HUNTLY'S bid to rebound from a shock loss faces the ultimate test this Saturday.

Looking to recover from an upset defeat to Lockington-Bamawm United, the Hawks must confront an undefeated Colbinabbin.

Huntly (7-4) had worked itself into a handy position to secure the double chance, but now sits only one win ahead of a group of three teams challenging for higher honours, including Mount Pleasant, Leitchville-Gunbower (6-5) and Lockington-Bamawm United (6-6).

With the Blues and Bombers to clash with bottom pair Elmore and Heathcote, and the Cats starting favourites against North Bendigo, as many as four teams could finish the round on seven wins if the Hawks cannot upstage the Grasshoppers.

Huntly was on level terms with the reigning premiers at half time of their round five clash.

If the Hawks can sustain that sort of pressure they are a chance of upsetting the all-conquering Grasshoppers, who are coming off a pair of plus-45 goal wins.

Lockington-Bamawm United will be aiming for a fourth consecutive win when it plays the Bulldogs, while Mount Pleasant is chasing three out of four against Elmore.

White Hills has the bye.
