The Waves prepare to repeat last year's form

FOOTBALL: Here we go again.

It might be a new year for The Waves but the same challenge remains if they want to win back-to-back Wide Bay League titles.

The side last year needed to win three games to tase the title and must do the same again this year, starting today.

The Waves take on Sunbury at Martens Oval with the winner to play Brothers Aston Villa or Bingera next week.

The loser's season is over.

"It's going to be real tough game,” The Waves coach Jason De Papi said.

"Some say they don't travel well but it is their first semi-final, anything could happen.”

The Waves won 1-0 in a tough game earlier this season and the two sides drew 3-3 recently.

"We missed a lot of chances and they had some too that game,” he said.

"They have to travel, they've got to do the hard yards but we've got to be switched on and ready to play.”

Kick off in today's game is at 5pm.
