Jasmine Vukcevic has been handy in attack for Shepparton South in the Bendigo Amateur Soccer League women's competition.

Shepparton South heads into its round seven Bendigo Amateur Soccer League women’s match confident of a win.

South takes on cellar-dweller Golden City, hosting the Bendigo-based side at McEwen Reserve tomorrow, with the home side having the ability to build a buffer early by making the most of Golden City’s loose defence.

Jasmine Vukcevic has been handy in attack this season, as have Lucinda Murdoch and Jamieson Clarke, with the trio hopeful of seeing their names on the scoreboard multiple times.

Golden City has conceded a whopping 28 goals this season, seven more than its closest rival in Swan Hill.

More concerning has been the team’s inability to score, with just two goals to its name in four games.

Shepparton South will try and take advantage in the side’s transition from defence into the midfield, needing to make sure having most of play is seen on the scoreboard.

Eaglehawk enters the match on the back of a dominant 4-0 win over Spring Gully.

It is a much needed boost as Eaglehawk hosts Colts United in what should prove one of the closest matches of the round.

Just a point separates the two teams and, despite sitting lower on the ladder, Colts United has strikers who rival the best in the competition.

But despite its supreme attacking ability led via gun striker Rebecca Berry, the defensive unit needs to be shored up.

Despite scoring an average of four times a game, Colts United also concedes just over three goals a game in a statistic Eaglehawk will try and take full advantage of.

Epsom travels to the border to play Moama-Echuca as Swan Hill has an opportunity to put its first win on the board against Spring Gully.

BASL teams will be spared the wrath of Shepparton United with the top side having a scheduled week off, as does Strathdale.
