RANGER: Lance Appleby in action for Marble Range last weekend.

Port Lincoln football

Port Lincoln football has one more round of football before a two week break and this weekend will see a top two clash at Mallee Park as well as what should be a fierce clash at Wangary.

Mallee Park v Tasman, Mallee Park

An exciting top two clash headlines this weekend as a red hot Mallee Park host the undefeated Tasman.

The Peckers only have one player in doubt with Derick Wanganeen facing a fitness test but have a big pool to choose from.

Darryl Dudley and Waylon Johncock should be back in and a number of players who played in reserves last weekend, including Graham Johncock, Ky Miller, Justin Lindsay and coach Wes Bilney are all also chances.

For Tasman Jace Rodda will face a fitness test but the team will be mostly unchanged following their 96-point win against Lincoln South last weekend.

It will be a real midfield battle to see who will have the more effective run and carry, not to mention whose forward line will be firing.

Tasman have Johann Wagner leading the way with Brent Harris and Ben Daniels also proving effective in front of goal.

Kingsley Bilney Jnr should rack up possessions and clearances for the Peckers while Malcolm Miller will look for another big day in front of goal.

This game will be a toss up but Tasman may still have the edge for now for a close win.

Marble Range v Boston, Wangary

Smarting from a one point loss to Wayback last weekend Marble Range will look to bounce back in style against Boston at home.

The Tigers should see Callum Saunders in while Thomas Reynolds-Rowe, Mitchell Wilbe, Otis Carter and Jack Jacobs will be tested for inclusion.

Rangers will be without Levi Smith and Sam Haskett this weekend.

Boston's defensive pressure has been really good as of late and will need to be on their toes against Rangers, who are good at hitting their targets especially leading centre half forward Tynan Keeley.

Add pressure from defenders like Zac Calderwood and Wade Hansen and the run of Lance Appleby and Billy Byass through the middle and they will have plenty of avenues to their 50.

Boston will look to Brodie Falciani to win the clearances in the middle and the run of Adam Davies and Willy Woldt to move the ball down the wings, it will be a question as to whether the Tigers can make the most of stoppages.

Boston are a good chance of a win, but Rangers do well at home and should get the win here.

Wayback v Lincoln South, Centenary

Wayback are bolstered by last week's win and could enter the top three with a win against Lincoln South this weekend.

The Demons look to be mostly unchanged although reserves players like Dylan Giesberts and Daniel Harders are knocking on the door of A grade selection.

Wayback can dictate the game with their contested pressure and will look to be well served in the ruck with the likes of Lloyd Carr and Riley Hatcher having good performances.

Shaun Maxfield, Rory Hunt and James Blewit have been among those winning the ball in the middle and Rohan Montgomerie has been performing really well as of late and in his 100th senior game this weekend should lift to the occasion again.

Souths will push back to win the contested possessions, Paul White continues to be a leader in defence while Luke Wilkins and Levi McDonald are always reliable to move the ball down the field.

The Eagles continue to be well served up forward by Brodie Drewitt and Ben Shillabeer, and Swayne Ackland is another to look out for following a three-goal performance against Tasman.

Wayback should earn a sizeable win but Souths will make them earn it.

Shanno's Pizza Award

Under 13 Lincoln South midfielder Joseph Kennedy had a day to remember in his side's big win over Tasman on Saturday.

Joseph ran loose and racked up a huge possession count, finishing up his work with five goals.

His ability to link up with teammates and run and carry the ball make him a difficult opponent and a valuable part of his side's classy midfield.
