City Colts’ ability to earn a home final could hinge on the outcome of its clash against Delatite on Saturday.

Last year’s Wangaratta and District A-grade grand finalists narrowly hold down top spot from Yarrawonga-Mulwala and Rovers United-Bruck, but have some work ahead to maintain it.

Colts made 125 last weekend, before Dylan Adams struck early to leave Delatite 1-5 at the end of play.

“When you’re only defending 120-odd you need early wickets, but we need to be patient though, we can’t go chasing them,” Colts’ captain Kent Braden said. 

Yarrawonga-Mulwala looks destined for a convincing victory against Wangaratta after amassing 8-308 last weekend.

Benalla (1-48) can keep its outside chances of a top-four spot alive if they run down Greta’s 155.

Rovers United-Bruck require a further 107 runs for victory after dismissing Ovens Valley United for 128 and reaching 1-22 at stumps.

Beechworth has the bye.
