Tennis and Cricket finals commence tomorrow
|Several local teams will be in action tomorrow when the local tennis and senior cricket finals commence.
The Dimboola and District Tennis Association finals will commence on Saturday afternoon.
The reigning premiers, Antwerp, will continue their quest for back-to-back titles when they host Warrack Gold at the Dimboola Health and Fitness Centre Courts, and Jeparit will be playing in their first finals series since the Dimboola and Warracknabeal competitions combined a number ago when they travel to Hopetoun to take on the local club that finished on the top of the ladder.
The Horsham Cricket Association senior semi-finals will also be played on Saturday afternoon, with Hindmarsh district teams featuring in all three grades.
The Blackheath-Dimboola Bulls will feature in a B grade semi-final against Colts on the turf wicket at Dudley Cornell Park in Horsham.
Colts have won both their encounters so far this season, but the Bulls are coming into the finals off a good win in the last round, while Colts suffered a loss last weekend.
Above - Two players who will have a significant influence on their respective team’s fortunes this weekend; Emily Polack with the Antwerp Tennis Club and Brodie Cramer for the Blackheath-Dimboola Bulls B grade cricket team.
The A grade West Wimmera Warriors will only have to travel to Dimboola, where they will play Homers and will aim to repeat their solid six-wicket win over the same opponent last week.
In the C grade, the Warriors, who finished the home and away seaosn on the top of the ladder, will be fresh after the bye last week and will play Laharum on the Dimboola Road oval in Horsham.
Clubs will be nervously watching the weather as there is some rain forecast, with both Warriors teams having finished higher on the ladder than their opponents, would have the advantage in the event of a wash-out, but the Bulls will need a win to advance to the grand final.
