STUDENTS of Ballarat Ducks and EGC are each chasing doubles in Hockey Ballarat senior premierships at Prince of Wales Park today.
They clash in the men’s and women’s grand finals.
Neither of the men’s teams have bragging rights this season, with one win apiece in two meetings.
Ducks have been clinical in their victories during the season, but Gold are peaking at the right time.
“We have good depth at the moment,” Students of Ballarat club president Tim Baumgarten said.
“The guys are playing well as a unit.
“They’re excited about playing together in a grand final and putting on a show.”
Although Ducks have played the more consistently, Gold has unpredictability that might take the game to the wire.
In the women’s grand final, Students of Ballarat Ducks and EGC Blue meet.
Ducks found form in the semi-final by upstaging favourite EGC Gold and will look to capitalise on this momentum. EGC Blue has shown it has the playmakers to score heavily.
“This will be a tough encounter” EGC club president Jeff Sly said.
‘There isn’t too much between the two sides. Each is aggressive, skilful, and play attacking hockey. The contests around goal will be tough,” he said.
PUMAS and EGC Gold clash in the junior grand final.
Sly said each had finished the season strongly.”
“These guys are playing some of the best junior hockey in the region at the moment, so we will no doubt be treated to a skilful and energetic match.”
