Round 11 of the WDFNL is here and it promises to be one of the most hotly contested yet.

Round 11 of the Warrnambool and District league is here and it promises to be one of the most hotly-contested yet.

In the senior football, there are a number of games which cold go down to the wire and have huge ramifications for the end of the season.

Only one win separates third-placed Russells Creek and fourth-placed Merrivale, so a lot will be on the line when the two sides go head-to-head.

The Creekers will like their chances after a narrow triumph in the teams’ round one meeting however Josh Sobey’s Tigers will see it as the perfect opportunity to bounce back after last round’s loss to Nirranda.

Old Collegians (eighth) and Timboon Demons (ninth) meet in another exciting fixture that pits two similarly-ranked teams against each other.

The victor will walk away with its third win for the season which would be a confidence-booster for either side.

In the A-grade netball, Kolora-Noorat hosts Allansford in a top-four game which could go either way.

Both teams recorded comfortable wins on Saturday and will have their sights set on a top-three finish later in the year.

Fresh from another four points, the Warriors (seventh) can take a massive stride forward in their development if they can defeat the Demons (sixth).

The Demons suffered a heavy loss to Allansford but are a proud team though with plenty of big-game experience.

In the other fixtures, Dennington plays South Rovers while Nirranda faces Panmure.
