Halls Gap will be hoping to notch up its first win of the season when it hosts Navarre in the final round clash, starting on Saturday.

It has been a long season for the Gappers with the team struggling to compete with the other teams across the competition, but the Grasshoppers have not been much better.

Navarre has just two wins to its name with the game set to be a tough match to pick a winner.

The Gappers bowlers have been respectable but it is the batting that has let them down most weeks, failing to close out an innings in any game without being bowled out.

No doubt it will be a focus for captain Les Pyke going into the match with the team confident they can match Navarre off the back of a positive second innings against Pomonal during the second innings. The match is set for a 1pm start at Halls Gap.
