MITIAMO joint coach Jenny Clohesy expects her Superoos to be much improved by last week’s hit-out against Calivil United.
The Superoos missed their chance to advance directly to this season’s LVFNL grand final, when they were beaten by five goals against Calivil United and now face a cut-throat preliminary final against Bridgewater.
The second semi-final showdown was the Superoos’ first official match in 28 days following a pair of byes to end the minor season and another bye in the first week of finals.
Clohesy, who is in her third season as coach and has this year been joined at the helm by Kylie Piercey, was expecting the Superoos to hit the ground running against the Mean Machine.
“We’re really looking forward to the challenge. Just getting that game under our belt last week will help,” she said.
“It’s hard to tell which way to go (when you have such a long break), but as each day comes you just have to deal with it.
“What we need to do is just play our game and not be too worried about what they (the Mean Machine) are going to do.”
Clohesy believed the Superoos’ versatility would hold them in good stead against the Mean Machine, who bounced back from an opening round finals loss to comfortably defeat Maiden Gully YCW last weekend.
“We have eight girls we can flick around into any position if things aren’t working,” she said.
“If they are working we’ll go on playing our game.
“All our girls got (league medal) votes during the season, which was really pleasing, and means we are not relying one or two players.
“It’s showed everyone has a job to do and everyone is capable of doing it.”
Mitiamo is 1-1 in games played against Bridgewater this season.
The Mean Machine won their season opener at Mitiamo by three goals (44-41), before the Superoos reversed the result at Bridgewater in round 10 with a 59-57 victory.
