Harrow-Balmoral, Natimuk United go head-to-head in Anzac Day clash

UNDEFEATED Horsham District Football Netball League outfits Harrow-Balmoral and Natimuk United will go head-to-head in an Anzac Day clash on Friday.

Natimuk United coach Cheryl Sudholz is expecting a tough match at Harrow Recreation Reserve.

Sudholz hopes her charges will produce a competitive, four-quarter effort.

“We’d love to take away the four points, but if we don’t then we will know what we need to work on.”

She said the Ewes would be without centre player Emily Hateley.

“It leaves us with a bit of a hole in the mid-court,” she said.

Sudholz believes the game will come down to the accuracy of the teams’ goalies.

“If our goalies miss, the ball will probably end up going straight down the other end,” she said.

Sudholz said sisters Kirby and Ash Knight had been in good form in the goal ring but would be up against a tough opponent in reigning league best and fairest Ebonie Salter.

Taylors Lake is still searching for its first win of the season and will be hoping to get up against Kalkee on Saturday.

The Lakers had a tough match against Natimuk United before the Easter break, while the Kees fared little better against ladder leader Harrow-Balmoral.

The Kees and Noradjuha-Quantong are sitting just outside the top five, equal on points, and will be keen to stay in touch with the ladder leaders.

The Bombers will start favourites when they host Swifts on Saturday.

Swifts were competitive against Edenhope-Apsley in round three but were unable to break through for a win.

In other Horsham District matches, Edenhope-Apsley will host Rupanyup at Apsley Recreation Reserve, while Pimpinio will have its work cut out for it against Laharum at home.
