SEASON ON THE LINE ON SATURDAY
WITH three rounds remaining the final four is fast taking shape in VAFA Division 1.
On Saturday Prahran Assumption takes on PEGS at the Penleigh and Essendon Grammar Playing Fields, Keilor Park, the most daunting road trip in the competition.
The venue could well be named Windy Hill as in the old Essendon VFL ground as it’s a safe bet there will be a stiff if not howling breeze blowing.
Yet the Two Blues should enter the contest with a degree of confidence after their round eight clash.
As if Two Blues players and supporters need reminding this was the match they led at the final siren only to be defeated with a PEGS goal after the siren courtesy of a free kick.
PEGS is firmly ensconced atop the Division 1 ladder while the Two Blues are equal fourth, but fifth on percentage.
Not even the 12 per cent boost from last week’s win over St Mary’s, boosted by nine goals from Matthew Clifford (pictured) and eight from Tony Mirabella, could bridge the percentage chasm between fourth placed Old Camberwell and Prahran Assumption.
For the Two Blues the equation is simple, keep winning and pray for a hiccup from Old Camberwell.
Last Saturday proved the first occasion this season that the Two Blues posted a clean sweep of wins with the Reserves and Thirds also recording comfortable wins.
