Emerald finals sure to sparkle

RUNDLE Park will host six games of great netball when the Emerald association holds its grand finals next week.

Following a night of junior preliminary finals that saw all three minor premiers knocked out of the grand finals by third and fourth placed teams, Bullets secured their spot in the Intermediate grand final with an 11-7 win over Freckles.

They will now face Cougars in the grand final.

Ninjas will line up against Demons in the Cadet B grand final at 6.30pm on Monday, after the former defeated Frogs 22-9 in the preliminary final.

This promises to be a close match with both teams hitting their stride at the right end of the season.

The Cadet A game at 6.30pm will see Boltz face off against Friction, after Friction secured their spot with a 53-43 win over Kougars.

Tuesday night's senior grand finals will open with the Division 2 showdown between The Others and Benchwarmers at 6.30pm.

The Others secured the first berth in the match with a one point victory over Benchwarmers in the semi-final last week and will be looking for a repeat performance to take out the season.

Benchwarmers downed C Boms 24-21 in this week's closely contested knockout final to set up the rematch.

Cookies and Cream will face Hot Shots in the Division 3 grand final, after defeating Zoomers 45-44 in a nail-biting knockout final. The timing for this match is to be confirmed.

In what is predicted to be the game of the season, last year's premiers Cyclones will look to make it two in a row when they face the fast-finishing Red Hot in the Division 1 grand final at 8pm. Red Hot secured their place with a strong last quarter in their 44-32 win over Meerkats in the preliminary final.
