South Mandurah will be eager to snare a pair of premierships this coming weekend, with the Falcons set to feature in both the Peel Football and Netball League women's and second division grand finals.

In the women's they'll go toe-to-toe with Pinjarra for a third straight grand final match-up between the two clubs.

Souths won through to that one on the back of a dominant second half against Baldivis in last weekend's preliminary final.

The Falcons were off to an uncharacteristic slow start in the contest, with Baldivis scoring two goals to their one in the opening term.

But they managed to turn the corner in the second and by half time they led by 13 points.

It was in the later stages they put their foot down, though, ending the Brumbies' flag aspirations with six goals to zip in the second half.

In fact, Baldivis failed to register a score outside the first term.

Now the Falcons will need to carry that hot form into their grand final clash with Pinjarra at Rushton Park this Saturday.

South Mandurah went down to the Tigers by just five points when the two collided in the semi final round a fortnight ago.

Meanwhile the Falcons will also be hoping to claim back-to-back second division flags when they meet with Safety Bay on Saturday afternoon.

The Stingers will head into the game on the back of a victory over Baldivis Blue in the preliminary final, which saw a hot start prove enough to get them over the line.

Safety Bay kicked four unanswered goals in the opening term against the Brumbies, and they were able to maintain their lead from there with Brandon Burt bagging four goals on the day.

The Stingers will need an improved showing from their semi final clash with South Mandurah in the big game, though, having gone down to the Falcons by 40 points in that one.
