The girls un­der 12s won their game and, be­ing equal first on the lad­der with only one game to go, they will also be in the fi­nals.

The boys un­der 12 di­vi­sion 4 side won their game but un­for­tu­nately it wasn’t enough to give them a look into the fi­nals.

The boys un­der 12 di­vi­sion 3 thrashed their op­po­nents and have fin­ished first on the lad­der with only one defeat.

The un­der 16s had a nail-biter, down by one point in the last six sec­onds of the game.

A two-pointer by Ri­ley Bruce put the Pan­thers in front and a quick steal there­after by Vic­tor But­ler de­nied the op­po­si­tion any chance of com­ing back.

With only one loss, the un­der 16s have fin­ished sec­ond on the lad­der, head­ing into the fi­nals. Re­sults: Un­der 12 Girls 2 — Heath­cote Pan­thers 18 def Aztec Or­ange 14. Player of the game: Charlee Mur­ray
