Panthers prepare to take on Terriers
The Pinkies and the Panthers return to McGrane Oval for round 13 of the Christie and Hood Castlereagh League competition this weekend but in slightly different circumstances.
The Pinkies will get the action underway on
Friday night when they host the Gulgong Lady
The Gulgong girls have some other commitments
on Saturday so they have requested to play
on Friday night.
This is a big game for both sides as
the Pinkies sit in fourth position on 28 points, just
in advance of Gulgong with 26 points.
A loss for
either side in this congested competition could be
see them slip off the pace as the season heats up.
The Panthers will be in action on Saturday following
a huge morning of junior league and the
Panthers will be looking to turn the tables on the
Terriers following their loss to them back in round
four, when Gulgong outmuscled the Panthers on
their home track.
As is with the tag competition, a
win is imperative to stay in the top four.
The Panthers currently sit alongside Cobar at
the top of the ladder, while Gulgong are in equal
fourth position just four points behind the Panthers.
While the Panthers have suffered some key
injuries in recent weeks, Coach Towney, has some
very capable replacements to step up and take
their spots in the side.
Towney is well aware of the importance of every
game ahead of the Panthers and it all starts at
McGrane on Saturday when the Panthers try to
reverse their loss earlier in the season.
It should be a great day of footy action as the Panther Junior leaguers start the day early against Gulgong, running right through to the big game in front of their home crowd.
