Orange District Junior Cricket Association looks to claim a pair of trophies on Sunday as both the under 12s and under 14s will play in representative grand finals.
It's been a cracking campaign for each of the outfits as Dan Brincat has led the 12s to an undefeated campaign, a run that's earned the side home field advantage for their looming clash against Dubbo.
Brincat can't help but admit how surprised he's been at the six-from-six season, praising the relatively inexperienced side for their efforts.
"I think the most impressive thing is that 12 of the boys have never played rep cricket before," Brincat said.
"That makes the achievement a little bit harder. You'd never go into a season expecting to win all six games."
But that's exactly what the side has achieved as its beaten Mudgee, Bathurst and Dubbo two times each.
You've got to be well-rounded to work through a campaign undefeated and Brincat says he's been thrilled with all areas of play thus far.
"They certainly exceeded expectations," he said.
"We have been the dominant side." The game-plan ahead of the grand final is already set as the coach knows that to look for in their opponents.
"They have a couple of really good opening bowlers and a good, young leg spinner," he said.
It hasn't been as dominant a campaign for Stu Middleton's under 14s but a 4-2 record is more than enough to see them qualify for a final, although they won't have home-field advantage.
The 14s will set sail for Bathurst where they'll play a side they recently defeated.
"They're hosting the grand final so I think there's a bit more pressure on them," Middleton said.
"I want them to go out there and have some fun.
I think they'll definitely have that win over Bathurst in the back of their mind Both sides will get underway at 10am, the 12s at Wade Park and the 14s at Morse Park.
