THE scene is set for this weekend's final cricket game of the 2018-19 season and there's plenty left in the story to tell.
Yanco Cricket Club and the Leeton Soldiers Club will face off in the two-day grand final throughout this weekend in a bid to be crowned champions.
At this stage, there is a chance of rain on both days, but most particularly for Sunday, which could throw a spanner in the works.
Both teams are hopeful the weather won't have an impact, but if it does, the clubs will want a clear plan in place as to what will happen.
Last year's two-day grand final was hampered by rain on the second day, but eventually after several meetings and independent decisions, Yanco were crowned the victors.
The club hopes there won't be a repeat of that this weekend and is praying the rain stays away.
Yanco has been the form side of the competition all season, having already picked up the one-day and Twenty20 titles.
"Obviously we want to get that third one, but there's a lot of work to do between now and then," Yanco captain Grant Forrest said.
"This is the one you want to win and it's basically been our focus since the start of the season.
"Regardless of the result, it has been a good season for us. We've been able to bring up some talented juniors and give them a good taste of senior cricket."
The Colts were the runners-up to Yanco's Twenty20 victory and team captain Nathan Carn is hopeful the result is reversed this weekend.
The Colts will be taking in a similar side to last weekend when they defeated Narrandera to book a spot in the preliminary final.
The Stags are expected to make one or two changes to their team following their week off.
"I think we're looking pretty good," Carn said.
"We had a good win last weekend. Yanco obviously have a very handy side, so it's just going to require a big effort from everyone.
"If everyone can play their part and be patient, we should be okay."
Both captains agreed it was crucial for their side's not to get too ahead of themselves, rather take it ball-by-ball and session-by-session.
The first day of play gets underway on Saturday at Mark Taylor Oval from 1pm.
