MCDFL Rd 16 Snapshot

AVOCA v ROYAL PARK
Nanjing Night Net

Avoca (8-6) – the Bulldogs have the opportunity to sew up a finals berth with their ninth win tomorrow. Bounced back from consecutive defeats last week to down Dunolly by 62 points

Royal Park (3-11) – have lost their past 10 against Avoca by an average of 113 points. Hamish Blake and Brendan Birch had outstanding seasons, but going to take a full team effort tomorrow to challenge the Bulldogs.

CAMPBELLS CREEK v NAVARRE

Campbells Creek (4-10) – became the first team this year to lose to Rovers last round when beaten by 13 points. Would taken an extraordinary form reversal on that result to give the Grasshoppers a scare.

Navarre (11-3) – suffered their third loss of the season last week when beaten by Carisbrook after leading at half-time. Should bounce back in convincing style tomorrow against a team they have monstered since joining the MCDFL in 2011.

DUNOLLY v NATTE BEALIBA

Dunolly (3-11) – were good for the first half against Avoca last week, but have a massive task tomorrow against one of the in-form teams.

Natte Bealiba (9-5) – still a sniff of finishing in the top four after last week’s 26-point win over Lexton. Four wins in a row now for the Swans, during which they’ve conceded just 14 goals.

LEXTON v MALDON

Lexton (9-5) – have surrendered their position in the top four following last week’s defeat to Natte Bealiba. Need to regain some momentum in their season, having now lost three of their past four games after earlier being 8-2.

Maldon (7-7) – with four defeats in a row following a 7-3 start, the Bombers are on their worst losing streak since 2005. A month ago they were contending for a top-four position. Now they’re clinging onto their spot in the top eight on percentage.

NEWSTEAD v TRENTHAM

Newstead (10-4) – belted Trentham by 116 points in round two and should put the Saints to the sword again to win game No.11.

Trentham (2-12) – only kicked three goals last round against Royal Park, but that was enough to notch their second win of the season. Tough day looms tomorrow, though.

TALBOT v ROVERS

Talbot (7-7) – still in the mix to play finals for the first time since 2008 after last week’s win over Maldon. Will climb into the eight tomorrow if they win and Lexton beats Maldon.

Rovers (1-13) – been a tough year for the club, but at least they will avoid a winless season after last round’s 13-point win over Campbells Creek finally broke their duck.

CARISBROOK v HARCOURT (Sunday)

Carisbrook (14-0) – still undefeated after withstanding a spirited challenge from Navarre last week. Will now set themselves to see off another of the top sides in Harcourt in what could be a qualifying final preview.

Harcourt (10-4) – only Carisbrook has a better formline over the past six weeks. They’ve won six in a row and are now into the top four, but can they bridge a 56-point gap against Carisbrook from round two?
