City secures finals spot, Warrion and Irrewarra remain in hunt

City United will play cricket finals in 2018-19, while Warrion and Irrewarra’s flag hopes have come down to the final round.

City United secured their spot in finals with back-to-back wins on the weekend.

The Panthers are hanging on to fourth spot, despite back-to-back losses to City and Colac West on the weekend.

But the club has the final-round bye and relies on Colac defeating fifth-placed Irrewarra this Saturday.

The Redbacks, which lost to Birregurra on Saturday, kept their season alive yesterday with a win against Apollo Bay and should leapfrog the Panthers if they defeat Colac.

Meanwhile, the Knights leapt from fifth on the ladder to third after two huge wins during a double-header weekend of Division One cricket.

City backed up an impressive performance against Warrion on Saturday with a huge win against Colac yesterday at Eastern Reserve.

The Knights posted 9-289 batting first thanks to 91 from skipper Dylan Slater and a quick-fire 55 from Kane Leersen.

Shane Currie then led the onslaught with the ball, picking up 6-27 to dismantle Colac for 68.

Alvie also has a mathematical shot at snatching top spot from Stoneyford after backing up Saturday’s big win against Apollo Bay with another solid performance against Birregurra yesterday.
