The most anticipated home-and-away clash of the Horsham District netball league season will take place on Saturday.
Scheduled to play each other just once this season, the grand final rematch between Natimuk United and Laharum will be the only chance for the two sides to sound each other out before finals.
For Natimuk United's Alysha Liston, the contest might hold a little extra significance.
Liston played her junior netball at Laharum and a senior season at the club in 2016. She said coming up against her former side was always slightly different to a regular match.
"It's always good, probably a bit more nerve-wracking playing against your old teammates - I still get along with a lot of the girls out there," Liston said.
"It probably makes me play a little bit harder to be honest. The nerves kick in and you go out there and try really hard."
As the two premier sides in the Horsham District league, the two clubs have developed something of a rivalry across the last several years.
With both sides undefeated so far this season, Liston said the Ewes were expecting their toughest challenge yet on Saturday.
"It's probably going to be quite a tough match - we know they are a really good side," she said.
"I'm not really sure what to expect. We'll just have to wait and see on the day."

Unfortunately a forecast of heavy rain for Saturday threatens to make conditions difficult for both sides.
"It looks set to be shocking weather which is a bit of a worry," Liston said.
"It's probably going to be a physical game in tough conditions.
"I just want to say good luck to the opposition and hopefully it's a good game of netball.
"It would be good if we won, but if we don't that's alright."
Liston said netball had taken on a new role in her life across the past two seasons.
She returned to the club last year after having her second child, and said her teammates and the club had been fantastic in offering their support.
"Netball has now probably become a bit more of an outlet for me. I'm just trying to find a balance between work, family and netball - it can get a bit tough," she said.
"But all the other Mums in the team are really supportive, and give me a lot of pointers. I'm the youngest Mum there so they have really helped me out.
"I was actually a bit nervous coming back to the team after having my second child - they had just won a premiership and I thought I might not fit in as well.
"But somehow it seems to happen, and it's like you never left."
