The 2012 SAFDA Open and Womens leagues come to a close this Wednesday with the grand-finals.
The first final of the night will be the Div 2 final at 6:30. The Flycatchers remained undefeated during the regular season, and so will come into this game as the favourites. Their opponent, Flinders 1, had a well deserved victory in last week's semi final against Da Frizz. The Flycatchers on the other hand had a rest last week, as they automatically qualified for the final as the 1st placed div 2 team. We will see on Wednesday night whether the week's rest will help or hinder the team in their grand-final clash.
The women's final will be at 7:45 between Envy and the DD's. Envy finished the regular season in 4th place, but managed to overcome the 1st placed Satin Flycatchers with an 8 to 7 victory last week. In the second semi-final Flinders Blue Scream of Death played well early and looked likely to advance to the final, but the DD's managed overcome their opponent and take the win in what was a close fought game.
In the Div 1 final it will be 1st vs 2nd as Fury: Blue Steel come up against the Shining Flycatchers. Blue Steel only dropped one game during the regular season, but that was against their grand-final opponent when the Shining Flycatchers beat them 13 to 7 on the 6th of June. Earlier in the season, on the 28th of March, Blue Steel secured an 11 to 10 victory over the Shining Flycatchers. All signs indicate that this will be a close and entertaining game for the spectators.
Even if you don't have a game come out and watch/support/heckle the top teams from this as they league battle it out. It will be cold, but forecasts are saying it will at least be dry, so harden up and come watch. Presentations will follow the Div 1 final, so who knows, you may have a spirit or MVP prize waiting for you.
