Tomorrow’s Picola & District Football Netball League grand final fixture marks the day where dreams are made and broken.
After much squabbling, Yarroweyah is set to showcase itself by hosting the big day with the first whistle to be blown at 9.10am.
Four football and seven netball premiership are up for grabs and six different clubs are out to get them.
Jerilderie and Strathmerton are vying for the senior football flag in a rematch of last year’s final, while the undefeated Strathy A-graders meet Picola league newcomers Tocumwal in the top billing on the courts.
The Brendan East-led Deni Rovers fourths are aiming for a second consecutive flag when they meet Jerilderie first thing in the morning.
Under co-captains Pat Connell, Nick Hay and Blair Sartore, the Roos have barely put a foot wrong all season and will start as raging favourites to bring home the silverware.
The Rovers thirds face an uphill battle against minor premier Strathmerton from 10.40am, with midfield stars Jamie Thorpe and Liam Zeschke to lead the way.
The Bulldogs have lost just once all year, but the way the Roos dismantled Jerilderie last week will have coach John Holschier feeling optimistic.
On the courts, the Rovers will be represented in three grades - C grade, C-Reserve and under-17s.
The U/17s start at 10.55am against Jerilderie, which Deni beat just two weeks ago in the semi-final.
Having taken the long route through the qualifying final, the semis and then the preliminary final, the Rovers C-graders are primed for their big match against Mathoura (12.45pm).
Last time they met Mathoura won 38-32, but in round five it was the Rovers who took the points, 32-28.
Deni’s C-Reserve side finish on top of the ladder before eclipsing Jerilderie by eight goals in the semi-final, and will again meet the Demons tomorrow.
Blighty B grade’s near pefect season culminates in a mouth-watering grand final contest against Mathoura (2pm).
The Timbercutters are the only team minor premier Blighty has failed to beat this year, but Redeyes coach Sarah Wray is keen to turn that around tomorrow.
Just like their B grade club mates, Blighty’s under-15s are aiming to make up for last year’s grand final loss when they face-off against Jerilderie (9.45am).
The Redeyes won by 10 goals when the two met in round 17 and then by 13 goals in the semi-final.
