Elmore faces test at home against White Hills

by Nathan Dole

THE fourth-placed Elmore faces a big test against A-grade netball power, White Hills in this Saturday’s round 13 action in the Bendigo Bank Heathcote District Football Netball League.

Elmore has home-court advantage when it takes on a line-up beaten just once this season.

When these clubs last met in round four, White Hills scored a 24-goal win at home against the team in red and white.

The Demons will again start hot favourites to take the points.

Another big match will be on North Bendigo’s court at Hibo Hotel Oval in Atkins Street.

It’s sixth against fifth as North Bendigo hosts Mount Pleasant.

The round four showdown ended in a 33-all draw at Mount Pleasant’s home in Toolleen.

Six points adrift of the Blues, North Bendigo must win to be any chance of reaching the finals.

Mounts will be refreshed after the bye as North Bendigo aims to rebound from a big defeat at White Hills.

Lockington Bamawm United plays Leitchville Gunbower at Nichol Trading Oval in Lockington.

In round four, Leitchville Gunbower beat the Cats by 11 goals.

Although this match is in LBU’s territory, the Bombers start favourite.

Heathcote faces the in-form Huntly at Pigeon Park in Heathcote’s Barrack Reserve.

The Saints worked hard, but could not halt the unbeaten Colbinabbin’s charge to a big win last Sunday.

Huntly’s confidence is high and the Hawks should take the points again.

Colbinabbin has the bye.

Standings in the Heathcote DFNL’s A-grade netball competition:

Colbinabbin 186 per cent, 44 points; White Hills 268, 40; Huntly 118, 28; Elmore 111, 24; Mount Pleasant 89, 22; North Bendigo 81, 16; Leitchville Gunbower 62, 14; Heathcote 54, 4; Lockington Bamawm United 48, 4.
