Just a month of tennis remains in the Shepparton District Tennis Association with teams looking to strengthen their form in the run home.
McEwen Reserve Gold has the opportunity to secure a big win as it takes on counterparts McEwen Reserve Green.
While it has been a tough season for Green, the side’s performances have risen since the Christmas break, capped off with a win last week.
Taking on Shepparton North, Green was pushed, but dug deep to claim a 5-44 to 4-38 victory.
The McEwen side had plenty of confidence heading into the match following a strong showing the week prior.
Lara Wayman and Rosemary Hemetsberger made an impression, despite losing to Central Park.
But while Green is enjoying the winning feeling, it is unlikely that will continue this week.
Gold is a superior team that stamped itself as the main competitor to Tallygaroopna this year with a win against St Brendan’s last weekend.
While only taking victory by six games, the club ensured it did not fall to a second straight loss, with the women making an impact.
But the Saints would still fancy itself as a side able to make dent in finals with Brendan McMullan in fine form.
Tallygaroopna awaits as St Brendan’s continues an intense two weeks playing top sides.
Getting close to Tally would instil belief in the side that a grand final berth is a possibility.
Old Students play Shepparton North in what is sure to be a tight battle.
Just four games separated the two sides the last time they met, with the Students narrowly prevailing.
But North will be hoping to turn their fortunes around after a positive showing last week.
Central Park and Kialla Park might not cause too many headaches for the competition’s top sides, but are an ideal match up for each other.
Central Park will be searching for a third win in as many weeks as Kialla Park aims to build upon an enthusiastic showing against Tallygaroopna.
