HUNTLY-North Epsom will be striving to inflict Golden Square's first loss of the Bendigo District Cricket Association season when they meet at Wade Street in round three on Saturday.
The sides played two thrilling games last season, with the Power winning by one run in their one-dayer and nine wickets down in their two-day match.
Will this clash be another thriller?
GOLDEN SQUARE - a 2-0 start for Golden Square, having proven too good for Sandhurst and Kangaroo Flat in its opening two games.
Scott Johnson has been quick to again stamp his authority on the competition
Three-time BDCA Cricketer of the Year Scott Johnson has been quick to again stamp his authority on the competition, making 106 last week against Sandhurst to go with three wickets and two catches.
Johnson's five votes last week in the Bendigo Advertiser-Bicknells Player of the Year Award was the 21st time since the 2007-08 season he has picked up the maximum votes.
Grant Connelly (108 runs) and Jason Johnson (82) have also made good starts with the bat, while Luke Baird has picked up five wickets.
HUNTLY-NORTH EPSOM - notched up its first win last week with an 18-run victory over Kangaroo Flat.
Captain Linc McRae (51 runs) and Michael Hanson (78) have both scored half-centuries in the opening two games, while the Power will be hoping recruit Dylan Gibson (0 and 2) can find some form with the bat.
Will be underdogs for this game, but as they proved twice last season, the Power match-up well with Square.
