Lions are on prowl

May 04, 2018

Accurate shooting from Morgan Dingwall will be important against Seymour.

The rise of Seymour continues as it shows a new element to its game each week.

Even though the Lions could not get the job done against Shepparton last round, the side still put in a solid performance.

Laura Carland’s side will now be looking to replicate that against Rochester with the aim of acquiring the four points this week.

With Victorian Netball League stars missing, Sarah Douglas, Meg Grbac and Rosie O’Sullivan stood up to effectively transition the ball down the court against the Bears.

Ellie O’Sullivan shouldered the shooting load and will be expected to do the same against the Tigers.

Her accuracy and work with Carland in the circle will be crucial in building the buffer early as Linda Rasmussen’s side continues to hunt its second win of the season.

The Tigers have defeated just Mansfield this year although could have had two more wins to show for their efforts.

Six goals was the difference in a low-scoring tussle against Mooroopna in miserable weather in round two with five goals the difference as it went down to Tatura last week.

Morgan Dingwall continues to serve her side well in the goal circle as the Tigers look to up their scoring against better teams.

As a result Eesha Clarke and Ellie Cuttriss will be responsible for leading the movement of the ball down the court, which will see plenty of opposition from Douglas.

But Rochester has a habit of rising in big games to compete against sides with a higher ranking.

Ladder-leader Shepparton received a challenge earlier in the season with the same intensity needed in tomorrow’s match.

Having spent many recent years dwelling in the bottom four, the even nature of the competition could present the opportunity for Rasmussen’s team to start making its move.
