Valleys set to steamroll Yaralla Owls

By GREGOR MACTAGGARTmactaggartg@gladstoneobserver.com.au

UNBEATEN Valley Stars will go into tonight's Gladstone Netball Association A grade clash against Yaralla Owls as one of the most red-hot favourites of all time.

The young Owls have got a huge test in front of them against the Stars who have won all 12 A grade matches this season.

With a line-up that includes a number of big guns such as team captain Tracey Calis, Michelle Jones, Andrea Williams and Sandra Collette, it is no wonder the Stars are doing so well.

Even so, the Owls will be no pushovers.

Zoe Auty and Sam Dippel have been the Owls' standout performers and expect them to play well again tonight.

Action starts at 8pm.

The other match of the round is expected to be a cracker when club-mates Yaralla Falcons and Yaralla Eagles go toe to toe with second spot on the line.

Falcons' form has been solid, rather than spectacular in the last few weeks and they will have their work cut out for them against the in-form Eagles.

The Eagles almost pulled off the impossible in last week's one goal loss to Valley Stars and would have gained bucketful's of confidence.

Players certain to have a big impact on the result are Falcons duo Leisa Lowe and Melanie Frost and Eagles stars Lindy Taylor and Kym Hetherington.

This match should go right down to the wire.

Action starts at 6.45pm.
