If I were a gambler, I would wipe this season’s Wimmera Netball Association results, clean the slate and call game-on for teams  competing for the ultimate prize that will be sitting court-side on grand final day at Warracknabeal’s Anzac Park.

Sure, where you sit on the ladder gives you a chance. But where you finish gives you confidence.

But we all know finals are a different ball game.

Last week Stawell said goodbye to season 2015 in style with a convincing win over Nhill. Dimboola waited until the last quarter to run out victorious after a good glimpse at Horsham Saints’ future talent.

Horsham dominated from the first whistle to finish the season undefeated with a consolidating win over Ararat. Minyip-Murtoa led all day to scrape across the line against spirited Warrack Eagles in a thriller.

Qualifying final

While the Eagles have had the wood over the Burras this season. Their hit-out last weekend told a different story.

The Eagles, without key players Megan Werner and Kerry Schultz, went down by one goal.

Goal attack Werner will be welcomed back into the maroon and gold this weekend, and her contest with classy Minyip-Murtoa defender Stevie Bibby will be a spectacle.

Consistent Burras centre Spencer Smith’s passing into the goalers will be damaging for the opposition, but she will have to be on her game early  because Eagles co-captain Sarah Spicer will be in her way.

Spicer will make Smith work for everything; the damaging workhorse in the middle for the Eagles will provide plenty of quality play across the court to make it her own.
