Maryborough faces a huge task on the netball court this weekend, taking on top three side Kangaroo Flat in round 17.
The Magpies have endured a tough season, having recently dropped to eighth place on the ladder after its 10th loss — but it’s not quite over yet.
Flat was uncontrollable in round eight, dominating the game from the outset and defeating Maryborough 57-36.
The Pies will be looking to improve on this result this weekend in their second last game of the season.
Maryborough will then take on a more manageable Strathfieldsaye the following week, hoping to end 2019 on a high.
The Magpies have shown their competitive ability against strong sides in the past, especially at their home court, with the most impressive showing coming in round 15 where they limited top of the ladder side Gisborne to a 10-goal win.
