NEW Kids Aces coach Lisa Reynoldson is confident they are building toward a legitimate shot at going one better than last year after their strong form continued in Wagga Netball on Wednesday night.
The third-placed Aces went down by three goals to Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes in last year's grand final, and their only two losses this season have been against the Goannas.
The Aces defeated Nixons 99-54 on Wednesday to move to 6-2, and are behind only MCUE and Charles Sturt University on the table.
"As the season goes further I feel more and more confident we'll be hitting our stride come finals time," Reynoldson said.

"We've got a lot of girls who have played a lot of netball and are very experienced, but it's their first time playing together and they're really starting to read off each other now."
