Demons to meet Hamilton Roos

Horsham Demons will take on Hamilton Kangaroos in Deakin University Female Football League when competition resumes on Sunday.

The Demons play the Kangaroos at Horsham City Oval after defeat at the hands of a well-drilled South Warrnambool last weekend, also in Horsham.

South Warrnambool won the contest in slippery conditions 0.19 (19) to 1.0 (6).

The Demons’ engine room, led by Megan Pohlner out of the centre with aerial assistance from Brit Keller and help from Alex Lang, has been a standout for the Horsham side.

Horsham will need another big four-quarter effort this week against the Kangaroos. Kate McLean has been in deadly form in front of goals for the past two weeks and has had great help from Jessie Ferguson across half forward.

The last time the two sides met, Hamilton jumped out of the blocks to be well up at half time before a fast-finishing Demon outfit just fell short of snatching the points.

With the development and improvement of the Demons over the first half of the season, another blockbuster game is set to unfold Sunday afternoon, at 1pm.

In the other match, Portland takes on undefeated South Warrnambool.

Horsham’s best players: S. Robinson, M. Pohlner, B. Keller, N. Mustafa, M. Atkins, A. Lang. Other result: Portland Tigers 8.18 (66) d Hamilton Kangaroos 0.3 (3).

Juniors: This week, Horsham Saints v Terang-
