Two crucial matches this weekend set the stage for a bumper round four of cricketing action in the Edgewater Saturday premier womens competition.

Neighbours Avana and Turangi will set the Oval alight today with both teams determined to leave everything on the pitch.

Avanas upset win over Matavera last week will see them beaming and looking for another big upset over Turangi.

Lina Taufahema will need to bring her hard hitting batting for the Avana girls, with support from Margaret Simiona.

Turangi are a class act and if their girls fire today, itll be a long day in the office for Avana. Key for Turangi will be their bowling attack of Grace Rea, Daisy Ama and young Margaret Tuaputa.

Look to this game to go down to the wire.

Matavera will be firing after last weeks shock loss, up against an improving and rested Muri side.

The Hot Eyes batting line up was severely tested last week, so look to captain Benedicta Matapo and Apii Tangata to lead from the front.

The Creep girls will have their own game plan of taking out Matavera, with a host of talented players from 1 to 11.

Luciana Matenga should feature with both bat and ball, ably assisted by Punanga Kaveao and up and comer Annabelle Tuaati.

Both teams must win if they are to have any chance of taking out the championship.
