YVG Ariels all set for Round 1

Ariels, Fri Feb 6, 2015 5:32PM

YARRA Valley Grammar Ariels will kick off their Victorian Netball League season this weekend with two games in two days, including one against last year's Championship and Division 1 premiers.

The Ariels Championship and Division 1 girls will take on Southern Saints - who won a pair of premierships last season - in their opening matches on Saturday, February 7. The 19/U team will be first up on Court 2 at the State Netball Hockey Centre from 3pm, with Championship at 4.20pm and Division 1 at 5.40pm.

Championship will be without returning star goaler Stephanie Puopolo, who has been called into the Melbourne Vixens squad for their pre-season tournament in Sydney.

Sunday will see Ariels tackle new VNL franchise Ballarat Sovereigns, which was formed out of the ashes of original VNL team Ballarat Sovereigns at the end of last season.

Championship will have an early start for the Round 2 clash, taking to the court at 9am, with 19/U to follow at 10.20am and Division 1 at 11.40am.

We hope to see as many YVG Ariels supporters as possible down there!
