THIS week’s match of the day that completes the split round is between the big rivals, Shepparton and Shepparton United.
The Bears sit in second spot and on paper look like a comfortable winner but the Demons have shown some great signs that they are about to climb the ladder with a great group of young players.
Luke Smith was on fire two weeks ago with seven goals against Seymour along with Harry Boyd, Nick Rokahr and favourite son, Nick Allan. United on the other hand are coming off a comfortable win two weeks ago with Ben Bingham being best afield. Jack Norman has become a star of the competition and along with Matt Di Bella and the two big boys in Tom McCluskey and Sam Buxton, the Demons will fancy their chances to upset the Bears. The Bears however, are wanting to secure second spot and will not drop this one.
The other game on Saturday will see Benalla win comfortably at home against Mooroopna and on Sunday Rochester will travel to Kings Park, Seymour and will go home empty handed as the Lions sneak over the line.
