Hoppers out for upset

BOOMA Hoppers will be out to cause the upset of the season when they host the NASC Knightriders today.

The bottom-placed Hoppers, who have won just one of eight games this season, take on the competition ladder-leader in what shapes as an uneven contest.

North Albury football stars Kade Brown and Matt McDonald — the competition’s leading runscorers — will be looking to further boost their healthy batting averages.

McDonald, who scored 116 not out against Tavern Panthers in December, is the only player to score a ton this season and will have his eye on a second today.

The Panthers, meanwhile, host the G.J. Gardner Bulldogs at Noreuil Park, and should have little trouble accounting for the struggling Bulldogs.
