THE last time Colbinabbin and Lockington-Bamawm United locked horns, they fought out a draw. 

This Saturday, Grasshopers coach Olivia McEvoy is predicting another hard fought game to be played between the two HDNA sides. 

"It is always a tough, hard-fought game against Lockington," she said. 

"It will be a competitive and physical game and I know their team haven't had too many changes. 

"Most of their players have played a lot of netball together."

McEvoy said key player Gabby Barlow had suffered an injury and would be out of the A-grade team indefinitely. 

She said her injury hadn't come at a good time of the season but said the team would be able to re-group for the second half of the season. 

"The girls have got some confidence, especially after the past couple of weeks," McEvoy said. 

"We have finally gelled together."

In the past two rounds, Colbinabbin has scored 155 goals and only had 37 goals scored against them. 

McEvoy said the aim of the second half of the season was to continue to play consistent netball.

"We are just taking it week by week and not trying to get over confident," she said.

"We don't train together so everyone is 110 per cent focused on game day and that is what we have been doing."

In other round 10 Heathcote District Netball Association games, Huntly will host Mount Pleasant, White Hills will take on Leitchville-Gunbower and Heathcote will play Elmore. 

Ladder-leaders North Bendigo has the bye.
