Edgeworth Eagles and Hamilton Olympic will battle it out in the PlayStation 4 NPL Northern NSW 2015 Grand Final at 3pm on Sunday.
Zane’s Young Eagles Seek the Double
Edgeworth Eagles are the first of two sides to contest the Northern New South Wales PS4 National Premier Leagues Grand Final.
In 2015 Edgeworth are looking to become just the second side to win the top flight double in 17 years
Since 1999 the only side who has ‘done the double’, that is finish the season first and win the Grand Final, is Broadmeadow Magic who achieved it three times; in 2013, 2008 and 2005.
Edgeworth’s form this season has been incredible. Two losses in their first three rounds at the hands of Broadmeadow and Hamilton threatened to derail their season however they bounced back with twelve wins from 15 games to finish first.
In total they won 13 games, drew once and lost just four on their way to 40 points and the first placed finish.
Bolch Hoping for ‘Third Time Lucky’ Effect
The second of the two sides in the Northern New South Wales PS4 National Premier Leagues is Hamilton Olympic.
Hamilton spent four rounds in the middle of the season at the top of the table, however Edgeworth finished the season the stronger of the pair, and a last round loss to Maitland saw them fall behind Lambton Jaffas to finish third.
They won ten matches this season, and lost a competition best two. Six draws hit the side in Blue and White extremely hard, as it saw them drop twelve points, which was ultimately their downfall in terms of the Premiership.
They still have a chance of success in 2015 as they look to defeat the high-flying Eagles, something they already achieved in a 2-0 victory back in Round 2 in April.
