Blighty B-graders almost there

Win today and Blighty's B grade netballers will find themselves in the Picola & District Netball League grand final.

August 23, 2014 4:00am

Deniliquin and surrounds will be in the thick of things when week two of the Picola & District Netball League finals kick off tomorrow.

Local interest centres on 12 of the 14 games being played throughout Saturday and Sunday.

Second semi-finals are being played at Jerilderie on Saturday with winners moving straight into the grand final.

Losers will get a second chance when they take on the winners of the first semi-finals, which are being played at Berrigan on Sunday.

After finishing on top of the ladder and having last week off, Blighty’s B grade side will tackle Strathmerton for a spot in the decider.

Although they are the team to beat, the Redeyes could consider themselves lucky they aren’t playing Mathoura, which is the only team the minor premiers have failed to beat.

Strathy beat Mathoura last weekend to get a shot at Blighty.

Also playing at Jerilderie tomorrow will be Mathoura’s C-graders, up against Strathmerton.

The undefeated Deni Rovers C-Reserves will take on the hosts, as will the Rovers under-17s.

Blighty’s under-15s kick off the day when they also play Jerilderie.

Headlining the bill at Berrigan on Sunday is the Deni Rovers A grade side, which caused an upset in beating Picola United last weekend.

The Roos rose to the challenge when it counted and another boilover could be on the cards when they meet Jerilderie in the semi-final.

In B grade, Mathoura’s season remains alive and they will play Picola United for a spot in the preliminary final.

An entertaining local derby awaits Rovers and Blighty in C grade, while Mathoura’s C-Reserves battle Strathmerton.

There’s another derby in under-17s, between the Rovers and Redeyes, while its Deni versus Strathmerton in the under-15s and under-13s.
