Blighty’s under-17s also played on Sunday, defeating Berrigan by 10 goals to keep their season alive.

The young Redeyes started strongly and finished the game on a high to win 39-29.

Captain Jemma Lostroh maintained the speed of the game and settled the rest of the girls down when it was necessary.

She was named in her team’s best players alongside Meg Erickson and Gabby Ives.

The under-17s will follow their C grade counterparts to Berrigan on Sunday for a semi-final showdown with Mathoura.

Blighty’s B grade and under-15s finished on top of the ladder and had the weekend off.

The B-graders face Strathmerton in the second semi-final at Jerilderie this Saturday after the Bulldogs defeated Mathoura 47-40 at the weekend.

The under-15s take on the hosts, Jerilderie, who defeated the Deni Rovers 31-28 at the weekend.

The winners of the second semi-finals advance straight to the grand final, while the losers get a second chance in the preliminary final.
