They might be favourites but Avenel's A-grade netball side has a long hoodoo to overcome agaginst Nagambie.CHALPAT SONTI August 13, 2014 3:17am
It’s not often Avenel is called on to do its arch-rival a favour but that is exactly what the Swans A-grade netball side did on Saturday — not that they probably minded.
Avenel’s excellent season continued with a 50-40 win over Murchison that effectively knocked the Grasshoppers out of finals contention and sealed Nagambie’s spot.
It was also a good way for the Swans to warm up as they seek on Saturday to finally beat the Lakers for the first time since 2007.
Avenel will go into that game favourites, despite blowing a big lead to settle for a draw the first time around.
