FOR Terang Mortlake, the goal is simple: make the top five.

But the Bloods know the logistics of cracking into one of the coveted spots are going to be no easy feat.

The young team had been taking big strides before hitting the brick wall that was Koroit last week, but it’s a performance coach Kerrie Crawley says her team is eager to make amends for.

“We never expected Koroit as a win, but we wanted to give them a better game than we did,” she said.

“Our younger ones were a bit intimidated, but they actually don’t realise how good they are. I’m happy with the way they are stepping up and having a go.”

Crawley said the Bloods would be targeting a strong start in their away clash with Cobden on Saturday as they look to reclaim the momentum.

Anna Bourke (appendix) is still two to three weeks away, but Terang Mortlake has called up midcourter Kaitlyn Arnott from division one.
