KING Valley and Tarrawingee will finish the Ovens and King reserves season positioned first and second respectively, earning them a first round bye and double chance come finals time.
While there are still three rounds remaining, the Roos and Bulldogs are now far enough ahead of the chasing pack that they will not be caught.
Milawa’s surprise loss to Glenrowan on the weekend effectively killed off the Demons’ hopes for finishing second.
The match was tight from start to finish, culminating in a nail-biting final stanza that saw the Kelly Tigers emerge triumphant by just three points.
Glenrowan began the last quarter with a nine-point buffer, which was a considerable margin given the fact only five goals had been scored between the two sides up to that point, with the swamp-like conditions taking their toll.
But the floodgates opened in the final term, with both sides adding three goals.
