Steelers book grand final spot
Steelers book grand final spot

Steelers became the first team in the Eastern Goldfields Netball Association to book their place in the grand final following and eight-goal victory over Rookies at the weekend.

Leading by a goal at the first break, Steelers put in a dominant second-quarter display, scoring 13 goals to seven.

It was an impressive burst which set- up a match-winning seven-goal lead at the main change.

Outscoring Rookies by another three goals in the third term, giving them a comfortable 10-goal lead, Steelers were outscored in the final term.

However, they were never really challenged and the 47-39 victory gives them a break this weekend in preparation for the grand final.

Rookies will now look to stay alive in a preliminary final clash this weekend against Sonix, who defeated Mana, 35-26 in the first semi-final.
