CASTERTON-Sandford can lay the foundations for a successful Western Border season if it can defeat last year’s runner-up West Gambier today, and coach Dylan Ayton sees the game as a big opportunity for the Cats.
“That’s the way we’re looking at it,” he said.
“This could be the stepping stone to having a really good year, and we don’t want to be chasing our tails all year and just scrape into the finals.
“We expect to be top two … that was our goal at the start of the year to be top two or three, so we need to win this week to get our confidence up and hopefully take it into East, and hopefully get through that with a win before we take on the giants in North, but we’re not going to look too far ahead.
“If we can just play some good footy and get over the line this week, and keep building with every game going into finals … that’s our plan and it’s a really, really important week for us.”
