Major League Dodgeball’s Bundoora League season culminates this evening, with week-two of the Finals Series taking centre stage.
Season four of the Bundoora League has seen some epic match-ups, new and old rivalries lock horns, in addition to some great Dodgeball on display.
Best of luck to all teams this evening, in both Divisions.
Division 1 | Grand Final: Blue Balls vs. The Nutjobs
Minor Premier Blue Balls, lead by captain Mitch Hartshorn, will look to claim their first Bundoora League championship, following their third-place finish last season, and runners-up placing in season two – under the then team-name, GB All Stars.
They have been the front-runners all season, topping the ladder from the beginning of the campaign, to win the league’s minor premiership on 42 competition points – having a superior Points Difference over The Nutjobs, supplanting their rivals on the ladder.
Blue Balls will be up against the defending champions and highly credentialed opposition, The Nutjobs, captained by Daniel Cassidy. The Nutjobs will need to be at their very best, needing to reverse last week’s disappointing result, following their 8 – 6 defeat in the Major Semi-Final.
However, they managed to bounce back later in the night, utilising their double-chance to prevail 10 – 6 over Duncan Hills Coffee, who finished the regular season in third position.
As evidenced by their table positions and head-to-head meetings – this and last season – little separates Blue Balls and The Nutjobs on the court. If either team can rocket off to a flying start, this will go a long way to securing victory, and ultimately the Div 1 league title.
Strap yourselves in for an entertaining Finale. Lights, camera and action!
