There's never any love lost between Wangaratta and Myrtleford on the soccer field.
Another chapter will be written into the rivalry between the two AWFA powerhouses when they clash in the senior men's cup final for the second time.
The 2015 decider went the way of Wangaratta and the league champions enter the clash as most people's tip, but Myrtleford's recent record can't be denied.
It will be the Savoys' fifth straight cup final since 2015 and the chance to win their fourth in-a-row.

Myrtleford midfielder Jesse Stephens said the feeling has been much the same as the previous four years, but feels they enter this clash as underdogs.
"Having the twos in the grand final as well means there's obviously a lot more people on the track and there's a real buzz around the camp," he said.
"I think most people would have tipped us every other year, but this year most will be tipping Wang.
"I think this year will be maybe a bit more special than one or two of the others if we can win it."
Stephens has been under an injury cloud for most of the season, missing games with hamstring and groin complaints, as well as suffering some ligament damage to his ankle..
But after sitting out the semi-final victory against Cobram last weekend, he's confident he'll be able to return to the starting lineup.
Defender Raul Pahina is still not certain to play, while the experienced Frank Bonacci could return to the fold.
"Even if we can't play, we've still got good quality on the bench as well," Stephens said.
Co-coach Matt Park continues to defy belief after suffering his third ACL tear in pre-season.
Park has managed to get on the pitch late in games and had a huge influence in the dying stages against Cobram.
Stephens expects he'll want to have his say in the big dance.
"I'd say he'll be on the bench with his gear on, and, regardless of how the game is going, he'll want to put himself on for the last 15-20 minutes and hopefully do something similar," he said.
"He's probably got it pictured in his head to come off the bench and score the winner in the last minute and I'm sure he'll love that."
The inclusion of former A-League player Andrew Barisic mid-season has been huge for the Red Devils, but Stephens knows they can't get too caught up focusing on one player.
"It's not like he's their only good player or their only goal-scorer," he said.
"Last time I think we did a pretty good job, he probably had two or three chances and didn't manage to score against us, but he still looked pretty dangerous.
"Nothing changes too much in terms of game plans, we know his strengths and how good he is.
"We've got plenty of other good players to worry about as well."
Barisic is excited about the prospect of playing in his first AWFA cup final.
"You don't get many chances throughout your career, whether it's professional level or semi-pro to be able to play in a cup final or win a league," he said.
"I think all of them are special."
Barisic admitted there will be pressure, but it's nothing he hasn't dealt with before.
"Coming in, I knew that was going to happen, but I've just got to go on with it and do my job and show I can do it in the final as well," he said.
"When I came in, literally the club felt like a family club and they were so welcoming. From the fans to the committee, to the coaches and the players.
"I don't think I felt that at any other club, even playing overseas. It was so easy to come in and gel straight away with everyone."
Barisic didn't confirm whether it would be his final game for Wangaratta.
