Mordialloc vs Murrumbeena (Ben Kavanagh Reserve)
The match up we have all been waiting for is finally here as the two undefeated sides, Mordialloc and Murrumbeena come face to face at Ben Kavanagh Reserve on Sunday.
Mordialloc is the more experienced of the two sides, with their core of players having football experience prior to this season and it shows with their all round skills.
Murrumbeena is the fastest side in the competition and despite their lack of size; they make up for it with their cleanness below their feet.
It should go down to the wire, and the only thing that separates the two sides is the more complete forward line of the Bloods.
Mordialloc by two points.
East Brighton vs Edithvale Aspendale (Hurlingham Park)
The opening game of the round has East Brighton host Edithvale Aspendale at Hurlingham Park on Friday night.
The Vampires form has been on the rise in the past few rounds and the increased development of a well rounded midfield group has lead to some unreal football.
Edi-Asp was bought back down to earth with a round nine loss and will need a lot to go right to gain their third win on the year.
East Brighton by 55 points.
Oakleigh District vs Hallam (Princes Highway Reserve)
The second Friday night game has the fresh winners Hallam travel to Princes Highway Reserve to face Oakleigh District.
Oakleigh District is outside the top four for the first time since round one and was no match for Murrumbeena in round nine, despite impressive effort as they were short without ruck Jess Szalek.
Hallam has found goal kickers in the last few weeks and it bodes well for a team with a still mathematical chance of making finals.
Oakleigh District by 23 points.
Lyndhurst vs Highett (Marriott Waters Reserve)
Highett travel to Marriott Waters Reserve to face Lyndhurst on Saturday, with the hope that a strong win will strengthening the Bulldogs top four position.
Lyndhurst is now on their own on the bottom on the ladder, even though they have lead in most games early on.
Highett have jumped back into finals contention on the back of their core, including the star power of Ally Gilchrist, Hannah Bowey and Tyra Josiah.
Highett by 56 points.
Bentleigh vs Endeavour Hills (Bentleigh Reserve)
The final game of the round pits Bentleigh against Endeavour Hills, with a win for either side breaking their losing streak.
Bentleigh dropped their second straight game, this time to the fourth-placed Bulldogs. But look for their strong defence to pull out all the stops here.
Endeavour Hills dropped their game against a red hot East Brighton side, who maintained midfield dominance throughout. If the Falcons gain midfield ascendency, the will come away from Bentleigh with the win.
Endeavour Hills by four points.
