Sunbury last lost a game of A-grade netball in September last year, going down in a semi final to North Ballarat City by a single goal.
But, since then, the Lions went on to claim the ultimate prize, a premiership, and remain undefeated and on top of the Ballarat Football Netball League ladder six rounds into season 2018.
But Sebastopol is ready for the challenge.
The Burras have had a tough start to the season, having already played games against North Ballarat City, East Point and Lake Wendouree, which are the teams to round out the top four.
The other two games the Burras have played this season have been victories over Ballarat and Darley.
But Sebastopol player-coach Georgia Cann said after the game against Darley last week, her players impressed her with their perseverance and team effort.
This attitude will be key against Sunbury at Clarke Oval on Saturday.
“We’re looking forward to Sunbury,” Cann said.
“It’s that high standard of netball that you meet in the first six weeks of competition, that’s always good because you know where you’re at and what needs to be refined.
“We’ve had a couple of good results playing against Sunbury in previous years, so we’re looking forward to a good game on the weekend.”
