B straight through

Fin­ley win earns spot in Septem­ber 23 grand fi­nal

Southern Riverina news - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Fin­ley’s B grade side has won its way through to the Mur­ray League grand fi­nals to be played at Rum­balara on Septem­ber 23.

Their chal­lenger will be de­cided in the semi fi­nal be­ing played this Satur­day in Co­bram.

For the first time this year, B grade was able to field a squad of nine play­ers.

There were no pas­sen­gers on the day, ev­ery­one com­pleted their role to give Fin­ley a come-from-be­hind vic­tory over Ton­gala. The mar­gin was just three goals. Ton­gala is an out­stand­ing team and under very dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances they were their to rep­re­sent their club on the day.

Bronte Rus­sell had her game of the sea­son in the ring, earn­ing her the Bowl­ing Club Award.

Sa­van­nah Wil­son was ex­cep­tional in Wing De­fence & was awarded the Shoex Award.

In C re­serve, Fin­ley de­feated a third placed De­niliquin Rams, 38 to 35.

The Cats came out fir­ing from the start to main­tain a 3-5 goal lead af­ter each quar­ter.

Lori Parm­ley, Brit­tany Scott, Lau­ren Clarke and Ge­orgie Sloane worked tire­lessly all game to bring the ball down to our ever con­sis­tent shoot­ers Kaz Donkin and Sally Bick­er­ton who never dis­ap­point with their ac­cu­racy.

Emma Evans and Brid­get Te­gart worked a tight de­fense turn­ing the ball over time and time again stop­ping Deni from scor­ing.

The girls fought till the end and got up by three by the fi­nal bell. C grade has done it again! The girls are on the climb, only one win away from the big dance.

All the girls had a fan­tas­tic game, and it’s good to see that the more we prac­tice at train­ing the more it pays off.
