Rennie 3.0.18 def by Strathmerton 9.15.69
The under 17’s looked like they were short of a gallop and got pumped by 51 points.
From a slow start things went downhill in term 2 and the game was done by the long break with Strathmerton dominating.
Jack Kennedy, Shaw and McInness were the standouts with Soutter holding his head high at full back. Put that one away and focus on Deni Rovers in an elimination semi.

Rennie 4.5.29 def by Katunga 8.1.49
The Hoppers started well with Plugger Phillips at full forward goaling and Rennie sneaking out to a 9 point break.
Unfortunately quality forward forays, were few and far between as Katunga found another gear and Rennie failed to clear the ball down the line.
Elliott was enormous in the pivot, Doherty super at full back but they had too many mates who had off days and went down by 20 points.
Now they face Blighty in an elimination semi final.

Rennie 38 defeated by Berrigan 49
Excited to have made finals, B grade trained well in the week leading up to Sunday’s match and set out some basic plays for the game.
Berrigan got the jump in the first quarter, which made Rennie work harder to break even.
The second half saw the girls make better decisions with the ball and settle in the attack end.
The Hoppers won the last quarter but couldn’t bridge the gap so the girls are now out of finals.
Very proud of their efforts, the girls have trained hard this year, both at Focus Gym with Sarah and on Thursday nights at Rennie.
Their team and club spirit was evident at all club functions, and they were a great bunch of girls to work with.
Congratulations to Nada Nolen who played her 200th club game for Rennie.

Rennie 42 defeated Strathmerton 40
In warmer conditions than what Rennie were used to at Yarroweyah, the girls faced up against fourth placed Strathmerton in a tough first game of finals.
As shown in the final score, the game was close due to the tough pressure placed on them.
However the girls all continued to lift and it was the efforts of all 10 girls, both on the court and off, who all should be proud of their efforts.
Chelsea, Hayley and Phoebe dominated the whole game and never ever dropped their heads, which lifted the whole team.
Although there are some things the team need to improve on, all 10 girls have worked exceptionally hard all season, and should look forward to their next game in two weeks time to fight for a position in the grand final.

What a ripper day to play a final. The girls came out strong from the first whistle.
