The NSW 17/U and 19/U are through to the National Netball Championships Grand Finals tomorrow after an outstanding display against both Victorian teams in the Semis today.
The first time the 17s met the Victorians in Round 4 they lost by 3, while the 19s drew with them – but both NSW sides came back stronger than ever for their Semi Final rematch.
The 17s were strong from the start of the game, going into half-time with a five-goal lead (15-10) over Victoria, which stretched to nine goals by three-quarter time (27-16), and finally finishing off with a 38-22 win.
They’ll now face off against 2018 premiers South Australia in the Grand Final tomorrow at 12.30pm.
The 19s Semi Final was a real nail-biter, with the score swinging both ways for what seemed like the whole match. With just five minutes to go in the game, NSW were only up by 1 goal against the Victorians but by the final whistle, they stretched their lead to three goals to win 35-32.
Just like the 17s, the 19s will be up against South Australia at 1.45pm for the big Grand Final. Both games will be live streamed on the Netball Australia Facebook page.
