IT is the final roll of the dice for Bloom Callies this weekend.
Tomorrow they play Glenville Celtic in a crucial Nafa Premier League match at the Errol Heynes field and on Sunday they play the log leaders again, this time in the semifinals of the Mala Moodaley KO Cup competition, on Finnis 1.
"For the last couple of years we have come so close to winning the league title and the knockout cup," Callies coach Elton September said.
"I believe this is our time to finally put our name on one of the trophies, if not both. We have done our homework and are confident."
Callies go into tomorrow's match trailing Glenville by seven points but have a match in hand. While a draw would suit Glenville as it would give them an unassailable eight-point lead, for Callies it is a must-win match. The teams are due to meet in a second-round fixture later this month.
After this weekend's match, Glenville have just the match against Fairview Rovers to complete their season. Callies must still play Helenvale and Wolves.
Blackpool, who can at best fill third spot, play Ebenezer on Gelvan 1. Their remaining fixtures are against Stardrift and Saints.
Park United, who trail Blackpool by three points, face a tough match against Helenvale who are just two points behind them.
United's remaining matches are against Fairview Rovers, Chatty United and West Lake.
At the bottom of the log, Swallows will be relegated even if they beat Stardrift tomorrow and Ramblers in their final fixture.
Saints and Ramblers have everything to play for if they are to avoid joining Swallows in the First Division next year. Saints host Wolves tomorrow. Their remaining fixtures are against Stardrift and Blackpool.
Ramblers have just the match against Swallows left after playing Hotspurs at the Dyke tomorrow. The odds are thus stacked against them.
Stardrift are not completely out of the woods. They still face tough matches against Saints and Blackpool to end their season.
In the second Mala Moodaley KO Cup final on Sunday, West Lake – 10th on the league table – face Park United.
West Lake last appeared in the KO Cup final almost 20 years ago.
