The Calder Cannons Under 18 girls will play in a do-or-die preliminary final against the Geelong Falcons this Saturday, May 18 at Shepley Oval, Dandenong in a preliminary final.
The match will be played at 2:15pm, directly after the Northern Knights and Eastern Ranges also do battle.
The winners of both matches will face each other in the 2019 grand final at IKON Park on May 25.
It is the first time in the competition’s three-year history that preliminary finals will be played involving the top four teams.
All games will be live video streamed via the NAB League app.
Geelong bodes as a tough match-up for the Cannons after losing just one match this season.
But a brave showing by Calder in the side’s gallant Round 7 loss against the Falcons means the spot in the big dance is well and truly up for grabs.
The Cannons were inaugural girls premiers in 2017 and leap-frogged their way to third spot on the ladder on the weekend with a win over the Gippsland Power.
