Avenel's A-grade netball side will face old rival Nagambie on Sunday in its first appearance since 2007.CHALPAT SONTI August 28, 2014 3:23am
Avenel’s A-grade netball side suffered its second loss in a row as it heads into finals — and it will be without two key players in the first week.
The Swans were beaten 51-36 at third-placed Tallygaroopna to end up fourth on the ladder and will now take on fifth-placed Nagambie at Violet Town on Sunday.
Avenel will have to break a seven-year hoodoo to advance to the next step in the finals series, having not beaten Nagambie since 2007, and losing by two goals to the Lakers a fortnight ago.
However the Swans have an experienced side that should be well suited to finals and with the other game this season between the two old enemies ending in a draw, there is nothing between the teams.
