Both Warrior squads will attempt to continue their intra-city success (the girls also beat their Lakeland counterparts) on Tuesday when they have their first-ever meeting with the Bulldogs.

The boys will play at River, the girls at Fork.

Lakeland battled with host Norview on Friday evening in a game not finished at press time. The River boys also hit the field at York.
