Finals races has never been closer

Finals races has never been closer

After two days of intriguing round 13 Bairnsdale Cricket Association (BCA) "A" grade action, finals spots are still up for grabs, the last round needed to determine who chases ultimate glory.
This round saw the "A" grade play on Saturday and Sunday, which certainly saw the matches contested on a level playing field and ensured exciting cricket in all four top grade fixtures.
There were two exciting centuries, and two extraordinary efforts with the balls, two of which got their respective sides home and two that didn't.
The live ladder fluctuated continually on Sunday with the weekend's biggest loser, Meerlieu, looking likely to finish the weekend as the top seed, only to be beaten by the narrowest margin and drop out of the top four totally.
The Tussocks would love those six points back that they were pinged for late payment of its affiliation fees.
Current top position holder Lindenow South Glenaladale would have found themselves fifth if they had fallen to West Bairnsdale.
