MAIDEN Gully YCW’s fight to grab fifth place on the A-grade netball ladder rolls on in this Saturday’s 15th round of the Loddon Valley FNL season.
The Eagles played brilliant netball to upstage the highly-fancied Bridgewater in last week’s clash on the Marist College court.
A 46-45 victory was Maiden Gully YCW’s best of the season and kept the heat on the fifth-placed Pyramid Hill.
The Eagles and Pyramid Hill are locked on seven wins apiece, but the red, white and blue has a percentage buffer of just under three.
In round 15, Maiden Gully YCW takes on the third-placed Calivil United at Raywood.
The Demons scored a 56-32 win against the Eagles in the sixth round.
Stung by last Saturday’s loss, Bridgewater will be determined to bounce back at home against Pyramid Hill.
The second-placed Bridgwater scored a 13-goal victory in the lastest showdown between the clubs.
Mitiamo should improve its win-loss tally to 12-2 when it takes on Bears Lagoon Serpentine.
The A-grade players from Newbridge have a rest because of a forfeit by Inglewood.
Marong has the bye.
