The finals season continued this week with the preliminary final between minor premiers Scorpions & Stickmen to see who would advance to the Grand Final to meet Explorers.
Scorpions' Captain Dennis Williams made the brave move of leaving Open Winner Barry Delbridge out of the team for this game.
This backfired & Stickmen sensed a weakness to take a 2-0 and 91 point lead into half time.
Stickmen's Richard Hall and Aaron Williams played too consistent for their opponents Dennis Williams & Scott Farquhar to have Scorpions on the back foot.
Scorpions' Rod Netherwood & Eugene Reeves tried hard but their opponents Leigh & Darren Scoble proved too strong getting to the required points where it was impossible for Scorpions to win.
Congratulations to Stickmen who now meet Explorers on Saturday in the Grand Final. As for Scorpions going out in straight sets, it's a mirror job: they need to look deep into it.
Hoping to see a good crowd on Saturday for the final at 1:30pm followed by the presentation.
