UP TO THE CHALLENGE: Wodonga's Ally Hughson in action against Norths.

Wodonga can close the gap for the minor premiership in division one women’s hockey if it holds off Wombats on Sunday.

The Bulldogs were too strong for Norths in a 3-1 triumph last weekend, while leaders Falcons stumbled with a 1-1 draw against CR United.

Wombats upset Norths in their last start back on July 2, but will again enter the contest as underdogs.

Falcons meet Norths to retain top position, while CR United will look to build on their good form from last week when they take on Magpies.

In the men’s competition, Wodonga clings to top spot by two points after drawing with Norths last weekend and will start favourites against Wombats.

CR United can close the gap to the top two with victory over the out of sorts Magpies, while Falcons can swoop on the teams above if they upstage Norths.

Just nine points separate top to bottom in the league.
