The Upper Great Southern Cricket Association has brought its finals forward, with the A-grade grand final to be played on Sunday. The association made the decision to bring the finals forward and scrap a preliminary final because of the evolving COVID-19 situation and rise in cases around WA. The A-grade will hold semifinals on Saturday, with top-ranked team Lake Grace hosting fourth-placed Wandering. Cuballing finished second on the ladder and will host Pingelly-Noonebin in the other semifinal. The winners of the two semifinals will clash in the grand final the following day at the venue of the highest-ranked team. The B-grade finals will start on Saturday as well, with first-placed Wagin facing fourth-placed Wickepin, while Dumbleyung (second) and Boddington (third) will do battle in the other semifinal. The four B-grade teams could not agree on playing their grand final on Sunday and it will instead be on Saturday, March 12 between the semifinal winners. UGSCA president David Parsons said there was a push to get the season completed before there were any more complications. “With the changing times, we felt if we could just get the season done as quick as we could, then we would,” Parsons said. “In terms of logistics and organisation it was a mission. “The A-grade all agreed to play a different format and get it done this weekend. We have lost the preliminary final and to do that we had to change semi structure. “The B-grade all couldn’t agree, so their grand final will be played on Saturday, March 12. “We are happy with the decision, from here on it is out of our hands. “We can’t have been any more proactive, apart from changing the regular season but we agreed that we wanted to get a fair and level top four so we avoided that.” Parsons was confident they would get their season completed and crown premiership teams and said they would follow any State Government crowd guidelines. The State Government announced on Monday in the latest public health measures, effective from Thursday, community sport outdoors would have no spectators except parents and guardians.
