Bulls wait for game re­sults

Tablelands Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE Ma­reeba Bulls will spend the week­end play­ing the wait­ing game as re­sults of matches in the fi­nal round will dic­tate their fate in the pre­mier men’s and re­serve grade com­pe­ti­tions.

While the club’s sec­ond divi­sion Or­ange side have se­cured third spot and a home semi­fi­nal against the Ather­ton Ea­gles, the men’s pre­mier and re­serves need help to en­sure they progress.

The pre­miers need arch-ri­vals the Strat­ford Dol­phins to win against the In­n­is­fail Cut­ters by two goals to sneak into fourth spot via goal dif­fer­en­tial. Mean­while the men’s re­serves re­quire Mar­lin Coast Rangers to lose by no more than 11 goals.

Where they fin­ish in the top four will de­pend on Edge Hill beat­ing the South­side Comets, which is ex­pected, while the Strat­ford Dol­phins host the premier­ship win­ners In­n­is­fail.

De­pend­ing on re­sults, Ma­reeba could fin­ish third or fourth or even be pushed out via goal dif­fer­ence.

The club’s sec­ond divi­sion Or­ange travel down to Edge Hill tonight look­ing to find some form ahead of the semi­fi­nals, while the sec­ond divi­sion Black will travel down to In­n­is­fail in their last game of the sea­son.

The ladies will travel down to James Cook Uni on Satur­day look­ing to go out win­ners when they take on the JCU Strik­ers. The club’s only con­firmed home semi-fi­nal is next Fri­day night against the Ather­ton Ea­gles in the men’s sec­ond divi­sion com­pe­ti­tion.
