They’ve done it! Congratulations to the Basketball Club’s senior Women who became BigV Div 2 premiers last Saturday. In the second match of the best-of-three grand final series, the side prevailed 69 – 56 away at Pakenham. Emmie O’Nial was dominant with an impressive 23 rebounds as well as 22 points and three assists. The team had previously defeated Pakenham 75 – 47 at home in the first match of the series.

The VL1 Women’s Hockey side are straight through to the grand final after cruising to a 5 – 2 win over North West Lightning in Round 1 of the finals series. The side, who lost just once in the regular season to finish minor premiers, will now enjoy a week off before the grand final against either Mornington Peninsula or North West Lightning. The Women’s VL1 Reserves team are also straight through to the grand final after a 3 – 0 win over Mornington.

The Women’s Football Club’s VFLW team won their elimination final against the Geelong Cats at the Port Melbourne Cricket Ground. North Melbourne AFLW players Jasmine Garner (4 goals) and Emma Kearney starred for the Mugars on the way to a 13-point win, 9.2 – 56 to 6.7 – 43. The victory means the side will play the Southern Saints in this Sunday’s semi-final, 11:45am also at the Port Melbourne Cricket Ground. In Men’s Football, the Blacks also won by 13-points to finish their home-and-away season on a high, defeating the Parkdale Vultures 12.17 – 89 to 11.10 – 76 to secure a 3rd-place finish and a finals berth. They are up against 4th-placed Beaumaris in this Saturday’s semi-final.

The Men’s Gridiron Royals backed up last week’s opening round success with a dominant victory over Ballarat Gridiron, winning 55 – 6 at home. The senior Women’s team begin their campaign on 15 September away against the Northern Raiders.
