SFNL Round 11 preview

Game details for round 11, Sat June 22:

Sth Mildura v Ouyen United

South Mildura Football Netball Club

Vs

Ouyen Football Netball Club

While this is a bottom of the ladder clash, this match at the Mildura Sporting Precinct presents as a competitive encounter. South Mildura will go into the game with confidence having defeated Merbein last week. 

With the added motivation of celebrating Anthony Gauci’s 200th the Bulldogs will be well primed for this match. 

Ouyen United are fresh off the bye and will be looking to build on the form that had them draw with ladders leaders, Imperials, a few weeks back. Josh Gregg, Beau Schwarze and Stanley Cox have been in good form and would have the Kangas thinking that they can turn the tables on the early season loss.  

Their last encounter: Round 2  – Ouyen United 10.6:66 v South Mildura 10.22:82 South Mildura won by 16 points

Mildura v Merbein

Mildura Football Netball Club

Vs

Merbein Football Club

Don’t be taken aback at first look if you notice the Essendon colours running out on Brian Weightman Oval today. Mildura is stepping back in time and playing in their heritage jumper today as they take on Merbein. 

Both teams are looking to atone for losses last week, but even in defeat form lines can be drawn. Mildura tested the league leaders all game in their cotenant encounter, while Merbein suffered on and off the field in their defeat to South Mildura. 

Fresh off a 50+ possession game, coach, Sam Kerridge will be hard to curtail. Merbein will be smarting from their disappointing performance last week and undoubtedly will be primed for a response this week.

Their last encounter: Round 2 – Merbein 12.10:82 v Mildura 11.15:81. Merbein  won by 1 point

Wentworth v Imperials

Wentworth Mildura Football Netball Club

Vs

Imperials colour

With an ‘after the siren’ deciding goal in their last encounter, the much-anticipated return game between Wentworth and Imperials is upon us. Separated by half a game at the top of the ladder there’s a lot riding on this match in terms of both ladder position and psychological advantage should the two teams meet in the finals. 

Both teams will be prepared to admit that while winning, their respective form has room for improvement, and both teams will be looking to fine tune their game plan against quality opposition this week. 

The atmosphere should be electric at George Gordon Oval, Dareton in what promises to be a classic and one of the matches of the season.

Their last encounter: Round 2  – Imperials 7.7:49 v Wentworth 7.9:51. Wentworth won by 2 points

Irymple v Red Cliffs

Irymple Colours

Vs

Red Cliffs Football Netball Club

A sea of purple will greet all that venture to Henshilwood Oval, Irymple as the Swallow’s promote the Little Sky Eyes charity and raise awareness around Dravet Syndrome. 

As is Irymple’ s want, they are quietly ticking along and building into the season. Sitting third on the ladder, consecutive wins against their last to grand final opponents at their most recent outings and a string of top liners in form have them well placed to defend their premiership. 

Red Cliffs don’t have the win-loss record they would crave, but generally have been competitive in parts or for most games should never be underestimated. This game should prove to be a fine spectacle.

Their last encounter: Round 2 –Red Cliffs 7.5:47 Irymple 15.18:108. Irymple won by 61 points
