Lakers raising the bar high

By Seymour Telegraph

Nagambie are still the benchmark in the KDNL as they continue its undefeated streak.

The Lakers called on the help of young guns Alicia McLeod and Tasman Taylor-Lloyd again after its impressive debut in A-grade last week.

With five of its regular players out for the long weekend due to injury and work, the Lakers also reached out to B-grade player Kate Miller.

Coach Abby Misiti said it was great to be able to call on other players to help fill the side.

‘‘It’s definitely a positive to know that we have girls that can step up when we need them,’’ Misiti said.

As the halfway mark of the season is reached, the Lakers are looking to continue their terrific form.

‘‘I think we’ve been quite consistent at putting four quarters together,’’ Misiti said.

‘‘We have some tough games ahead with Murchison-Toolamba and Dookie; being a new side we don’t know much about them.’’

Nagambie’s next game is against Merrigum at home for their Freeze MND round.

‘‘We’ll be wearing blue socks to show our support and awareness for Motor Neuron Disease,’’ Misiti said.

That game will be played at Nagambie at 2.15pm Saturday.
