In some respect the match of the round turned out to be a one horse race with Victor Harbor taking the game comfortably against Goolwa by 23 goals. 

They showed they are more than capable of putting the pedal to the metal when the need arises and showed dominance across the court.

They are  side to be respected and have a great ability to lift once challenged.

Yankalilla would be pleased that they have notched up their first win and did so comfortably. In doing so moved they themselves up to eighth.

They worked off the bench once again giving girls opportunity to play at league level.

McLaren Vale found the going tough against Strathalbyn losing by 22 goals. Strathalbyn had a good defensive game keeping the Vale girls down to 26 goals.

Willunga caused the upset of the round (well maybe just for my tipping) taking the game against Mt Compass by a sneaky 2 goals.

The game was relatively low scoring at 39-37, so credit to the defensive work of both sides.

Langhorne Creek must have had a positive week given that they only went down to Myponga by 14, so that could be counted as a good loss seeing that’s less than four goals per quarter. 

Myponga would be disappointed they couldn’t make a bigger dent in the scoreline.

Round 7 sees some interesting games that make it tough to predict.

Mt Compass are against Myponga which could be a cracker jack game if both teams can play at their optimum level.

Emma Raper provides a focal point up front for Myponga, so the defence for Compass will need to work to shut down both her and the feeding options going in. 

Mt Compass currently sit third and will keep their position in the top four this week taking it by 9.

McLaren Vale are up against Goolwa this week and will find the match ups tough. Goolwa have more experience in comparison to the young Vale side and will be able to move the ball quickly through the mid court with Hannah Priest dominating the mid court. 

Also the Magpies will want to prove that the thrashing they received on the weekend to Victor Harbor was an aberration and not something the side will experience each week. Good teams bounce back and learn. 

Goolwa by 25.

Strathalbyn take on Encounter Bay at home and will cruise to a comfortable victory.  Strathalbyn currently have the second best defensive efforts in the league so this will challenge the Bay girls as they aim to convert every attacking opportunity.  Strathalbyn by 40.

Victor Harbor are home to Willunga this week and will be a bit of a handful for the red and whites. Willunga will need to focus on stopping the slick ball movement from the Victor girls who are able to transition the ball very efficiently.  Victor by 28.

Yankalilla play Langhorne Creek and Yankalilla will get their second win of the season. 

Creek will be looking for a competitive game and if they can bring their form from last week should be able to make it a very interesting duel. Yank by 10. Happy netballing everyone.
