Cricketers across the region will be keen to resume play this week after rain disrupted many games last weekend.
Match of the round in Horsham Cricket Association looks set to be Homers versus Saints, with the top two sides in full swing preparations for finals.
Chris and Simon Hopper, coming off solid performances in the Pigeons’ win over Laharum, will lead Homers, the standout side in season 2015-16.
Simon Hopper made an unbeaten 84 runs, while Chris took 3-24 in the only match to be played in Horsham A Grade on the weekend.
With just two rounds remaining before finals, A Grade returns to two-day matches on Saturday.
In other matches, Jung Tigers host Lubeck-Murtoa and Laharum plays Rupanyup-Minyip.
In West Wimmera cricket, Jeparit will look to continue its winning ways, this time taking on top team Nhill.
Led by dominant figure Mick Preston, 69 runs against Kiata on Saturday, Jeparit will need to throw everything at Nhill to score a win.
Jeparit’s bowling attack is in form leading into the Nhill match –Trevor James cleaned up Kiata’s tail with 3-5 after Tom Crowhurst, 2-21, and Jeremy Preston, 2-24, did the early damage.
