KANGAROO Valley’s junior team will look to advance their position higher than third on the Shoalhaven Hockey Junior Competition when they come up against fourth placed Allsorts at 10am at Bernie Regan Sporting Complex.
Although just one position higher than Allsorts, the newly formed Valley juniors are just three points away from the number one ladder position in what is an extremely close junior competition.
The second junior game will kick off at 11am and will be a top of the table clash between first ranked Bluejays and second placed St Georges Basin.
These teams clashed in round one which saw Bluejays just take the win 8-7, however the next time they met St Georges Basin won comfortably.
Bluejays will be hoping Callum McKay will be on side to be competitive against Basin.
The women’s competition will start at 1pm and will be a third v fourth clash between St Georges Basin White and Shoalhaven Heads Maroon.
This will be immediately followed by the strong Allsorts Green team and their match against St Georges Basin Red.
Allsorts Green are tied for first position on the top of the competition table so will be looking for a win to maintain this and not drop behind their competitive club mates Allsorts Orange.
The men’s game between St Georges Basin and Kangaroo Valley will start at 4pm.
These teams have already faced each other and although Kangaroo Valley won 3-1 on the day, the result was reversed as the Valley team had not submitted their team sheets.
Valley sits at the top of the table and will be keen to make sure they remain the victors this week.
This game will be followed at 5.30pm with fourth placed Burrawang against sixth placed Shoalhaven Heads.
Burrawang easily accounted for Heads 4-2 the first time these two teams met, and will be looking to repeat history.
The final game will be played at 7pm between Allsorts and Bluejays.
Allsorts previously won this clash 5-3, however the result was reversed as Allsorts had an unregistered player.
Second ranked Bluejays sit just one competition point above Allsorts, so this game will be one to hang around for.
