Top two in top form

NORTH Gippsland football’s top two sides kept their unbeaten starts to the season intact with thumping victories last weekend.

Coming off a 119-point hammering of Glengarry, ladder leader Sale City is likely to be tested on Saturday by Heyfield.

The match of the round will involve two in-form teams, both coming off round four wins.

The sixth-placed Kangaroos fought off a challenge from Cowwarr to win by three goals. Entering their home game 2-2, the Kangaroos will be looking to take their season ledger into positive territory.

SECOND-placed Rosedale looks good at the moment and it’s hard to see it losing to bottom side Gormandale.

The Blues were too strong for Traralgon-Tyers United on Monday, while the Tigers will be hoping the home ground advantage and having two more days to recover than their opponent will boost their chances of causing an upset.

TWO teams which lost last weekend, TTU and Woodside, will be eager to claim the four points tomorrow.

The Bombers have played quality opposition in the opening rounds, but were thumped on Monday by Rosedale, while the Wildcats had shown great form this year until losing for the first time this season to Churchill.

COWWARR will be hoping for its first win since round one when it hosts Yarram.

The fourth-placed Demons have found some good form in recent weeks and look set to continue that over the next month with matches against lower-placed teams.

The Saints have the home ground advantage and played well against Heyfield last week, pushing the Kangaroos all the way.

COMING off victory at Woodside, Churchill will host Glengarry.

Churchill will be happy with two wins in the bank, while Glengarry is still in a re-building phase.

Both sides have played well this year and an Glengarry upset is not beyond the realms of possibility if the Magpies apply themselves.
