Footloose firing up for final

FINALS are heating up in the west with teams in the Barcaldine league throwing everything they’ve got into a last-ditch chance to secure a grand final berth.

In A-grade, Rebels face off against Footloose in the elimination final for a shot at the premiership title against Trinians.

Barcaldine Netball Association president Lyn Jackson said at this stage of the season, it was anyone’s game.

“On paper, Footloose should win it but all it takes is someone to be away with work for it all to come undone,” she said.

“If they play smart, Rebels have the chance to cause an upset.”

Regardless of tonight’s result, the winner is in for a tough battle in the grand final against Trinians, a team with a 20-year reputation.

“The trouble is once there they can’t seem to get over the line. Last year they lost the final by one point,” Lyn said.
