Didjurigur bow out of contest
SENIOR DIVISION SIDE FORCED TO FORFEIT IN SEMI-FINAL
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.
