Geelong Amateur, Queenscliff and Anglesea will be fighting it out for the fifth and final spot on the Bellarine Football League ladder tomorrow.

Ammos hold fifth spot, half a game ahead of Queenscliff and Anglesea.

Obviously Ammos hold the upper hand by already being in the five. They only need to defeat Ocean Grove tomorrow to guarantee an elimination final against Modewarre.

But that’s easier said than done. The Grubbers have been playing well and were superb against Barwon Heads last weekend.

Queenscliff has a hefty percentage break on Anglesea and should Ammos fall to Ocean Grove, it needs to beat top side Torquay to make it, which seems highly unlikely.

Anglesea could be the surprise packet.

If Grove beats Ammos and Torquay knocks off Queenscliff as expected, the Seas will make the finals if they beat Newcomb, a game in which they will start as favourites.

The top four is locked away.

Torquay will claim the minor premiership if it beats Queenscliff as expected.

If the Coutas spring the upset of the season, Drysdale is poised to pounce, but faces a tough game against fourth placed Modda.

Barwon Heads will finish third and face the winless Portarlington and may choose to rest some senior players this week.
