THE YCW versus Newbridge game promises to be one of the best Loddon Valley Netball League games of the round.

The two teams sit second and fourth on the ladder and both had good wins last weekend.

Newbridge coach Carmen Shevlin said the girls were ready to battle against the best in the competition.

“YCW has been the benchmark of the league for a long time now,” she said.

“The game will test us, but this game has been one we have been looking forward to for a while.”

Since losing its first game of the season, Newbridge has won its past three matches.

Shevlin said she was happy how the girls have begun the season.

“It would have been nice to win all four games, but we have had a good start,” she said.

Shevlin believed the game would be about tactics, rather than being physical.

“I think we can match them on the physical side of things, so it will be about tactics,” she said.

“It will be a good game.”

In other games, Bridgewater will host Mitiamo on Saturday afternoon.

Marong, which is coming off the bye in round five, will face Calivil United at Raywood Recreation Reserve.

Bears-Lagoon Serpentine will battle Pyramid Hill.

Inglewood has the bye.
