play North Warrnambool Eagles (who are currently in 5th) Both teams are vying for a spot in the Top 3 and will be eager for the win. The strength of North’s defence will be a key factor and I think the Eagles can score another win here.
Good Luck to all Teams competing in Netball and Football this weekend.
