THE Bendigo Netball League will get a glimpse of what the finals may be like with top four teams facing each other this weekend. 

Ladder-leaders Kangaroo Flat will play against the fourth-placed Golden Square and Gisborne will host Kyneton. 

The last time Kangaroo Flat and Golden Square played the Roos won by 10 goals. 

This time around Golden Square coach Lia Marrone hopes to turn the tables on last year's grand finalists. 

"Kangaroo Flat had a strong hold on that game," she said. 

"However we have progressed since that point and we hope to be much more competitive this time around.

"This week will be a real test for our team and we are quite pumped to be facing Kangaroo Flat again."

Marrone said if the A-grade team played its own game it would have a good chance of winning the game. 

She said finishing in the top two was a real possibility for Golden Square. 

"We are aiming to give our best in every upcoming game which will hopefully lead us to the top end of the ladder," Marrone said. 

The results of the matche could prove crucial for the league's final standings with only two points separating the top four teams. 

"I think that over the last few seasons the competition within the BFNL A-grade netball has been fairly even," she said. 

"There are no clear winners in any game which makes for an exciting season."

Golden Square and Kangaroo Flat will play at My Jet Oval at 3.20pm on Sunday. 

Kyneton will also aim to turn the tables on Gisborne. 

The Dogs won by three goals the last time they met. 

Since then the Tigers haven't dropped a game, they came a draw with Kangaroo Flat in round eight. 

The game will be played at Gardiner Reserve at 3.20pm on Saturday.

In other round 12 Bendigo Netball League games, Eaglehawk will host South Bendigo at Canterbury Park. 

Eaglehawk will be chasing its second win of the season while South Bendigo are hoping to bounce back after a loss last weekend. 

Sandhurst will play against Strathfieldsaye at Queen Elizabeth Oval.
