City Oval is looking to end a run of three-straight grand final defeats on Monday.
The Hawks will take on Buninyong in the division one midweek pennant bowls decider after the latter ended Central Wendouree's grip on the title in last week's preliminary final.
The Bears have beaten City Oval in the past three grand finals.
City Oval finished well clear on top of the ladder during the regular rounds and will go into the clash against Buninyong as favourites.
The two sides last met in the semi-final where the Hawks prevailed by 22 shots.
Monday's match - as well as the division three decider between Linton and Buninyong - will be played at Central Wendouree.
