Seniors 2nd Semi Final Casey Scorpions vs Northern Bullants at TEAC Oval 2:10pm(ABC1TV)
Games in 2010: Rd 6 at Casey Fields, Casey Scorpions 20-12(132) def Northern Bullants 12-12(84). Rd 17 at Visy Park, Casey Scorpions 11-13(79) def Northern Bullants 9-12(66).
The Bullants had a good win over the Pies in their elimination final while Casey were well beaten by the Roosters after quarter time in their qualifying final on the weekend. Casey won both meetings against the Bullants this season. I except this to be tight maybe Casey narrowly to progress to an preliminary final against Williamstown next week.

1st Quarter: Casey 7-10-2 Nth Bullants 12-6-1

Reserves 2nd Preliminary Final Box Hill Hawks vs Werribee at TEAC Oval 11am
Games in 2010: Rd 1 at Box Hill, Box Hill Hawks 16-9(105) def Werribee 15-12(102). Rd 17 at Werribee, Box Hill Hawks 14-10(94) def Werribee 11-12(78).
Werribee got the prelim final after surviving a big scare against Coburg on the weekend. Box Hill will be fresh from a week off. This should be a classic between 2 evenly matched sides with a lot at stake. Box Hill did win both meetings between the two clubs this season. Werribee can cause an upset here and win narrowly and advance to the grand final.
Total Qtrs Won: Box Hill 52-18-2 Werribee 48-26-2
1st Quarter: Box Hill 14-4 Werribee 10-7-2
2nd Quarter: Box Hill 12-6 Werribee 12-7

My Tip: Werribee by 1pt
Seniors 1st Semi Final Port Melbourne vs Box Hill Hawks at TEAC Oval 2:10pm(ABC1TV,3WBC,VFL Radio)
Game in 2010: Rd 6 at Box Hill, Port Melbourne 17-9(111) def Box Hill Hawks 16-12(108).
Port Melbourne were beaten comfortably by Williamstown in their qualifying final while the Hawks had a comfortable win over Bendigo in their elimination final.
Port won their only meeting this season by 3pts. Who could forget 12 months ago when these 2 sides put on one of the great finals matches seen in the VFL in their semi final match which Port also won narrowly. If it is anything as good as last year we will be in for one fantastic afternoon of footy on Sunday at TEAC Oval. If I have to stick my neck maybe Port to win because they are at home to win and advance to a prelim final against the Roosters.
Total Qtrs Won: Port Melb 44-31-1 Box Hill 44-32
1st Quarter: Port Melb 9-10 Box Hill 13-6
2nd Quarter: Port Melb 11-7-1 Box Hill 9-10

My Tip: Port Melbourne by 2pts
