DROMANA have booked their Grand Final spot with a win over Bonbeach.

The Tigers scored the only goal of a scrappy first term, and ended up going into the half time break with an eight point lead.

Dromana stretched their lead in the third term, and managed to keep the Sharks at an arm’s length.

Bonbeach couldn’t close the gap, and Dromana ended up taking the win 8.7 (55) to 5.6 (36).

Sam Fowler booted three goals for the winning Tigers, while Sam Guerts also had a big impact.

The Tigers go into this weekend’s clash against Sorrento looking to go back to back. They won the second division premiership last year, and are now looking to back it up with a first division win.

Their Sorrento opponents will be looking to make up for their devastating Grand Final defeat from last year. The Sharks were defeated last season by Pines after the Pythons scored a behind after the siren.

The match will be played on Saturday at Skybus Stadium, Frankston starting from 2pm. Mt Eliza and Frankston YCW will play in the Reserves Grand Final from midday.
