Premiership glory within reach

The stage is now set for the grand finals of the Limestone Coast Women’s Football League after two thrilling preliminary finals being played at Casterton on the weekend.

Mundulla V Kybybolite

Kybybolite stepped up to the challenge on Sunday and took down the minor premiers Mundulla in a neck and neck match that proved to be an absolute arm wrestle.

The opening quarter was high scoring with five goals kicked, as Mundulla got off to a hot start, recording three majors.

Kyby was not far behind as they had the same scoring shots but only converted two of them to trail by five at the break.

Mundulla continued to build their lead with another goal in the second quarter, as once again Kyby had the same amount of scoring shots but just could not get the ball through the big sticks.

At half time Mundulla’s lead grew to 10 points.

Kyby started to find some consistency in front of goal in the third term, kicking two goals in the quarter.

Mundulla kept the game close with a goal of their own to keep the margin to single digits, holding a one point lead heading into the final term.

With the grand final spot on the line, Kyby came up with a big time goal to snatch a two point lead.

Kyby locked down Mundulla in the fourth quarter and held them scoreless to come away with the upset win.

Kybybolite’s Ella Boston had a big game in Casterton, kicking three goals and helping her side get the win.

Kybybolite defeated Mundulla 6.3 (39) to 5.2 (32)

Kongorong V South Gambier

South Gambier came away with a nail biting win over Kongorong in the B grade prelim final.

The first quarter was a low scoring one with only one goal in the quarter, with South taking the early lead to kickstart the game and was up by seven points at the first break.

Kongorong bounced back in the second quarter and had countless inside 50 entries, nailing two of their four shots at goal.

The Demons also had scoring opportunities but could not convert their shots, only managing three points.

This enabled Kongorong to lead by four at the main break.

The Hawks lost their momentum after the half time break, going scoreless in the third.

South on the other hand owned the football and had three shots at goal, converting one to reclaim the lead and be up by four at the last change.

Kongorong’s scoring troubles continued in the final term as they failed to capitalise on opportunities to take the lead, having two shots at goal but only scoring two points.

The Demons sealed the game with a fourth quarter goal that sent them into the B grade grand final.

It was an all round great performance from the South girls with Bailey Broome, Chole Haskins and Lucy Pridham all kicking a goal in the monumental win.

South Gambier defeated Kongorong 3.6 (24) to 2.4 (16)
