Woorndoo-Mortlake v Great Western

GREAT Western will look to build on its first round performance against SMW Rovers when it comes up against Woorndoo-Mortlake on Saturday.

The Lions lost by 33 points in round one but need to be better defensively if they are to match the Tigers.

Shannon Notting booted six goals in the season opener and will need more support in the forward line.

New recruit Brady Miller will again be pivotal to the Lions chances of winning after a best on ground performance for his team in round one.

Ararat Eagles v Moyston-Willaura

The Ararat Eagles will host Moyston-Willaura in round two.

The Eagles were competitive for a quarter against Tatyoon in their round one clash but will need to lift the consistency to challenge the Pumas. 

It will be the the first time Alexandra Oval is used for a football game in the season proper, with the Eagles’ hard preseason likely to pay dividends during the match.

The potency in front of goal of the Puma’s side was on display in round one, if it can create as many chances again it will be hard to knock off. The side will go into the match as heavy favourites.
