A two-week break from competition has district players eager to take to the field ahead of finals.GEORDIE COWAN February 14, 2014 4:26am
District cricketers will have to return from their heat-enforced break with some fire of their own as Goulburn Murray Cricket teams vie for finals berths.
Just four points separate the teams ranked fourth to seventh on the ladder, while undefeated Echuca must win its final round clash against Kyabram Fire Brigade to claim the minor premiership.
The only teams virtually guaranteed to stay in their respective ladder positions are the third-placed Flames and winless Stanhope.
Eighth-placed Rochester United has some hope of snatching a spot in the finals, but needs the unlikely outcome of both ninth-placed Cooma and last-placed Stanhope to defeat sixth and seventh-placed Bamawm-Lockington United and Moama respectively.
By the same token, expected results mean the clash between fourth and fifth-placed Tongala and Echuca South is a ‘must-win’ to play finals.
■ In B grade, Echuca is likely to finish top, while Rochester Tigers and Cooma are likely to hold on to the last spots in the top six, with BLU and Echuca South close behind.
■ With two weeks left in C grade, the battle for top spot is between Echuca and Stanhope, while teams as low as ninth still hold some hope of playing in finals.
■ The D grade finalists are already set, with Stanhope narrowly leading Echuca in the race for first position.
