LUBECK-MURTOA and Quantong have the chance to join Rup-Minyip at the top of the table when round four of the Horsham Cricket Association B Grade competition kicks off on Saturday.
The round marks the first lot of two-day matches this season.
Blackheath-Dimboola has withdrawn its B Grade team, which means only two matches will be played in the B Grade competition each week.
Quantong faces the tough task of padding up against Rup-Minyip at Minyip on Saturday.
Rup-Minyip has jumped out of the blocks this season to post three wins and sit undefeated on top of the ladder.
In the other match, Jung Tigers will need to bring their A game if they are a chance to knock off Lubeck-Murtoa, which smashed Horsham Saints by 88 runs at Coughlin Park at the weekend.
Hamish Gawith and Heath Lang were almost unstoppable for the Mudlarks, with Gawith notching up 71 runs and Lang taking 4-8.
In round three C Grade action, teams will compete in the first round of Twenty20 matches this season.
The C Grade fixture includes two Twenty20 rounds this year, with the second round to be played in the last round before the holiday break.
Top-four teams Quantong and Jung Tigers will go head to head at Dudley Cornell Park in the match of the round.
Quantong is coming off a six-wicket win over Laharum and will hope to cont-inue its good form against the Tigers.
Horsham Cricket Association secretary Darren Chesterfield said the Homers and Horsham Saints match also loomed as an intriguing battle.
He said with Horsham Saints’ B Grade team having the bye this round because of Blackheath-Dimboola’s exit from the competition, the Saints’ C Grade team could benefit.
“They will probably have a few players drop back, which will give them a boost,” he said.
The Bullants will meet Laharum at Sunnyside, while Blackheath-Dimboola will take on Colts.
Mr Chesterfield said the Bulls would go in as favourites.
Natimuk-Goroke has the bye.
