Goolwa didn’t have it all their own way when they took the win by five against Strathalbyn. Goolwa named 10 players and welcomed some new names into their side including Jo Wilson and Lauren Hyde. 

Strathalbyn had their regular line-up apart from Courtney Webb coming in for Hannah Platt and should be pleased that they could push the second placed side.

EASY PASS: Myponga goal defence Rachel Hutchinson passes the netball on Saturday in the League game against Victor Harbor. Victor Harbor won convincingly.

McLaren Vale cruised to a comfortable win when they journeyed to Langhorne Creek doubling the Hawk girls score 60-30.

The Creek girls found the height in the defence circle tough to overcome and they worked from the bench throwing different combinations on the court to see if they could create more of an impact.

GOING STRAIGHT: Strathalbyn wing defence Bella Garwood passes perfectly to team mate Kim Cutting on Saturday to clear the ball out of her defensive zone.

Mt Compass accounted comfortably for Encounter Bay winning by 32. Mt Compass would be hopeful they can still make the top four, but it will be a tough ask. 

Victor Harbor were able to keep Myponga out of the game taking it by 43. Both teams had players missing so some different court combinations hit the court. Iesha Vallance played her second League game of the season for Myponga.

Willunga had a convincing win against Yankalilla 65-32. Looks like there wouldn’t have been too much room on the Yank bench for spectators as they had 11 players taking the court. Obviously it was a tough day out for the Yank girls.

Round 14 starts off with Encounter Bay being home to Langhorne Creek. Pride would be at stake here for the two sides. 

Last time they met it was a draw, so both teams would like to take the win and keep themselves off the bottom of the ladder. Tough call, but thinking the Creek girls might sneak home with a 2 goal win.

After their big win last weekend, Vale will be back to reality this week when they take on Victor Harbor. Victor by 35.

Myponga are up against Goolwa and will find it another tough one this week. Interesting to see if Goolwa have another long list this week and if so this will make Myponga’s task even harder. 

Goolwa won by 20 last time and I believe the margin will be similar again this time around. Goolwa by 25.

Willunga are home to the Strath chicks and it will be a closer game than last time and the match of the round with three playing four. 

Willunga have hit a bit of form getting their team work happening more confidently and will take it to Strath. Still think Strath will be too strong and take it by 5.

Yankalilla take on Mt Compass in the last match of the round. Mt Compass have a touch more depth than the Yank girls and will win by 15. 

Happy netballing everyone!
