Redbacks go down fighting But the Seagulls turned things around, and did so quickly, with a dominant 14-7 second term. Sara Duncan (WD) made a huge difference after coming on at the first break, providing Shona Wells (C) and Emma Iacovou (WA) with some perfect passing going forward. And Narre Warren has bounced back to the winners list in emphatic style with a fast-starting 64-45 victory over Berwick at Kalora Park. Stung by losses to Beaconsfield and Tooradin, the Magpies started in blistering fashion scoring 18 to eight in the first quarter. Gabby Dwyer (GS) was sensational for the Magpies scoring 16 goals in the opening term and finishing with 48 for the match. Abuk Kenyang (GS) continues to impress for the Wickers, matching Dwyer with 12 goals in the second quarter on her way to 34 for the match. Cranbourne had the bye.

By David Nagel The weather gods turned nasty for SEFNL netballers on Saturday as bitterly cold conditions hit the south east corridor of Melbourne. The most interesting clash of the weekend was between Beaconsfield and Hampton Park, grand finalist against Narre Warren over the last two years. The Eagles prevailed by five goals, 42-37, in a game that could have serious repercussions going forward. We all know the Eagles are a genuine threat this season while the Redbacks are an interesting case study. A plethora of new faces descended on Robert Booth Reserve in the off-season - the most impressive performance of their season. “We’re really excited about the second half of the year,” said Redbacks coach Kylie Kibble. “I think it’s taken until now for the girls to gel, this was our best game and we started working hard for each other after half time. Beaconsfield is a really strong side so to only go down by five, have Shannon (Rennison) out, and win the last two quarters was a really great effort I thought.” Beacy started with all guns blazing, Jasmine Jones (centre and wing attack) once again brilliant through the midcourt while Britnee Tyers (goal defence) and Dani Cameron (goal keeper) made scoring difficult for the Redbacks. Karli Foster (GK) and Brooke Keily (GK) were terrific defenders for the visitors. A devastating second-quarter blitz has set Doveton on the path to a 53-38 victory over Pakenham at Toomuc Reserve. The Doves led 14-8 at the first break but piled on 16-4 in a timely reminder of their premiership aspirations. Liz Nicol (goal shooter) and Shae Gee (goal attack) shared the goal-scoring duties for the Doves, fed beautifully by Hayley Stewart (C) and their exquisitely-skilled coach Liz Edwards (WA). The Lions were beaten but very brave in defeat, cutting an 18-goal margin at half time back to 15 by the final whistle. Kyra Esler (GA), Katrina Meredith (C), Renae Joiner (WA) and Keely Wright (wing defence) all enjoyed new roles in a much-improved second-half display. Tooradin’s perfect season continues to roll on nicely after the Seagulls secured a 53-29 win over

through the centre and Mel Overdyk (GK) and Laura Quinn (GD) controlling things in defence, the Kangas led by a goal, 9-8 at quarter time.

Interleague battle looms By David Nagel In the words of the late great ‘Louie the Lip’ Lou Richards, it’s going to be a real ‘ring a ding ding’ battle when the South East Football Netball League hosts Hampden in the AFL Victoria Community Championships at Casey Fields on Saturday. The 1pm showdown will see an interleague legend in SEFNL coach Michael ‘Jock’ Holland lock horns with former AFL great Jonathan Brown, with both men looking to elevate their leagues into a top-10 force in the state. Holland has been there and done it before with the Demons, rising from a VCFL ranking of 17 in 2012 to a ranking of 10 after victories over Nepean, Wimmera, Bellarine and Sunraysia. The inclusion of metropolitan leagues in Eastern, Essendon, Northern and Western saw the Demons drop to 14 last year before a stunning victory over Murray at Mulwala saw them jump back to 12. Holland knows only too well it will take every ounce of effort to

bounce back into the top 10 against a fully committed Hampden. “I know a lot of their guys have committed this year, with Browny on board, but that’s great for us, it gives us the opportunity to take on one of the best leagues in the state at full strength,” Holland said. “I’ve been talking it up, that I firmly believe we have the goods to be one of the top five leagues in the state and that our best will be good enough.” Holland has never been scared to give players an opportunity, with 81 players being part of the unbeaten five-year streak since 2012. Jake Bowd, Sam Blackwood and Luke McKenna would appear to be locks to make their debuts in the back half, while Bryce Rutherford, Trent Cody, Nick Battle and Nick Lang will bring elite class to the midfield brigade. Michael Collins lines up for his ninth interleague campaign, his first in 2006 when he was a team-mate of Holland! This squad is one of the strongest Hampden has assembled in recent memory, with a deep contingent of

Berwick star and former Casey Scorpion Michael Riseley will be a key player for SEFNL against Hampden at Casey Fields. 166733 Picture: ROB CAREW experienced stars. Former AFL listed players Tim McIntire (Adelaide), Rory Taggert (Melbourne), Daniel Nicholson (Melbourne) and Josh Saunders (St Kilda) will join VFL listed players James Gow (North Ballarat) and

Jarrod Korewha (North Ballarat) as key members of the squad. Cost of admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students and aged pensioners with kids under 16 free. Football records will be available at the gate for $2.50.
