Southern Football League match preview
Round 19 - Provided by SFL League Management
New Norfolk v Claremont at Boyer, 2pm Saturday
This game is a grand final rematch from last season and it’ll be a ripper of a game to watch as these teams are sitting next to each other on the ladder. The reigning premiers still sit four wins clear over the Eagles but this match will definitely be a close one as the pressure is on and things are heating up leading into the finals.
The last two times that these teams have played produced varied results. Early in the season it was the Magpies who came out on top, but more recently in Round 13 the Eagles turned the tables.
This game could make it three wins in the last four outings for the Magpies against the Eagles including last year’s Grand Final. Alternatively New Norfolk could step up again and fight hard to secure a win. Whoever wins this game it’ll be a very interesting match to watch as the stakes are high and the pressure is on for both teams.
Huonville v Cygnet at Kermandie, 2pm
Cygnet and Huonville both had losses last weekend and the pressure is on this week as these teams are next to each other on the ladder and there’s only one win between them. Cygnet is sitting in front of Huonville but losing to Sorell in Round 18 is not a good sign for this game. The Port will be working hard to redeem themselves and will come out on top of the Lions this week to secure their position on the ladder.
Sorell v Brighton at Pembroke Park, 2pm
Both teams will be fighting hard to secure a win. After several recent wins the Robins moved above Dodges Ferry on the ladder, and need a win this week to secure their position and start moving toward the next spot on the ladder. The Robins had a bye last weekend and will be fresh for this match. Sorell has the home ground advantage and will be hoping this is enough to see them win another round and jump off the bottom of the table.
BYE: Dodges Ferry, Lindisfarne, and Hobart
