Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - SPORT - Danielle Jarvis

DID­JURIGUR’S se­nior di­vi­sion 4 side was forced to for­feit in the third quar­ter of its semi-fi­nal against Tregear as one of its play­ers bat­tled through with a bro­ken fin­ger on Satur­day.

The fi­nal score be­fore the for­feit was 23-10, and en­sured an all-Tregear fi­nal at Po­pon­detta Park this week­end.

The newly formed Did­jurigur club man­aged to make it to the semi-fi­nal round, de­spite be­ing plagued with in­juries in the lat­ter half of the sea­son.

Goal de­fence Sharon Gori said the semi-fi­nal was a good game, de­spite her team be­ing forced to bow out at the end of the third.

“We’re quite proud of what we did. We’ve got to be proud we made it to the semi-fi­nals,” Gori said.

“We en­tered the court with only five play­ers and I had a bro­ken fin­ger, and that didn’t help.

“In the end, we ended up call­ing it in the third quar­ter.”

Tregear mid­courter Ka­t­rina de St Croix said the side would have pre­ferred to play the full team.

“All our team was there and each player was able to play their po­si­tion,” de St Croix said.

“It was un­for­tu­nate that Did­jurigur did not have all of their team, oth­er­wise it would have been a re­ally close match. We’ve had re­ally close matches ev­ery other time we played them.”

Tregear white will play Tregear blue on Satur­day for the chance to face the Emer­alds in the grand fi­nal in two weeks.
