Mid North Saturday Pennants

There is an early logjam at the top of the Mid North Saturday Pennants division one ladder after round two was completed last Saturday.

Robertstown currently occupies first place with only percentage separating them from Mintaro who are close behind in second place. Both teams have taken 20 points from the opening two games with only 0.15 per cent the difference.

In round one, Roberstown narrowly defeated Spalding 59-53 but had a convincing win over Saddleworth over the weekend, finishing 77-59.

Mintaro easily took care of Auburn in round one with a 76-56 win, but were tested in round two by Clare Gold with a narrow 64-60 triumph.

Elsewhere, Watervale fell from first place down to third over the weekend, only taking eight points from their win over Burra.

They remain in the mix on 18 points and join the top two as the only undefeated teams in the competition over the opening stages of the season.

Burra fell down to fourth place with their defeat by Watervale, trailing their opponents from the weekend by four points. Clare Blue and Spalding are still without a win so far this season.

In round three, Burra will look to hand Robertstown their first loss of the season, while Mintaro can extended their undefeated start to the season out to three games by defeating the win-less Spalding.

Things are already beginning to heat up in division two with only four points separating first and four place.

Clare Green sit a top the ladder in first place on 24 points but there is three teams hot on their heels with Clare Red, Burra and Blyth locked into a three way tie all on 20 points. All four teams have recorded wins in the first two games.

Robertstown and Watervale’s division two teams did not play in the opening round, but in round two both teams had losses. Sadd Blue defeated Watervale 63-59, while Clare Green defeated Robertstown 70-52.

Sadd Gold, Mintaro, Watervale and Spalding are all without a win to open the season.

Auburn and Clare White both had wins in round two over Mintaro and Booborowie respectively.

The undefeated Clare Green will look to put further distance between the chasing pack when they host last placed Sadd Gold this coming weekend, while Booborowie will aim to get back to winning ways against second placed Clare Red.

One of Watervale and Spalding will get off the mark this weekend when they do battle.

Elsewhere Roberstown hosts Mintaro, Sadd Blue takes on Auburn, Blyth faces Clare White and Burra goes head to head with Hallett.
