The Bendigo Amateur Soccer League season is set for a thrilling conclusion after fierce rivals Strathdale and Eaglehawk qualified for the Super Cup final.
The Blues denied Eaglehawk a fourth-straight championship earlier this month in controversial circumstances and the sequel in the Super Cup final is expected to be a fierce battle.
Strathdale advanced to the final on the back of an impressive 2-0 win over Shepparton South at McEwan Reserve in Shepparton on Sunday.
The Blues made a perfect start with Ethan Hunter scoring in the fifth minute of the game.
The Blues doubled their lead early in the second-half when a corner was inadvertently turned into the back of the net by Shepparton South's Jack Wilson.
"Our weakness in recent weeks has been not taking our chances early, so that was good to get an early goal and then we controlled the game after that,'' Strathdale coach Jon Bryers said.
"Shepparton South had a couple of chances to get back into the game, but we made a couple of saves and then we probably should have scored a couple more ourselves."
Eaglehawk had a much tougher time in its clash with Tatura.
The Hawks withstood a serious challenge from Tatura before hanging on for a 3-2 win.
Kieran Forrest produced his best game at division one level, scoring two of the Borough's 3-2 goals.
Nathan Hamblin continued his good form by scoring for the Borough.
The Hawks looked home when they led 3-1 midway through the second half.
Tatura scored with about 10 minutes remaining to set up a tight finish.
"We kicked into a stiff breeze in the first half and did well to lead 2-1 at half-time,'' Eaglehawk skipper Brent Hamblin said.
"Tatura probably beat us in the midfield, but we defended really strongly."
Shepparton United will face Strathdale in the women's Super Cup final.
Shepparton United made it 20 wins from 20 games when it defeated Spring Gully 3-0.
United put the Reds away with three goals in a 10-minute period either side of half-time.
Caitlin Georgiou opened the scoring before Sophie Papalia added a brace.
Strathdale needed a penalty shoot-out to get past Colts United.
Scores were level at 1-1 after 90 minutes and again after extra-time.
Nicole Ford, Emma Heaney, Lucy Teale and Madalyn Tresize stepped up to score penalties for the Blues, while Colts only scored three penalties via Rebecca Berry, Ebony-Jade Jones and Sara Berry.
A penalty shootout was also required in division two where Swan Hill knocked out championship-winners Strathdale 5-4 in the shootout.
Swan Hill plays Shepparton United in the division two final after United defeated Shepparton 2-0 on Sunday.
The top two teams in the youth division - Shepparton South and Golden City - will play in the Super Cup final.
Shepparton South proved too strong for Epsom 5-0, while Golden City defeated Spring Gully 1-0.
