The B-Grade had a slow start to the year due to injuries but managed to end the home and away season in fifth position on the ladder. Now the girls are ready to play finals and are set to face eighth placed Shepparton East on the weekend.

From fifth position they have the potential to go all the way this year. C-Grade
The C Grade girls are going into the finals with good form. Finishing with nine wins and ending the season in fifth position, this week the girls come up against Deniliquin which will be a hard fought game.

The Under 17s just scraped into finals finishing the home and away season in eighth position and securing an elimination showdown with Katandra this Sunday at Nathalia. After facing the Cats in the last game of the home and away season and going down, the Lions are looking to even the ledger.

After just making the finals these girls are hungry for success and will be looking to get a win against Katandra to kick start their finals campaign.
