Saturday Pennant – Preliminary Finals – 7th March 2020

The Semi Finals last weekend produced mixed results, however we still have 2 teams in the finals Division 5 and Division 3.

Division 3 had a close match most of the day against Bendigo but managed to close out the game with a win in the last few ends and now into the Preliminary Final against Bendigo East at Bendigo on the Yarrington Green ( Gaol Green )

Division 5 just missed on moving directly into the Grand Final with a hard fought loss against Campbells Creek. They now have Inglewood at Bendigo on the Hesse Green.

Division 7 also competitive through out the match with the tide turning each way but just fell at the last hurdle with a loss against White Hills. Well done all year and also your efforts in finals.

Best of Luck to both Divisions 3 and 5 this weekend.

Note: To side Managers and Seconds : please ensure you collect the $5 green fees from all team members playing to be handed into the Host Club. Bags have been provided to each of you. Thankyou.
