PREDICTIONS for round 17 (second last home and away)
Division one: Daylesford v Avenue, will be a good game as both teams are strong, but I believe Avenue will win.
Division two: City Oval v Beaufort, City Oval will win at home.
Division three: Daylesford v Midlands, will be a close match with Daylesford a little stronger.
Division four: City Oval v Buninyong, this will be a hard fought game but Buninyong will prevail.
