EUREKA Golden City is in the running to complete a clean sweep of Hockey Ballarat premierships today.
The club dominates grand final line-ups with teams in each of three grades at Prince of Wales Park.
The women’s premier league and under-15s are all-Eureka Golden City games matches.
SOBHC Ducks are the only team standing in the way of three pennants for Eureka.

Under-15: Eureka Golden City Blue v Eureka Golden City Gold, 10am
Women’s premier: Eureka Golden City Blue v Eureka Golden City Gold, 2pm
Men’s premier: Eureka Golden City Blue v SOBHC Ducks (1), 3.45pm
Ducks have been the steady improvers through the men’s final series after finishing third.
They boast competition best and fairest, centre half Al Cardew.
He is expected to be a major figure in attempting to roll Eureka Golden City Blue.
Ben Smith enjoyed a fine year with WestVic in the Hockey Victoria state league and will be hard to contain, while Reece Stewart will be looking to extend his strike rate on penalty corners.
Max Ferrier, Zac Shipham and Nathan Hargreaves pivotal in the midfield for Eureka, while goalkeeper Nathan Burgess will be hard to pass.
In the women’s grand final, EGC Gold and Blue have been the dominant teams.
Blue is chasing back-to-back titles.
