Round 14 of the Alberton Football League sees Tarwin take on league leaders Foster at Shark Park, and it will be interesting to see if they will be able to topple the undefeated Tigers.
The Sharks are coming off a huge win over the Allies, with some very good individual performances from Russell and Bergles who kicked 21 and 11 goals respectively. They will find the Foster defenders a lot tougher to kick goals on this week and will be fully tested.
The Tigers were sluggish last week against Dalyston and will need to bring their A grade game to Shark Park otherwise they might be in for their toughest day so far this season.
The Tigers have a great midfield set up and they dominate most weeks, which gives their forwards plenty of scoring opportunities as the ball gets in the forward fifty quickly and efficiently which allows Bartholomew, Best and Eddy plenty of one on one contests.
This should be a very interesting game, and a good indication as to where both sides are really at.
The Mirror expects the Sharks to give it their best shot and stay with Foster for the first half, before the Tiger’s take control to run out victors again.
Kilcunda Bass are home to Phillip Island with the Islanders coming off a shock loss last week.
Playing in heavy conditions again the Islanders would not want to drop another game in the mud, but at home to the Panthers that just could happen.
The Mirror thinks another upset is on the cards and the home side to get over the line in a very low scoring affair.
Toora, who are struggling at present are home to Fish Creek who need to get back on the winner’s list to stay in touch with the top six.
The Magpies will need their two ruckmen in Allott and Toner back in if they are to be any chance against the Creek who have plenty of bigger bodied players.
The Creek appear to have a few more avenues to goal than the Magpies, and this in the end will see them get the four points.
The local derby between the Allies and Yarram always creates a lot of interest, but this year it seems the result could be a done deal.
DWWWW will regain some players this week and they will need all they can get as the Demons are still a real chance of making the top six and a win this week will keep them in touch.
After last week’s huge loss to the Sharks, hopefully the Allies will be more competitive on Saturday.
Dalyston are home to Stony Creek and the Creek needs to win to keep second spot on the ladder.
Dalyston were competitive last week against the Tigers and will again give a good account for themselves this week, but Stony Creek are another top side who will make sure they don’t let this game slip.
Stony Creek are tipped to win, but they will know they have played a game of football by the day’s end.
Korumburra-Bena are home to IK and the ‘Burra need to win to hold on to sixth spot.
After the bye last week the home side will be fresh and ready to go, while the Sea Eagles have been struggling of late and The Mirror expects the ‘Burra to hold all the aces at home and win well.
MDU have the bye and a chance for their ground to recover a bit after recent heavy rain.
