WARRACK Eagles made light work of Stawell on its way to securing third position on the Wimmera Football League ladder.
The Eagles won by 82 points at Central Park to set up a mouth-watering grand final replay against Horsham on Saturday.
Coach Tim Inkster said he was relieved to get the win and the all-important double chance.
Inkster said there was still plenty to work on this week and described the Eagles' second quarter as ordinary.
"It was an improved performance from last week, but we were a bit suspect again when the pressure was on," he said.
Stawell co-coach Shane Field said it was a good first-half from his charges, but they got blown out of the water after the main break.
"We played well in patches but they scored very quickly in patches, which hurt us a lot," he said.
Field praised the efforts of co-captain Tom Eckel, who he described as one of the competition's elite midfielders. "They tried to tag Tom out but he continued to get the ball. I think he had about 42 possessions," he said.
Stawell was also well-serviced by Brenton Potter, who kicked five majors in his first senior match for 2013.
On-baller Zac Marrow won plenty of the ball, while Field, Jamie Bach and Cam Kimber worked hard all afternoon.
Eagles Peter Weir and Dale Hinkley kicked five goals apiece, while experienced heads Ben Harrison, Ben Spicer, Brad Krahe and Jacob Cheney were all impressive.
Emerging on-baller Jarred Martin made a positive return from injury, which he suffered in round seven against the Diggers.
