You can always throw out the form book when Avenel play Nagambie, and the Lakers proved that once again with a thrilling 52-50 A-grade netball win on Saturday.

The win means fourth-placed Avenel still hasn’t beaten its arch-rival since 2007, though it could get another chance in two weeks’ time.

Barring upsets, the sides will meet again in the first week of finals, because Avenel is confirmed in fourth and should second-placed Lancaster take care of Merrigum, the Lakers should leapfrog the Bulldogs and end up fifth.

On Saturday the big crowd was treated to almost a mirror image of the sides’ clash earlier in the year. After a goal-for-goal first half, Nagambie burst to what appeared to be a winning break of six goals when it won the third quarter 17-10.
