Youth Club v Chalambar

It will be a top four clash with fourth-placed Youth Club hosting second-placed Chalambar at North Park to headline the round 13 B Grade fixtures on Saturday.

The winner will move closer to locking in a finals berth but the Clubbers could fall out of the top four if they lose.

A win for Chalambar would mean the team would only need to win one more game to lock in a top four spot.

Rhymney-Moyston v St Andrews

In another game that will have top four ramifications, St Andrews will travel to Moyston hoping to get the points and remain in finals contention.

Both teams are within reach of a finals spot but a round 13 win would be a bonus for either team in the final month of the regular season.

The visitors sit in third spot while the home team could sneak into fourth position with a big win if the Clubbers lose.

Swifts-Great Western v Halls Gap

The Combine will look to maintain top spot when they host the Gappers at Great Western.

The Gappers have lacked consistency throughout the season but an upset win away from home could be the catalyst for a charge towards finals with the team sitting one win outside the top four.

Swifts-Great Western sit nine points clear at the top and has already ensured they will play finals with four games remaining.

Willaura v Wickliffe-Lake Bolac

Willaura was forced to forfeit its round 12 match which has left it vulnerable of missing out on finals but a home game against Wickliffe-Lake Bolac should see the team back on the winners list.

Wickliffe-Lake Bolac were also involved in a forfeit last week, getting the points from Youth Club but still remain out of contention for finals, sitting in the bottom two.

Willaura will need to get the points to keep in touch with some tough games still to come before finals.

Pomonal v Buangor

Both teams are unlikely to feature in finals but bottom-placed Pomonal will be desperate to get the points and move up from the bottom spot.

The team has shown that when it plays well, they can match most sides in the competition and Buangor will need to be wary.

Buangor is two games out of fourth spot, so can mathematically qualify but a win on Saturday will be necessary to keep the team’s hopes alive.

With no long weekend this time, teams should be back to full strength, meaning all teams should take to the field without forfeiting.

Games are scheduled to start at 1pm.
