matched and play a style of footy that mir­rors the other.

This si­mul­ta­ne­ously al­lows both sides to play their nat­u­ral game style and find a way to win.

The fi­nal quar­ter was a tight en­counter, but what else do you ex­pect when there’s a grand fi­nal berth on the line.

For the ma­jor­ity of the quar­ter there was vir­tu­ally no scor­ing aside from a point or two each way as both sides des­per­ately threw them­selves at the con­test not will­ing to give an inch each way.

The mar­gin hov­ered at around the two goal mar­gin as nei­ther side were able to con­vert their shots on goal un­til Michael Shiels man­aged to break out of a con­test and kicked one from 20 me­tres out to stretch the mar­gin in the dy­ing mo­ments.

Vi­o­let Town man­aged to re­turn fire with one them­selves but the dam­age was done and Nagam­bie were again through to the grand fi­nal.

Vi­o­let Town now have to go the long way around and face Avenel in a preliminary fi­nal at Tal­ly­ga­roopna next Satur­day while Nagam­bie will take the week off and wait to see who they will face off against to de­fend their ti­tle.
