Explosive contest to be ignited

Katunga's Aimee Sidebottom has been huge in her side's three-game win streak.

Waaia and Katunga will square off this weekend in what promises to be a blistering encounter at the top of the Picola District Netball League.

The Bombers’ superb defence has made headlines this season, allowing just 77 goals in three games as it suffocates the life out of opposition teams.

But Aimee Sidebottom’s Katunga crew has been similarly efficient on the attacking side of the ball, and will again look to talents Jordyn Sutton and Grace Tyack to produce their usual quality.

In Strathmerton, the Bulldogs have won their last two matches and will shoot for number three against Berrigan.

The Saints have struggled this year to compete, outscored by 102 goals in four games.

Last time out they did fight on well however, falling by just 14 goals to Picola United in a display they can take plenty from.

The Blues themselves have a difficult task this weekend, facing off with undefeated Blighty in a blockbuster contest.

No one knew quite what to expect from Blighty heading into the new campaign but the Molly Cochrane and Rhiannan Maxwell-coached unit has been just that - united.

Sitting at the top of the league with a stellar 4-0, the Redeyes would back themselves in to see off the Blues, whose form has been up and down this season.

Tocumwal has returned to sensational form after a minor setback in a round two loss to Blighty.

The Bloods - and their quest for a fourth straight premiership - welcome Rennie this weekend, fresh off a strong performance against Katunga.

The Hoppers led at three-quarter-time but lost their way, falling by six goals.

Mathoura and Jerilderie will also play this weekend, in a great opportunity for the Timbercutters to make it two wins for the season.

The Demons have struggled, particualrly in the round four flogging at the hands of Deniliquin.

The Rovers will face Katamatite expecting to record a strong win.

Katamatite ran into the Tocumwal wall last weekend, getting crushed by 39 goals.
