Uranquinty are the first team through to the Wagga netball finals after a nine-goal win over Kooringal on Saturday.
The minor premiers maintained a lead throughout the game but had Kooringal kept fighting.
At times they got back within two goals, only for the competition favourites to hit back.
After a commanding performance in the fourth quarter they managed to come away with a 61-52 win.
Coach Rosemary Clarke was pleased to lock in their grand final spot.
“It was really good and it gives them a weekend off,” Clarke said.
“I think it is really what they need as they’ve had a lot on lately.
“A weekend off will do us the world of good.”
Kooringal utilised the height of their shooter Sophie Fawns who worked well with fellow shooter Lauren Cooper, with both shooting accurately.
Kooringal’s Eliza Kelly and Bridie Willis supported the shooters well while Olivia Tilyard, Tilly Vearing and Rachael Grant played consistently in centre court for Uranquinty.
Kooringal’s defence, Lea Kerr and Phoebe Wallace, were tight limiting Uranquinty’s shooters Lana Duffy and Hannah Finemore’s opportunities at the post but it wasn’t enough to come away with the victory.
Uranqunity have only lost once this season, but have bounced back to winning ways in their last two games.
They were undermanned against Turvey Park after the majority of the side was delayed due to other netball commitments and only five A Reserve players took to the court in the first quarter.
Clarke thought it was a good learning curve for the side.
It also takes off some of the pressure coming into the grand final undefeated.
Kooringal will get a second chance next week to join Uranquinty in the grand final when they take on New Kids Aces.
New Kids Aces ended the season of Shooting Stars with a 14-goal win in the elimination final.
New Kids had a seven-goal lead at half-time but saw off a Stars comeback.
Stars made some positional changes with Hayley Stevens moving into centre and Maddie McIntyre into WD.
These changes saw improved ball flow down the court and Stars came within two goals.
However, New Kids conversion rate remained high in the last quarter with Cloe Hilderbrand shooting consistently and Ella Fellows maintaining a tight defence limiting Stars shooting opportunities.
Coming away with a 54-40 win, the premiers are looking to set up a rematch of last year’s decider.
They scored a big win over Kooringal when the teams first met, but Kooringal hit back from the 62-35 with a 53-49 win in August.
