NOTE: The winner of the
Division One second semi
final, either Balaklava or Port
Wakefield, will host the pre-
liminary finals on March 23.
The first semi final will fea-
ture Owen playing Wasleys
once again, having played
them only last weekend.
During the season, Owen’s
record is 2-1 against Wasleys.
It won the first match 75(11)–
60(1), narrowly lost the sec-
ond 68(8)-64(4), but won last
Owen’s season form is
10-8 compared with Wasleys’
7-11 and Wasleys has cur-
rently lost its last five matches
in a row.
Unless Wasleys is able to
replicate its mid season win-
ning form, it is difficult to go
past Owen proceeding into the
following week’s preliminary
final against the loser of the
second semi final.
The best two sides in
the Division One competi-
tion, Balaklava and Port
Wakefield, will feature in the
second semi final.
Balaklava has the better
season form with a 14-4
record as against Port Wake-
field’s 12-6. However, two
of Balaklava’s four losses
were at the hands of their
Port Wakefield won the
first two matches against
Balaklava 76(10)-63(2) and
86(11)-61(1) but lost their
recent match 81(11)-55(1).
Both sides are evenly
poised and this match is likely
to go down to the wire.
However, given their
recent win against Port
Wakefield, Balaklava will
enter this match as the fa-
voured side to move directly
into the grand final.
Mallala Black and Mallala
White will contest the Divi-
sion Two first semi final.
The sides have played
each other twice during the
season with the honours being
shared. Mallala Black won
the first 84(10)-67(2) with
Mallala White winning the
Mallala Black’s season
shows a 12-8 record com-
pared with Mallala White’s
111⁄2-81⁄2 suggesting that little
should separate the two sides.
Since January, both sides’
form has been almost identi-
cal, each with a 6-3 record,
with Mallala Black amassing
71 points +77 shots as against
Mallala White’s 68 points
Taking all information into
account, Mallala Black may
have the slightest of edges in
this match against sister side
Port Wakefield Blue and
Balaklava Blue meet in the
second semi final to determine
which side will move directly
into the grand final.
Season form clearly is in
Port Wakefield Blue’s favour
with an impressive 181⁄2-
11⁄2 record compared with

favourites to proceed into
the grand final at Balaklava

However, since January,
Riverton Black’s record was

Based on the results of
their recent match, Riverton
Black is favoured to win this
match but it will be wary of a
side that has worked its way
up the standings during the
latter half of the season.
Port Wakefield Gold faces
Owen in the Division Three

With a 10-9 season, Port
Wakefield Gold has had the
better record with Owen hav-
ing had a 8-11 season.
