Should Cavaliers end AYC-Friends Arrows run of grand finals, the buck is sure to stop with a dogged Issy Maskell.
The robust 21-year-old will be firmly planted on the last line of defence on Saturday in a concerted effort to stop the shooting prowess of their preliminary final rivals.
"Their attacking end is just incredible," she said.
"Their ball movement is so fast, so precise and, in defence we have a hard job, but we do against every team.
"Every team in the State League has incredible shooters, so for us it's just about having hard, dogged defence.
"One-on-one, changing it up, making sure we have lots of variety and hopefully we can put that edge into it."
"Look, they have played together for years and years," Maskell said, "they have all that experience, but the underdogs usually do alright."
Cavaliers held up Arrows to add an early-season scalp in a 48-47 defensive upset.
That proved to be in line with conceding less than 44 goals per game throughout 19 appearances, extending to 43 amid a cruising 13-goal semi-final win over Kingston.
But the Hobart side during return matches piled on 62 and 63 goals respectively in an empathic response to the earlier April loss.
Maskell said the key to an inaugural all-Northern derby grand final at the Silverdome will be to share the load.
"Going into this weekend, we have a hard defence and a controlled attack so hopefully we'll make it," she said.
