ELLINBANK v NEERIM-NEERIM SOUTH
Where is it being played?: Darnum Rec Reserve
What time is the seniors game scheduled to start?: 2:10pm, Saturday September 7th
Before the beginning of the finals series, Ellinbank had cemented themselves as the team to beat – finishing on top of the ladder with just the two blemishes on their record.
Last week, Longwarry turned that theory on it’s head with a comfortable win over the Eagles to go straight into the Grand Final. The Bankers will now have to take the long road to get there, as they take on the quiet achievers in Neerim-Neerim South. Frank D’Agostino has been in scintillating form recently and has had great support from the likes of Hayden Stagg and Adam Cook. Those players, among others, will be important should Ellinbank wish to find themselves ahead on the scoreboard after the final siren.
The Cats kept a determined Poowong outfit at bay last week – which saw the Magpies unexpectedly get bundled out of the finals race in straight sets – and made the EDFL world stand up and take notice. Coming into this bout Neerim South will have confidence in knowing they upset Ellinbank in Round 15 which saw the Cats snap the Eagles’ ten game winning streak at the time. Calum Shiels, Rhys George and Tim Beaurain have been important in the finals success of NNS so far. Chris Urie has provided the most scoring power so far in the last two weeks by pure numbers, however the Cats have had a wide spread of goal kickers in their post season victories.
