City Oval has broken the dreams of Buninyong and won through to another division one midweek pennant bowls grand final.
The Hawks set up a rematch against Central Wendouree – which they lost to last week – with a five-shot win on Monday.
City Oval claimed two of the three rinks in the encounter at Sebastopol to prevail 67-62.
Central Wendouree will be chasing a third-straight premiership when the two teams meet next week.
It will be the fourth time in succession the rivals have battled out the division one grand final.
