Flat too strong for Hawks on Kangaroos’ court

THE ladder-leading Kangaroo Flat dominated the A-grade netball clash with Eaglehawk in Saturday’s 10th round of the Bendigo Bank Bendigo Football Netball League season.

Back on its home court at Bendigo Mazda Oval in Dower Park, Kangaroo Flat passed the 70-goal mark against the Hawks.

The previous three rounds the Roos had played at Maryborough, Queen Elizabeth Oval and then had a bye.

A refreshed Roos’ line-up outpointed Eaglehawk in all thirds of the court on the way to a 72-37 victory.

Defences were well on top in the Golden Square and Kyneton match at Fur Life Vet Oval in Golden Square’s Wade Street.

The blue and gold was determined to mark Kristen Wilson’s 200th club game with a victory and did so.

A 20-17 result was Golden Square’s first win since a 38-36 victory against Strathfieldsaye at Wade Street in the fourth round.

In recent weeks the blue and gold had been well beaten by South Bendigo and Eaglehawk.

The defeat put a dent in Kyneton’s pursuit of a top-five berth.

Gisborne was in hot form against Strathfieldsaye at Triple M Park in Tannery Lane.

The red, white and blue did not ease up the pressure in an 81-18 victory on Storm’s court.
