Redemption on their minds

Redemption will be on the minds of High School Old Girls and Waikohu in Pak’nSave premier-grade netball at the YMCA tomorrow night.

Both teams tasted defeat in their most recent matches.

Their 7.30pm match is a chance to get back on a winning way.

HSOG lost by 10 goals to YMP on Saturday and Waikohu lost 50-39 to Girls’ High Senior A.

“I expect all players to come out firing tomorrow night,” netball commentator Sherrill Beale said.

“Taste One HSOG beat Waikohu by nine goals in the last round and they have been playing well as a team.

“However, Claydens Waikohu have shown improvement since then and have also been playing well as a team.”

Waikohu coach Cheryl Te Rito said the loss to the students last week was shocking.

“We will take tomorrow night as any other game and I hope we can clean up the mistakes we made in the last game.”

Te Rito hopes to have the in-form Stormy Merritt available.

“We will go out there, do our best and see what happens.”

HSOG coach Tanya Owen will be after a 60-minute effort from her side.

They let YMP dominate for the second quarter of last Saturday’s game and it cost them the game.

HSOG showed in the other three-quarters of that match that they could foot it with the best teams in the competition.

The first match at 6pm sees training mates Whangara Old Girls and Lytton Senior A in action.

“If the students can eliminate the errors that crept into their game last week, it will be a similarly close game,” Beale said.

Ronnie Martin coaches both teams.

“I will look after Lytton and Tracey Babbington-Maynard will take care of the Whangara girls,” Martin said.

“The Lytton team always lift for this game.

“It’s a shame they couldn’t do it for all games, but we are working on that.

“I expect it to be close again.”
