What better way to revive flag hopes?

Picola United will be counting on young gun Adam Jorgensen to continue his season's impressive goal-kicking form on Saturday when they go head-to-head with Blighty.

Blighty can revitalise its Picola District Football League north-west division premiership hopes with a win against ladder leader Picola United on Saturday.

Third-placed Blighty has lost two of its past five games, but Jed Brain has been in scintillating form with 44 goals from midfield and is a Pearce Medal contender.

Meanwhile, Picola’s Adam Jorgensen, 17, has also been impressive with 30 goals.

United’s only loss this season came against Strathmerton five weeks ago and Jon Varcoe’s side has responded well with three straight wins before a bye last round.

●Deniliquin Rovers not only let a 20-point lead at three-quarter-time slip last week against Berrigan, but also their finals aspirations.

With just three rounds to go the Rovers sit two wins outside a finals position, meaning they will need to win their remaining games, starting on Saturday against Jerilderie.

The Rovers are one ladder position higher the Demons, but they have won two more games.

The Demons have only registered three wins this season, with one of those last week against Yarroweyah.

Marc Shaw, Brad Parker and Stephen Marshall will all need to stand up again if the Demons are to be any chance of winning.

●A win against Mathoura would anearly guarantee Berrigan the last finals spot.

Lee Schmidt moved heaven and earth last week, kicking six goals to ensure his side ran over the top of Deniliquin in a scintillating affair.

If the playing coach can replicate that form, there is every chance his Saints will be playing finals football.

Mathoura has only beaten wooden spooner Yarroweyah twice for its only two wins.

Only four Timbercutters have kicked six or more goals this season and they will need to find more avenues to goal to be a winning chance on Saturday.

●Yarroweyah hosts Tocumwal to complete the round.

The Bloods, who have won three of their past four games, came from seven points down at three-quarter-time to beat Blighty by 11 points last week.

Sam Boake snared seven majors in a match-winning performance, while Darren Atkinson continued his brilliant campaign.
