WHO will join Bendigo East with a double chance in the BBD weekend pennant finals?
That's the No.1 question heading into Saturday's final round of the season.
While the four finalists - Bendigo East, Kangaroo Flat, Eaglehawk and South Bendigo - were locked in with three rounds still to play, the race for the double chance is still being fought right until the end.
The only certainty heading into Saturday is that reigning premier Bendigo East will be one of the teams in next week's qualifying final.
But any of the Flat, Hawks and Diggers can join the Beasties with the safety net of a finals double chance.
The Beasties (168 points) can't be dislodged from top spot, while Kangaroo Flat (158), Eaglehawk (148) and South Bendigo (147) are all separated by just 11 points from second to fourth.
Saturday's round 14 match-ups include Kangaroo Flat hosting Eaglehawk in what should be a cracking finale to the home and away season given the double chance is up for grabs.
Double chance scenarios
Kangaroo Flat (158) - just needs to beat Eaglehawk - which it did earlier in the season by four shots - to be guaranteed of finishing top two for the first time since 2007.
Eaglehawk (148) - a win with four rinks up will secure the double chance. Anything less than an all rinks-up win and the Hawks' double chance fate will then be determined by how many points South Bendigo earns in its home game against Bendigo.
South Bendigo (147) - best case scenario for the Diggers is Eaglehawk beats Kangaroo Flat with a split of two rinks each that would have both teams on 162 points. That then means the Diggers can get to second spot with a win over Bendigo with three rinks up that would take them to 163.
Round 14 - Castlemaine v Bendigo East, Kangaroo Flat v Eaglehawk, Inglewood v Golden Square, South Bendigo v Bendigo.
