HARROW-BALMORAL stitched up second placed Horsham District Netball Association A Grade team Noradjuha-Quantong with a nine-goal win in Saturday's preliminary final.
The Roos ended the Bombers' two-year reign as A Grade premier with the win and will now move on to play Edenhope-Apsley in the grand final.
The game started out as a slow-burning chess match, with the tempo somewhat subdued and both defences on top early.
Noaradjuha-Quantong sported a one-goal lead at quarter-time and was three goals adrift at the main change.
Despite the closeness of the contest in the first half, Harrow-Balmoral coach Rosemary Langley said she was never in doubt.
"Both teams knew what they had to do to get there and being a warm day everybody was a bit cautious when they went out," she said.
"We didn't panic because the last time we played them we were six goals down at quarter-time and this time we were only one goal down.
"It was a very workman-like performance by both teams and it was very low-scoring because the defence ends were strong all day, but the girls were focused on what they had to do to win."
Noradjuha-Quantong was forced to make two key changes in the third quarter after Georgia Francis was flattened in a collision with an opponent and treated by paramedics for suspected concussion.
Goal-shooting ace Shannon Couch was also subbed off with an undisclosed injury.
Langley said the injuries unsettled the Bombers' line-up and helped turn the game in her team's favour.
"Our goalies started moving, which helped us they stepped it up half-way through the third quarter and our midcourt players really gave us the drive and the lift," she said.
Sarah Langley, Connie Toet and Jess Quinn helped turn the game in the Roos' favour permanently, while Kate Houlihan and Ebonie Salter cut off the Bombers' avenues to goal.
Langley said her team had played many tough matches against experienced opponents in recent weeks and would be the better for it in the grand final.
