After West Wyalong ended the Demons' perfect season on Saturday night, the race to determine who will host the MIA League final is back on.
The venue-race has remained tightly contested between West Wyalong and Griffith all season, but the absence of key players in round five made for a swift end to the Demons' unbeaten form, and the revival of a possible final in West Wyalong.
Maintaining a perfect MIA League record was never top priority for Griffith coach Arch Cullen, he has simply been searching for a home final all season.
"Over there would be a lot tougher, but if it goes that way it is what it is and we just have to put our best foot forward," Cullen explained.
In order to retain their position as home finalists, Griffith need Leeton to keep a close margin against West Wyalong, while the Demons simultaneously best Narrandera convincingly.
"Sometimes if you go somewhere with the mentality of needing to win by a certain margin, it can bite you in the backside," Cullen said.
"Our aim is to do what we need to do, but not take them lightly."
Last time Griffith met Narrandera, they outclassed them 98 to 62 in round three.
The impressive victory came courtesy of an elite Steve McCanna and Isaac Testoni performance, who contributed 27 and 24 points respectively.
The opposite round three fixture saw West Wyalong defeat Leeton 80 to 72.
Arch Cullen and his boys in blue will be hoping to see a similar scoreline repeated this weekend, or an unexpected Leeton victory.
With the date for the MIA League final being moved from November 16 to 23, both West Wyalong and Griffith will be gifted a week of recovery before the big dance.
"The rest won't hurt us, we actually had a few missing that weekend so it suits us," Arch Cullen explained.
Griffith and West Wyalong have met twice during the course of this season, with both sides seeing a win and a loss in those matches.
Round two saw an 84 to 78 Demons victory, while round five saw a 64 to 55 loss.
When the sides do meet again in the MIA League final, Arch Cullen remains confident that his side will come out on top.
