BAIRNSDALE WEATHER FORECAST:
PRELIMINARY FINAL MATCH PREVIEW – LAKES ENTRANCE V WY YUNG
Lakes Entrance take on Wy Yung this Saturday at Bairnsdale.
Lakes Entrance finished second on the ladder by percentage, but their loss against the ladder leaders Stratford last week showed there may still be a class gap between the two sides at the business end of the season. Whichever side wins through to the big dance this weekend will hope to get through unscathed.
Wy Yung will come into this game fresh with a week off after their semi final win over last year’s premiers Lindenow, but could potentially lack momentum coming into this game due to the break. No doubt coach Shaun Mooney will have his troops ready and raring to go.
The winner will advance to next week’s Grand Final against Stratford, while the side without the winning score at the final siren will find themselves planning Mad Monday celebrations earlier than they hoped.
Lakes Entrance’s form had been steady and reliable prior to last week’s loss. The Seagulls have only lost two of their last ten games, with their most recent defeat before their semi final loss coming in Round 16 against Wy Yung by 10 points.
Wy Yung’s form has been patchy recently. The Tigers won five games in a row from Round 9-13, but have only managed three wins since then, including their semi final win two weeks ago.
The Tigers lead 2-1 on the wins ledger in their three encounters with the Seagulls this year, with their most recent clash in Round 16 clash being a 10-point margin in favour of Wy Yung. Their other encounters in Rounds 2 & 9 have resulted in margins of two points and three points respectively, which suggests we may be in for a tight contest on Saturday.
HEAD-TO-HEAD FOR 2018:
Round 2: Wy Yung 7.12.54 lost to Lakes Entrance 8.8.56
Round 9: Lakes Entrance 7.6.48 lost to Wy Yung 7.9.51
Round 16: Wy Yung 9.4.58 defeated Lakes Entrance 6.12.48
FORM FROM LAST FIVE GAMES (Round 15-finals):
