LOCKINGTON Bamawm United’s netballers were decimated by a far superior White Hills on Saturday afternoon.
The Hillies put on a show at their home courts, recording an 82-11 win over the struggling Cats at the Tint-A-Car Oval courts.
The mammoth loss means the Cats sit ninth (and dead last) in the Heathcote and District Netball League after three rounds.
With a points percentage of just over 40, the Cats have not won in the 2018 season.
White Hills on the other hand, sit second on eight points after two matches (having had the bye early on), with a points percentage of more than 450.
It will be cause for concern for Amanda Walker and her team behind the scenes, as they must rapidly prepare for North Bendigo in round five, on May 5.
But before that, the Cats have a much-needed bye.
The bye will provide the struggling Lockington side with a chance for respite, and a fortnight to think about how they will change the way they tackle matches.
The Cats will be glad to see that they have already played three of the top four sides as the current ladder suggests.
With losses to Mt Pleasant (round one), Huntly (round two), and now White Hills, the Cats will take on fellow strugglers North Bendigo, who sit in eighth.
The Bulldogs are also win-less after three, but have a much better points percentage than the Cats.
That match will take place in round five of the HDNL on May 5 at the Cattery, from 2.45pm onwards.
