Horsham Saints and Stawell remain gripped in a battle for a swinging fifth spot on Wimmera Netball Association’s ladder as teams head into the second-last home-and-away round of the season.
Horsham Saints cling desperately to a place in the finals by four points from the Warriors.
But the Coughlin Park force faces the daunting task of needing to beat either top team Horsham this Saturday or second-top side Minyip-Murtoa the following week to guarantee its place.
Stawell kept the door open for a serious challenge for a finals berth with a heavy 50-38 win over the Saints at the weekend and faces Nhill on Saturday, before running into Horsham in a gripping minor-season finish.
The wash-up might well come down to percentage and it’s Stawell that holds the advantage over the Saints going into games on Saturday.
Of course Nhill, sitting bottom with a solitary victory this season, appears the wildcard in the equation and could pull out all stops and upset Stawell’s applecart on its home court at Davis Park.
