Eagles aim to soar on Pyramid Hill’s court

THE Maiden Gully YCW Eagles will aim to mark a successful trek to Pyramid Hill in this Saturday’s fifth round of A-grade netball in the Bendigo Bank Loddon Valley Football Netball League.

It’s third against fourth on Pyramid Hill’s court at Mitchell Park.

Winless in 2019, Pyramid Hill has made a superb start to this campaign.

The Bulldogs achieved a season-high of 50 goals in last Saturday’s win against Marong at Discover Marong Oval in Malone Park.

After a bye, Maiden Gully YCW will be keen to be back on court.

In their previous clash, the Eagles scored a 61-54 at Marist College Oval against Marong.

An unbeaten run by Maiden Gully YCW began at home against Newbridge and was followed by a thrilling three-goal victory on Calivil United’s court at 5 Star Stockfeeds Oval in Calivil.

Bridgewater takes on Calivil United at Laser Plumbing Oval in Bridgewater.

The campaign for Bridgewater did not start until round three.

Since then the Mean Machine has powered to a 43-goal win at home against Inglewood and a 21-goal victory at Simonds Homes Riverside Oval in Newbridge.

Calivil United played great netball to score 50 goals in their home clash with Mitiamo.

The ladder-leading Mitiamo takes on Marong this Saturday at John Forbes Oval.

The Superoos have won by by margins of 23, 15 and 16 goals.

Newbridge plays Bears Lagoon Serpentine in the lower grades at Simonds Homes Riverside Park, but the Maroons have a rest in A-grade.

Inglewood has the bye.

Loddon Valley FNL A-grade netball ladder:

Mitiamo 144 per cent, 16 points; Bridgewater 201, 12; Pyramid Hill 138, 12; Maiden Gully YCW Eagles 119, 12; Marong 99, 4; Calivil United 85, 4; Inglewood 55, 4; Newbridge 59, 0.
