Semi Final 1

KNOX vs SANDRINGHAM
Sunday 5th August – 1:00pm

After finishing the regular season with two losses, the Sabres enter this game low on confidence and struggling to find form.  Knox however have won three straight matches and sealed the Minor Premiership with victory over Kilsyth last weekend.  Simon Grant is having a sensational season for the Raiders this year and is one player the Sabres will need to stop if they are to secure the upset.  Sandringham has a quality back court with Batish, Uzelac and Vahala all capable of high scoring games. Knox has defeated Sandringham in all three matches this season, but they have decreased in the margin in all three attempts.

Semi Final 2

KILSYTH vs DANDENONG
Sunday 5th August – 1:30pm

Kilsyth only lost four games for the season, but two of those losses were against this week’s opponent which is sure to worry coach Rod Popp.  Dandenong has had success at Kilsyth already this year defeating the Cobras at home by 1pt in rd10.  Kilsyth have relied heavily on Smit, Reinbott and MVP candidate Brazier this season, so all three will need to produce a high quality game this week.  Dandenong has a wealth of talent in the team, but will need a strong game from Dukes and Gaze.  Neither team has made the Grand Final in D League competition, but Dandenong has Coach Duncan Berg in charge who took Nunawading to the 2010 title.
