NAB League Girls: Round 6 Preview

It's Round 6 of the NAb League Girls competition. This Sunday it's a David vs Goliath match where the Western Jets face the unbeaten Geelong Falcons at Downer Oval. The Jets are on a high after their first victory last week but with players like Isabella Grant and Isabelle Pritchard missing, Geelong will be a tough task.

Possible key matchups

 

Luka Lesosky-Hay vs Elisabet Georgostathis

When it comes to molding good midfielders, Geelong are artists. Luka Lesosky-Hay is ranked No.1 for disposals with 112 for the season. Georgostathis played the role of half-back flanker and inside midfielder against the Rebels, but with Grant out the Jets will need some star power in the center. 

 

Mia Skinner vs Ciara Singleton  

Isabelle Pritchard would have been a perfect matchup for Skinner, but with her absence, Singleton is the next best option. Skinner is the leading goalkicker of the NAB League, she has kicked 11 goals from five games and is a tough task for any defender to contain. However, with the form Westerns backline showed the previous week, Singleton may surprise.

 

Abby Chapman vs Laura Wright

Last week Laura Wright applied real pressure in her forward half and was rewarded with three goals. Chapman is a former TAC Cup premiership player and one of Geelong's more offensive defenders. Wright will have to bring the pain to get the reward because Chapman is one tough customer.
