Sitting at 28 points apiece, WEST DEVONPORT and Queechy's women's sides put it all on the line on Saturday in a contest with serious finals implications.
Positioned at nine wins, three losses and a draw, only separated by West's superior goal difference, Queechy took the points in round five before sharing the contest in round 10.
SOUTH LAUNCESTON have all to play for as a win against Smithton fully confirms their finals aspirations.
Standing seven points ahead of nearest rivals South Burnie, it would take three consecutive losses to rule the Suns out of contention as Smithton could ruin their party with the upset victory if their regular performers fire.
As SOUTH BURNIE look to keep their mathematical finals chances alive, they face the upcoming Launceston City-Tamar Churinga.
Battling out a 2-all draw in their previous match-up back in round 10, the Coastal side have scored double the amount of LCTC goals this season but Launceston have proven they can cause an upset.
