Last round:
North Geelong Warriors 3 – 4 Pascoe Vale
Port Melbourne 4 – 0 Oakleigh Cannons


There have been 14 goals across North Geelong’s last two matches, and both times the Warriors have been on the end of a 4-3 defeat.

This week, they come up against Port Melbourne, a side which has been threatening to show its class over the last six weeks, and finally did so against Oakleigh last week.

After two weeks without a goal, Kamal Ibrahim found his scoring boots and continued his exploits against Oakleigh, catapulting himself into fourth on the scoring charts with four goals.

Meanwhile North Geelong can boast to having the top goalscorer in the league after Round 6, with Robert Zadworny nabbing six goals in as many rounds.

Despite its prolific goalscoring, the Warriors continue to have problems leaking goals.

Conceding four goals two weeks in a row could be a worry for Micky Colina; he’ll need the Warriors to do what Avondale did and keep a dangerous Port Melbourne at bay if they’re to get anything from this match.
