Lakers eyeing history

September 21, 2017

Nagambie players walk into Saturday's Kyabram District Football League final as favourites, aiming to win back-to-back premierships.

Nagambie will become one of the greatest teams in Kyabram District Football League history if it can get the job done on Saturday.

The Lakers are gunning for back-to-back premierships, which no-one in the league has done since Stanhope in 2007-08.

Another flag would be a third in four years and they could easily be going for a four in a row after finishing as minor premier in 2015 before bowing out in straight sets.

If they can get it done, it would be a 12th senior premiership for the club.

At Violet Town, a victory in the decider would mark the club’s second flag in the KDFL after only entering the competition in 2006.

The Towners will go into the game as underdogs, despite finishing on top of the ladder during the home-and-away season and defeating the Lakers twice.

But Nagambie’s finals experience came to the fore in the second semi-final, defeating the Lakers by 16 points.

●In the reserves grand final, Tallygaroopna will take on Merrigum for the flag after securing an eight-point win against Stanhope in the preliminary final.

The Redlegs only lost once during the home-and-away season, but Merrigum had the upper hand in the second semi-final and won by 19 points.

It is a carbon copy in the under-18 decider, with Tallygaroopna and Merrigum kicking the day off for the thirds premiership.

The Redlegs won through to the grand final with a 22-point win in Saturday’s preliminary final.
