Broomehill cruised into the Great Southern Cricket Association grand final after heavy rained washed out the first day of finals.

Both semifinals, between the top four sides, were set to be played on Saturday but heavy rain fell in the region that morning, forcing the games to be abandoned.

Broomehill, who only lost one game during the regular season and finished on top of the ladder, progressed to the decider as the highest ranked team in the second semifinal against Tambellup.

Puddles of water surrounded the outskirts of the ground at the Broomehill Recreational Complex on Saturday, ending any hope of play beginning.

Down in Kendenup, the elimination first semifinal between Kendenup and Wanderers was also abandoned due to rain.

Kendenup finished in third place and progressed to Sunday’s preliminary final while the washout ended the season for Wanderers, who won three games in the qualifying season.

Broomehill will host the GSCA grand final this Saturday at the Broomehill Recreational Complex starting at noon.

They will enter the match as favourites but their only blemish this season came at the hands of Tambellup in round 14.

Tambellup got home in the preliminary final to book a fourth consecutive grand final appearance, where they will chase a rare hat-trick of premierships.
