Big matches are on the cards for this weekend's round 15 of the 2022 CVFL Women's season.
Kyneton (8-3, 218.47%) is currently fourth on the ladder and primed for a spot in the fast-approaching finals but face a tough match-up on Saturday night at Wade Street against second-placed Golden Square (8-2, 609.49%).
Tigers will need to win against the Bulldogs in order to safely fend off fifth-placed Eaglehawk (5-5, 217.01%) who trail behind and are equally determined to book a spot in the business end of the season.
Hawks' first opportunity to score valuable points and rise up the ladder comes on Sunday at Canterbury Park against third-placed Bendigo Thunder (8-3, 569.27%) who last week handed the Bulldogs their second loss of the season.
The 4.5 (29) to 2.4 (16) win at Weeroona Oval lifted the Thunder to the same points as second-placed Golden Square with four rounds remaining, but the Bulldogs do have a game in hand.
North Bendigo (0-11, 1.48%) are yet to score a win this season but will have a proper opportunity to get it done on Sunday when they host Kerang (1-8, 3.5%) on Sunday at Atkins Street.
Castlemaine (11-0, 1001.08%) remains on top of the ladder undefeated and will face a bye this weekend.
Sixth-placed Strathfieldsaye (3-9, 28.15%) will also sit out this round with a bye.
Including round 15, four more weeks remain of the regular season before the first week of finals in late August.
