THE battle is on in Menzies Shield for fourth place on the ladder and a spot in the finals.
Toorak-Prahran, Mt Waverley Uniting and Cavaliers all appear safe in their positions in the top three places but the last place in the top quartet is up for grabs. It appears to be a three-way fight between Glen Waverley, St Paul's Glen Waverley and Chadstone Harlequin.
Glen Waverley still occupies fourth position despite suffering an outright loss to table leaders Toorak-Prahran. The Glen holds a six-point lead over St Paul's Glen Waverley, which seems to have adapted well to the rigors of play in top grade after being promoted from Mackay Shield.
Chadstone Harlequin chased down a huge total to claim first innings points over Notting Hill Brandon Park. Matt Goodier top scored for the winners, making 110.
