Inverleigh (1st) vs. Corio (12th)

Inverleigh Reserve

Saturday, August 19, 2:10pm

LOCAL football will farewell Corio great Barry O’Toole following Saturday’s clash with Inverleigh. The 38-year-old will call time after 303 senior games (279 – Corio, 14 – East Geelong, 10 – Inverleigh) when the final siren sounds. For the Hawks, coach Mark McDowell will just be happy to get through the contest unscathed. After clinching its first minor premiership since coming out of recess in 2002, Inverleigh will have a week off after the clash with the Devils to prepare for either Bannockburn or Bell Post Hill in a second semi-final. Century goal kicker Jak Kennedy Hunt, Blake Hutchinson, Michael Best and Jake Templeton are among the inclusions to the Hawks squad, while Dean Muir and Nathan Mayes will be missing.

Last time they met: Round 7, 2017: Inverleigh 36.11 (227) def. Corio 9.8 (62) @ VIVA Energy Oval

Prediction: Inverleigh by 94 points
