Finalists in winning mood

All six contenders will enter the Riddell District Netball League finals on winning notes.

The top five sides all won on Saturday, while Melton Centrals had the bye but were victors against Diggers Rest in the previous round.

Riddell has topped the ladder, followed by Rupertswood, Macedon, Romsey, Lancefield and the Centrals.

In the closest match of the final round, Macedon beat Diggers Rest 57-50.

Rebecca Colwell continued her good season by shooting 53 of the Cats’ 57 goals.

Meredith Ball scored 33 goals for the Burras, who finished seventh.

The Cats will play Melton Centrals in an elimination final at Ian Cowie Reserve, Rockbank, on Saturday.

Riddell, which had a 92-16 win over the Sunbury Kangaroos, will play Rupertswood in a qualifying final on Saturday at Greenhill Reserve, Wallan.

The Bombers look likely to have their full squad back, with Lauren Anglin and Lee Chicas returning to the side against the Kangaroos.

The Sharks enter the final on the back of a 63-21 win over Wallan.

Kirsten Daley put in another best-on- court performance for the Sharks, with Emma Wright stepping up in defence in the absence of Tess Abbott.

Romsey and Lancefield will play in the other elimination final at Eric Boardman Reserve on Sunday.

On Saturday, the Redbacks defeated Woodend-Hesket 78-15.

Hope Evans, the competition’s leading goalscorer, netted 65 goals to take her tally for the year to 700.

Missing both their wings, Tayla Behan and Soli Ropati, the Redbacks had to switch things around with several players taking up multiple positions.

Lancefield smashed Kilmore 92-20.
