EAGLEHAWK captain Jason Abbott says revenge for last season's grand final loss to Strathdale-Maristians isn't providing any extra motivation for the Hawks ahead of Saturday's one-day match against the Suns.
The Hawks and Suns will lock horns in the Bendigo District Cricket Association grand final rematch at Canterbury Park.
When they last met, the Suns captured their third premiership in a row with a 49-run win over the Hawks in the grand final at the QEO.
"We're not looking at it as any sort of revenge-type match for us," Abbott said on Friday.
"We just want to go about our cricket the way we like to play and hopefully, that's good enough to get a win."
Both the Hawks and Suns began their seasons with victories last week.

The Hawks were far too good for Sandhurst, winning by six wickets, while the Suns fought back from the brink to defeat Bendigo United by two wickets, winning on the second-last ball of the match.
"The boys started off well last week against Sandhurst to get that first win," said Abbott, who helped guide the Hawks over the line with an unbeaten 24.
"There's still a few little things we can work on, but hopefully, we can build on them and put in another good performance."
The standout player for Eaglehawk in last week's win was all-rounder Cory Jacobs.
Jacobs took 2-20 off nine overs with the ball, before later backing it up with 68 batting at No.3.
