Round 9 this week and it will be a pivotal round for some teams as they look to stay in the finals race.

Border Districts hosts Bordertown in a fourth versus fifth matchup.

The Roosters have been playing some great football lately and will start favourites in this contest.

The Eagles really crumbled after quarter time against Kybybolite and will be hoping the same thing does not happen two games in a row.

The Roosters look a bit too strong for the Eagles on paper and will be favourites.

Keith hosts Kybybolite in the game of the round.

This contest sees two teams in great form.

Coaches Lewis Hender for Keith and Jack Kelly for Kybybolite would be fired up to have their respective teams ready to go on Saturday and put on a show for the big crowd expected.

The Crows at home might be slight favourites although Kybybolite have won nearly every task put in front of them so far.

Lucindale will look to get their season back on track against Penola on Saturday.

The Roos had a costly slip-up against Padthaway in their quest to make the finals this year and need a bounce-back performance of four quarters of solid football.

The Eagles have been competitive most weeks and would be expected to take it up to Lucindale on Saturday.

The Roos should have enough to get the job done.

Mundulla plays Padthaway and the Tigers will be confident of keeping their form going against the Lions.

The Tigers got Jake McGrice back last weekend and he had a big game against the Demons in front of goals.

Padthaway will have lots of confidence after their win last weekend.

The Lions are only a win outside the top five and will need to be at their best to topple the Mundulla Tigers.

Mundulla should get across the line in a professional performance.

Kingston is at home to Naracoorte and these two teams are at the bottom of the ladder.

The Demons continue to get games into their players and build for the future.

The Saints are starting to get a few players back after an injury-riddled start to the season.

Kingston looks to be the safer bet in this game as they still have a lot of classy players in the line up.

The Saints at home should bring up their second victory for the season.
