Bull­dogs the big­gest threat for Bombers

Campaspe News - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

LEITCHVILLE-GUN­BOWER will now have the week off to pre­pare for a shot at back-to-back flags.

But they will have to sit back and wait for their op­po­nent to come for­ward.

North Bendigo earned the dou­ble chance by fin­ish­ing in top spot, and have as a re­sult gone through to the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal.

Await­ing them is Col­binab­bin, who knocked off Huntly in Sun­day’s first semi-fi­nal by 39-points.

De­spite the strong win, we are go­ing to give the edge to North Bendigo to set up another show­down be­tween the Bombers and the Bull­dogs.

North Bendigo have been a qual­ity side all sea­son long, and it wouldn’t be right to not see these two throw down in a grand fi­nal one more time.
