Where is it being played?: Tarwin Lower Rec Reserve
What time is the seniors game scheduled to start?: 2:30pm
The two best teams on the ladder, the Best and Fairest winner up against the league’s top goal kicker, and a rematch of the second semi-final, what’s not to love about this year’s Alberton footy grand final?
Foster vs Stony Creek has provided some entertaining bouts through the year, but none are more important than this penultimate fixture at Tarwin on Saturday.
After defeating the Maroons just two weeks ago to make the grand final, Foster are ready to go this week in an attempt to make up for their 2018 grand final loss.
They have been the obvious favourite for the premiership, dominating in all facets of the game this year.
“We’re a unit, our skills around the ground have been great and our defence has been spoton, which is very pleasing,” coach Brad Rooney said.
“I’m super confident, I’ve got a group that is dedicated and disciplined.”
For Stony Creek, their weapon in 2019 B&F Darcy Atkins, countering Foster’s league-leading goal kicker Tom McGowan, will be the key to their success.
“We’re underdogs and we’ve got nothing to lose,” coach Scott Anderson said. “We’re in some good form now and with Darcy and a few others performing well I’m confident we can do something.” Stony Creek have played themselves into form without a break this finals series, while a break has seen Foster reach full health. With both teams in good form and health, the big game should be one to remember.Daniel Renfrey - The Great Southern Star
