With Lithgow Panthers running rampant through the opening stages of the women's Premier League Hockey season and, for the most part, CYMS doing the same, Saturday's top-of-the-table clash has been billed as a potential grand final preview.
The Panthers are undefeated on top of the table while CYMS are just two points adrift having suffered a lone loss, while the two sides are also sitting one-two respectively in terms of their attacking and defensive numbers.
CYMS come into the game from a 3-1 win over Lithgow Zig Zag while Panthers drew with long-time rivals Bathurst City last start, the green and golds' win a return to form after dropping their previous clash to Bathurst Souths.
The fact CYMS will hold a home a ground advantage this weekend looks to be a crucial factor, although the Lithgow side don't traditionally suffer much lag on the road.
The green and golds thrashed reigning champions Bathurst St Pat's on home turf earlier this year and sent their rivals an emphatic message, and while Saturday's clash is a bigger test, in turn a victory would send an even bigger message.
The round seven blockbuster begins at 1.55pm on Saturday afternoon, rounding out the afternoon's games at Orange Hockey Centre.
It follows Confederates' clash with Bathurst City, from 12.30pm.
The Orange side actually sit above the traditional heavyweights and will be desperate for victory, a win would help them cling onto their tenuous hold of fourth spot.
Meanwhile Ex-Services will be on the road chasing a win over the cellar-dwelling Zig Zag outfit, who are yet to win a game, while Wanderers will be chasing their first victory of the men's Premier League season against Bathurst St Pat's.
They're on the road too, with those two games beginning at 1.30pm and 1.50pm respectively.
