THE Emu Valley Cricket Association season will go down to the wire on Saturday as five teams jostle for the four spots in the finals.
West Bendigo, United, Golden Gully, Emu Creek and Marong can all still make the finals, with no berths yet assured.
The finals contenders are all separated by 10.6 points from first to fifth in what has been one of the EVCA's most enthralling seasons.
One of the most intriguing games of the final round is the clash between two of the finals aspirants, United and Marong, at Ewing Park.
The Panthers bowled well to restrict the Tigers to 204, but United hit back with the ball to have Marong 2-23.
Marong is sitting fifth and must win to be any chance of pushing into the top four.
• Having been one of the competition's battlers in recent seasons, Golden Gully has a chance to finish on top of the ladder.
The Cobras are in a strong position against West Bendigo, with a score of 249 to defend at Ken Wust Oval.
• Reigning premier Emu Creek has 251 on the board against Maiden Gully at JG Edwards Oval as it aims to shore up a finals berth.
• Sedgwick will resume at 3-60 in reply to Spring Gully's 126 at Club Court.
• Axe Creek is a chance of causing an upset against Mandurang with 8-257 to defend at Longlea.
