Demons on a roll after holding top five spot in fierce battle



Yarram remains in the top five following a three-goal win over Rosedale on Saturday.

It was the Demons’ third win in a row, following a hard-fought game for most of the match.

“It was great to get another win on the board and the girls worked hard all day in what was a close (contest),” Yarram A grade coach Lucy Bell said.

“It is great to be hitting this strong form at this time of the season.”

Best-on-court was awarded to centre Chelsea Smith who played a defensive game at both ends of the court, Bell said.

The Demons will take on sixth-placed Churchill which sits just outside the ladder, four points below Yarram.

The Cougars head into the game after an impressive 35-goal win over tenth-placed Gormandale last round.

Churchill A grade captain Katrina Hutchins said her side would like to “carry their momentum” into this weekend’s clash against Yarram following a percentage-boosting win last week.

Heyfield v Woodside

Heyfield continues to dominate the North Gippsland A grade ladder following 17-goal win over Cowwarr last weekend.

The Roos, who are set to take on Woodside in game of the round this weekend, reign undefeated for the season, 14 points in front of the second-placed Wildcats.

For Woodside it also comes off a win after fighting off third-placed Glengarry on Saturday.

Outside of the top two is Glengarry and Sale while Yarram bumps in at fifth place.

Churchill and Cowwarr make up six and seven while Rosedale, Traralgon Tyers United and Gormandale round out the top 10.

Gormandale v TTU

In a bottom-of-the-table clash, Gormandale will host Traralgon Tyers United in a 10th versus ninth match.

The Tigers sit last with the one win and draw following a less than impressive season on the court.

The Bombers, who have experienced similar form, sit ninth with two wins and 14 losses.

Two points separate these teams, with a battle expected to take place to ensure the wooden spoon is awarded to the respective team.

Glengarry v Rosedale

Rosedale will have the tough task of travelling to Glengarry this round to take on the third-placed Magpies.

Glengarry heads into the game after an 11-goal loss to the Wildcats while Rosedale looks to recover after a lacklustre three-goal loss to the Demons in round 16.

Rosedale’s season is all but over, sitting eighth with five wins and 10 losses.

Sale City v Cowwarr

SALE CITY continues to hold on to a top five spot following 18-goal win over Traralgon Tyers United.

The Bulldogs host Cowwarr this weekend as the Saints look to recover from a 17-goal loss to the Roos in round 16.

Sale City sits fourth while Cowwarr sits outside the five at seventh with five wins, nine losses and two draws.
