Roos ready for Anzac Day

KANGAROO Flat will look to continue its perfect start to the season when they take on Eaglehawk on Anzac Day.

The Roos haven’t dropped game so far in the Bendigo Netball League, winning against Maryborough, Castlemaine and Golden Square in the first three rounds.

Kangaroo Flat, currently sitting on top of the ladder, along with Gisborne remain the only two teams left in the league who have yet to lose a game.

Eaglehawk on the other hand have lost its first two matches before winning their first game against South Bendigo last weekend.

Eaglehawk netball coordinator Kylie Piercy said the young team was a work in progress.

“We have to be realistic this season,” she said.

“Our senior side is full of students.

“But because they are young they are all willing and eager to learn.”

Kangaroo Flat will host Eaglehawk at Beck Legal Oval at 6pm.

In other Anzac Day matches Castlemaine will play Strathfieldsaye.

The Magpies are still chasing its first win, however the Storm are continuing to improve from its round one loss.

Strathfieldsaye coach Maleta Roberts said her team was building in confidence after each week.

“We just need to keep building and never go backwards,” she said.

“Every week the girls are more confident in their own roles.” Roberts expected the girls to come out firing against Castlemaine, just like they did last week against Sandhurst.

“We cannot be complacent with any team. We need to work hard in every single game we play,” she said.

The game will be played at Camp Reserve at 3.20pm.

Gisborne will also host Golden Square at Gardiner Reserve at 3.20pm.
