THE Greens have added the Frank Fiumara Cup trophy to their cabinet after a thrilling 28-22 victory over old rivals Yanco-Wamoon on Sunday afternoon.
It was the Hawks who got away to a good start at No. 1 Oval, crossing the line first to have the score at 4-0 early in the match.
However, the Greens recovered and were able to lead for the rest of the match, despite the Hawks making a late comeback and scoring just before the final siren.
It is the first time in many years the Greens have held aloft the Frank Fiumara Cup and they will be hoping their win on Sunday holds them in good stead for the Group 20 finals series, which gets underway this weekend.
Leeton coach Warren Weir was pleased with his team's effort, particularly their ability to bounce back following their loss the weekend before against Darlington Point-Coleambally.
"It was a very physical game," he said.
"That's definitely the sort of game you want going into the finals.
"The biggest thing for us obviously getting beaten last week was to bounce back against one of the top sides, so it's great. It was an all-round performance for us.
"It puts us in fifth spot, so we'll get a home final against DPC on Saturday. Gives us a bit of a chance of redemption."
The Greens are hoping to have Kirtis Fisher return from injury this weekend, but Taina Heke is under a cloud after injuring his ankle on Sunday afternoon.
Meanwhile, the Hawks will spend this weekend regrouping as they prepare for their first final against West Wyalong on Sunday.
