Seven clubs left in race for Cup glory

SEVEN clubs have their eye on the silverware in Sunday's grand finals of the Bendigo Amateur Soccer League's Knockout Cup.

Four play-offs will be at Spring Gully Soccer Club's headquarters in Stanley Avenue.

The action kicks off at 10am when Strathdale tackles Swan Hill in the youth final on pitch two.

It's been a remarkable run by the Swans, who did not field a youth team last season.

A red-hot Spring Gully has home-pitch advantage for the women's match against Epsom.

The Reds and Scorpions will play on pitch one from 11am.

Spring Gully scored a 9-0 victory in the semi-final clash with Eaglehawk.

The division two men's match between Colts United and Spring Gully is on pitch one from 1pm.

After being on the lower rungs of the division one championship ladder in 2013, Golden City has started this year in great form.

A young Golden City line-up will take on Eaglehawk in the men's division one decider from 3pm on pitch one.

Goodwill Basha struck two goals in City's semi-final victory and will be a threat to the Hawks defence.

Meanwhile, FC Bendigo is back on the road for Sunday's battle with St Albans Saints in the National Premier League Victoria division one match at Churchill Reserve.

Bendigo and the Saints will play from 3pm on the St Albans pitch.

The FC Bendigo team scored its first championship points when it drew 2-2 with Moreland Zebras in last Saturday night's match at the Tom Flood Sports Centre.

A strike by Amarah Kromah in the first half and then a header by captain Trent Waterson in the 59th minute put Bendigo well in control of its first match for points on home turf.

The Zebras struck back brilliantly and scored twice in the last 11 minutes of what was a dramatic match.

Bendigo's playing coach Steve Martin will again look for the squad to keep its cool when under pressure for longer.

The day's play at St Albans begins at 1pm when Bendigo and the Saints contest the under-20 match.
