AFTER a break for inter-league and a bye, Calivil United is fresh and ready to continue its good form into the second half of the season.

Coach Karen Pascoe said the A-grade team was looking forward to getting back onto the netball court.

“It has been two weeks since we have played so everyone is ready to get going again,” she said.

In round eight action of the Loddon Valley Netball League, Calivil United will take on Bears Lagoon Serpentine.

Pascoe said it would be a tough game.

“Serpentine are a good team. They always come out strong,” she said.

“It won’t be an easy game.”

Pascoe said the two week break was an opportunity for some of her players to overcome some niggling injuries.

“The break was an advantage for us. It was a chance for some players to nurse some injuries,” she said.

“We will now probably field our strongest team to date on Saturday, barring one player.”

This season Calivil has managed to score heavily.

Of their six games, on four occasions they have scored more than 50 goals.

Pascoe said she set targets for the team to meet.

“If the game is flowing well then we have certain goals we want to hit and so far we have been pretty successful,” she said.

In other games, Inglewood will host Mitiamo. 

Bridgewater will take on Marong and Newbridge will play Pyramid Hill at Riverside Park. 

All the games are scheduled to be played at 2.30pm on Saturday. 

YCW has the bye.
