Nothing Wong with Cats’ form

by

Looking out for each other: Mooroopna's Maddie Wong and Ash Lancaster are a dream pairing in defence.

Mooroopna has achieved yet another flying run to start the season.

Last year the Cats won four in a row before a string of five losses and this year Jenny Barlow’s side sits top of the table with five consecutive victories.

Mooroopna will be aiming to stay there when it travels to take on Tatura.

While the Cats start favourites in this match, there is ground for the Bulldogs to be confident.

Brylee Schache was announced as Tatura’s sole inclusion in the Goulburn Valley League interleague squad with her work alongside Danielle Cornwall in the goal ring drawing plenty of accolades.

But Schache will come up against an interleague defender in Maddie Wong who has not faultered throughout the season.

The duo’s battle will be one that could decide the outcome of the match, with Wong and Ash Lancaster conceding just 106 goals in five matches.

Cats star Mia Fallon was also rewarded for her stirling start to the year with inclusion to play under Shepparton coach Tracey Brereton when the GVL takes on Ovens and Murray at Yarrawonga on Sunday week.

Fallon has been integral through the midcourt and the main driver of the attack as rising talents begin to work alongside her and learn.

But the Bulldogs will continue to focus on maintaining intensity for the full four quarters.

Tatura secured a 28-goal win against Mansfield last week, putting on scores of 10, 13,11 and 11 which showed it can be done.

But a match against Mooroopna will mean more effort has to go into the mental side of the game and working through their opposition’s style of play.

A win to the Cats would keep them undefeated until after the interleague bye when a testing three weeks of matches against Shepparton Swans, Shepparton United and Shepparton awaits.
