Three Dees in grand final

Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

Jer­ilderie C grade will take on Pi­cola in the grand final on Satur­day at 2pm at Blighty Recre­ation Re­serve.

Pi­cola fin­ished first on the lad­der this year but the Demons eas­ily knocked them off by 20 goals two weeks ago in a final.

‘‘I’m con­fi­dent, how­ever the game could go ei­ther way,’’ C grade coach Elisha Conn said.

‘‘We don’t have key play­ers, all of the girls con­trib­ute equally.’’

Jer­ilderie’s Un­der 17s have had a great sea­son in 2017, top­ping it off with a spot in the Grand Final.

The side shows an in­cred­i­ble depth in their ca­pa­bil­i­ties on court, util­is­ing the abil­ity to switch po­si­tions to match their op­po­nents of the day.

There has been much im­prove­ment through­out the sea­son, work­ing on foot­work, ball place­ment, move­ment in the ring and strength in de­fence.

Show­ing a new level of courage, com­mit­ment and game skills, this final will test the Demons’ strength as a team.

Be­lieve in your­selves, be­lieve in your team, sup­port each other and give ev­ery­thing you have — Jer­ilderie is very proud of you all.

The 17s play Strath­mer­ton at Blighty on Satur­day at 11am, while the thirds foot­ballers meet Pi­cola at 10.15am.

Sam Catena is the coach of the Jer­ilderie thirds.
