How Will Season End? Wide Bay League to Go to Wire

Article excerpt

Byline: Shane Jones

FOOTBALL: The finals race for the Wide Bay Premier League is close with four rounds to go.

Any side from fourth to seventh can still mathematically qualify with the final result for fourth, the last finals spot, not expected to be decided until the final round.

NewsMail sports journalist Shane Jones looks at the crystal ball and predicts the final few rounds.

1. Bingera (36 points)

Run home - Sunbury (H), Doon Villa (A), Bye, The Waves (H) Predicted finish - 1st (43 points)

Bingera is almost a lock for the minor premiership given the position the club is in. The club can seal it before the bye by gaining four points out of the next two games. If not, a result against The Waves should be enough.

2. Doon Villa (31 points)

Run home - Bye, Bingera (H), The Waves (H), UPE (A). Predicted finish - 2nd (38 points)

Doon Villa face perfect finals tests in the final three rounds with a match against potential minor premier Bingera and finals hopeful The Waves. The club will seal second and have two shots at making the grand final in what has been an impressive year for the club.

3. Brothers Aston Villa (24 points)

Run home - KSS (A), Bye, Bargara (H), United Warriors (A). Predicted finish - 3rd (33 points)

Villa will need to rely on Doon Villa losing all three games to finish inside the top two, which is unlikely. The side should seal third this week.

4. Bargara (20 points)

Run home - UPE (A), KSS Jets (H), Brothers (A), Bye. Predicted finish - 4th (26 points)

Finals destiny is in Bargara's hands with two winnable matches and a chance to take points against Brothers Aston Villa. The ideal scenario would be nine points but six could be enough with The Waves run home. The spot could come down to the final round with Bargara relying on the top two sides to do them a favour against The Waves. …
