FOOTBALL | Mansfield 23.18 – 156 v Shepparton Swans 8.9 – 57
Great 4 quarter effort by us on the weekend. The game was a little but scrappy early but we were able to get on top as the game progressed.
Our midfield were all really impressive with a complete domination in the clearance numbers.

This weekend will be a great test for us against Tatura who we will likely be battling with for a finals berth.

NETBALL | Mansfield 29 v Shepparton Swans 51
Our senior team faced off against the in form Shepparton Swans who were currently sitting in the Top 2 on the ladder. This was a result of a 5 winning streak. Our performance against Kyabram in Rd 6 was the type of netball we would needed to produce to compete against top sides.

Captain Darcy Croxford Demasi was a standout, playing an incredible game from the Centre…
With every player available for this weeks game, we were hoping to utilize our rotations and get fresh legs on court each quarter. A slow start to the game cost us on the scoreboard. We managed to redeem ourselves with a quality second quarter. This wasn’t enough and unfortunately the Shepparton Swans were able to control the second half and eventually produce a convincing win.
As a group, we struggled to step up to their level. We allowed our opponents to dictate how we played the game.
Captain Darcy Croxford Demasi was a standout, playing an incredible game from the centre. Her presence provided composure and dominance for the full 4 quarters. The next month will be challenging over the next 4 rounds, playing 3 teams in the top 6. Our preparation and focus in the week leading up to these games will be important if we want to compete in Finals.
