Eastbourne Eagles stifled a determined Lakeside Hammers side to earn a 53-39 second-leg win and a 99-86 aggregate victory at Arlington.

The Hammers took a slender one-point lead to the south coast, but were blown away by Cameron Woodward's 14 and Bjarne Pedersen's 13-point hauls.

Lakeside kept within five points of the aggregate score until heat 12.

But the Eagles secured a play-off final against Poole Pirates with 14 points in the last three races.
