Macedon and Riddell have set up a top-of-the-table clash for next Saturday in the Riddell District Netball League.

Both have won all their eight matches after Macedon beat Romsey and Riddell rolled Rockbank on Saturday.

The Cats were made to work hard for their 55-47 win over the Redbacks at Romsey Park.

The Cats led at every break and each time it looked as if they would blow the game away, the Redbacks fought back.

Macedon led by five goals at three-quarter time and didn’t let the Redbacks get any closer.

Rebecca Colwell scored 48 goals for the Cats, while Hope Evans was just as strong at the other end with 41.

The Bombers continued their winning run, 52-30 against the Rams.

Lancefield had its game won at quarter-time when it led 19-4 against Woodend-Hesket.

The Tigers extended that in each quarter, and with Courtney Annett scoring 40 goals and Savaii Williams chipping in with 30, the final score was 78-15.

Kilmore got its first win of the season in a thriller against Sunbury Kangaroos.

Kilmore had to survive a second half comeback from the Kangaroos to win 29-26.

They led by eight goals at half-time and six after three-quarters as the Kangaroos continued to push for a win.

Samantha George was the best for Kilmore and Toni Fogarty the standout for the Kangaroos.
