LEETON-WHITTON has one side through to the grand final, while two more will be hitting the court again this weekend in a last-chance bid. 

C grade are the first team into the premiership decider, which will be held on September 23. 

The Crows took out Collingullie-Glenfield Park by just one goal last weekend. 

“The girls were down all day and, it was only in the last minute of the game that our defenders intercepted a ball in the oppositions goal circle,” coach Rachal Broadbent said. “We fed the ball down and converted from this.

“It was than our centre and again we converted. April Schmetzer and Meg Wakeman were outstanding for the Crows, as well as Maggie Maguire.

“There is a lot to work on from this game. Playing in the stadium was a bit mind-blowing for our girls and we need to soak the atmosphere in and use this to our advantage come grand final.”

In B grade the Crows went down 45-34 to Turvey Park in their first loss of the season. 

“The second half had some positional changes and although we went down we did win the second half by two goals,” Broadbent said. 

“Evelyn Morris was consistent throughout the game in defence and Kiera McCallum didn’t miss a shot in the second half. We had three weeks off prior to this game and you could tell on the court.

“We will play Wagga tigers on Sunday at Wagga. If we all put in our ‘one percenters’ I’m sure we will be on the court come grand final.”

A reserve also lost last weekend and coach Caryn Deaton was hopeful of turning that result around this weekend against Wagga. 

“It was a tough game … we were just flat across the court,” she said. 

“We need to make sure this weekend we’re playing consistently across the court in all positions. 

“We’ve definitely got it in us to win.”
