INGLEWOOD coach Wendy Murphy says the 2014 netball season is more about building for the future than it is about getting the results on the board.

Inglewood has lost its first three games of the Loddon Valley Netball season, however, Murphy says the A-grade girls are continuing to remain positive about their season.

“The girls are banding together,” she said.

“After not having an A-grade team in the competition last season it has been a step up for the girls.

“We haven’t won a game, but we have certainly been competitive in parts of games this season.

“We might have lost to Calivil United by 40 goals, but in the first quarter, in particular, we were very competitive, which was a positive.”

On Saturday, Inglewood faces Bridgewater, which has won won one game and lost another.

Murphy said it was important for the team to concentrate on its own game rather than the opposition.

“We have got to be competitive and just play our game,” she said.

“We can’t take any team for granted.”

Mitiamo will also face a red-hot Calivil United team on Saturday afternoon.

Mitiamo sits in third position on the ladder, while Calivil United remains the only undefeated team left in the competition.

Superoos coach Jen Morrison said it would be a tough game.

“If we have a full side it will be a close game... if we don’t then it won’t be as close,” she said.

Morrison said it had been tough to have the same team play consecutive games this season.

“We have had to change the team a few times; we have just been lucky that some of the girls are versatile,” she said.

“We had the bye in the first round, played a game and then had league bye before playing another game.

“We haven’t had the best start.”

In other Loddon Valley games, Bears-Lagoon Serpentine will host YCW and Marong will play Pyramid Hill.

Newbridge has the bye this round.
