It’s week one of the AFL Outer East Division 2 finals. Here’s the teams as selected. Will the Kinglake seniors hang on? How will the Lakers seconds go in only their third finals series appearance in history? We will all find out Saturday.
After eighteen rounds we come down to the “White Ribbon” final round of the first AFL Outer East Division 2 season. Whilst Kinglake will make the finals other Murrindindi Shire based teams face a “mathematical equation,” and we’ll know who’s in the final five come Saturday night.
Kinglake’s shock 78 point loss to Powelltown in round 15 was the ‘kick up the bum’ that the Lakers needed according to senior coach Andrew Fairchild, after his side knocked off Yarra Junction by 43 points on Saturday.
Whilst the Lakers got away to a quick lead at the Kingdome, Yarra Junction slowed the scoring rate after half-time in the closest Division 2 game this weekend. Powelltown smashed Yea out of the park at Yea and Yarra Glen easily accounted for Alexandra.

Kinglake got a pair of hammerings last time they came up against Yarra Junction and Seville, but they’ll be hoping it’s a different story on their home patch, a patch they haven’t lost on this year.
