Finals futures were on the line in tough conditions for Round 15 of the SFNL’s netball competition with many teams stepping up to make finals opportunities come true. It will now be down to the final round next week to completely seal the deal.
Dingley (1) 60 defeated Cheltenham (1) 35
It was 1st vs 2nd on the ladder. A showcase of what the A1 grand final could just be. Dingley took control from the start and once again displayed their dominance of the season. Cheltenham put up a decent fight but it wasn’t enough to match the relentless force of Dingley.
It was a very similar outcome to when they played in round six with Cheltenham going down by 24.
Dingley will be beaming with confidence going into the finals. Whereas Cheltenham now have time to recoup, analyse their game and make a plan for when they meet again.
St Kilda City (1) 32 defeated Cranbourne Eagles (2) 28
Exciting times for St Kilda City with this win over Cranbourne as this places them in 5th on the ladder with the same amount of wins as Cheltenham in 4th. Cheltenham will be disappointed with their outcome this week going down to Dingley as this leaves their finals position vulnerable to St Kilda City
It will be up to the final round! St Kilda City are expected to win next week playing 8th on the ladder, Caulfield Bears. Whereas Cheltenham are up for more of a challenge as they verse 3rd, St Pauls McKinnon.
South Yarra (2) 59 defeated Parkdale Vultures (1) 29
A huge win for South Yarra as they win by 30 points against 3rd on the ladder, Parkdale Vultures.
Due to this win they have now stepped up into 4th spot as Carrum Patterson Lakes lost to top team Modialloc.
In the final round there is still a chance for Carrum Patterson Lakes to reclaim a finals position if they beat 3rd Parkdale Vultures and if South Yarra lose to 2nd Doveton Doves. It is unlikely, but never say never!
