CALIVIL United coach Karen Pascoe says her team is confident of bouncing back this weekend after its first loss last round.

Calivil was beaten by the reigning premiers YCW last week, but still remain on top of the Loddon Valley Netball League ladder.

“Losing to YCW definitely brought some weaknesses to the surface which gives us a lot to work on before we face Mitiamo,” Pascoe said.

The last time Calivil and Mitiamo met the game ended in a dramatic 42-all draw.

Pascoe said it would be an interesting game with key players from both teams missing from their earlier encounter.

“If we're going to defeat a class side like Mitiamo we need to play out the full four quarters,” Pascoe said.

“Our last meeting was a really great battle and I'd be expecting the same this time around.”

Pascoe said it was important for her team to continue to build ahead of the 2014 finals series.

“It would be great to finish the season on top of the ladder, but the bigger focus for us is to keep strengthening as a side and keep our best netball for finals time,” she said.

YCW will play against Bears-Lagoon Serpentine, Inglewood will play-off against Bridgewater and Pyramid Hill will take on Marong.

Newbridge has the bye.
