IN a rematch of last season’s preliminary final, Yarrawonga Mulwala will be out to exact revenge on eventual 2016-17 premiers Beechworth in a gladiator-like white-ball battle tomorrow.

The Lakers were defeated by the Wanderers by just two wickets as Yarrawonga Mulwala managed just 111 runs before being bowled out in the 71st over.

Beechworth managed to chase the runs down inside 51 overs, for the loss of eight wickets.

Yarrawonga’s assault on the WDCA competition this season has been well documented and stems from the post preliminary final interview with Lakers co-captain Reid Clarke who said that the Lakers will work on their batting.
