With the top four beginning to take shape in the GNL, its leading sides get a good look at each other as they lock horns this weekend.
Kicking the round off at St Leonards on Friday night, QUEECHY PENGUINS sit comfortably in fourth but will need to be at the top of their game as they face South Launceston.
The Suns come off a 2-0 loss against the dominant Burnie Baptist outfit but the reigning premiers can never be counted out and defeated Queechy 6-2 in their match-up earlier.
Queechy still pose a dangerous threat to the Suns, having enjoyed a five-week undefeated streak following their round one loss and dominating City Marians 7-1 last week.
In the other top-four showdown, LAUNCESTON CITY travel up the Coast to face ladder-leaders and 2017 premiers Burnie Baptist as they aim to show the full extent of their improvement against the competition's biggest test.
City fell to Baptist 2-0 in round one as prominent Burnie pair Khan Riley and Braden Johnson found the back of the net and City's experienced defence will need to be on full alert to stop the dangerous duo.
Disregarding a slight round 11 hiccup in a shock 2-1 loss to Devonport, Burnie Baptist have been clinical in their 10 victories so far this season, defeating reigning premiers South Launceston twice and recording a superb 55 goals as they aim to reclaim the title.
DEVONPORT have produced some quality hockey over the past month and are one of several sides in the hunt for a late charge towards finals, starting with a cross-town derby against West Devonport.
Sitting two wins behind fourth-placed Queechy, the in-form side picked up a shock win over Burnie Baptist a fortnight ago as well as a clinical 4-0 performance over Smithton last week.
West Devonport are yet to pick up a victory this season but have hit the scoreboard more regularly over the past few weeks and could certainly take advantage of a Devonport slip-up.
SOUTH BURNIE host City Marians in yet another intriguing encounter between two sides on the outer bubble of finals.
The hosts have a reputation of being a dangerous scoring side with Stuart Bowles, Jordan Dart and Brent Jago all renowned scorers and Marians are in a rebuilding period after several years towards the top of the competition, having picked up four wins and seven losses across their 11 games this season to sit in seventh place.
The women's competition features a bye for all sides due to uneven rounds.
