Warrack Eagles into grand final

Warrack Eagles booked a place in the Wimmera Football League grand final with a stunning fight back against nine-time reigning premiers Horsham.

The Demons kicked nine goals to one in the opening term of the second semi-final at Dimboola Recreation Reserve and led by 38 points at half-time.

The second half belonged to the Eagles though, as they piled on 11 goals to one.

It saw the Eagles record a 20-point victory.

Jesse Murphy kicked seven goals for the Eagles, with Ben Harrison best on ground.

Joel Geue kicked four goals for Horsham.

The loss relegates Horsham to next weekend’s preliminary final, where it plays the winner of Sunday’s clash between Horsham Saints and Dimboola.

Horsham had a better day on the netball court, upsetting minor premiers Stawell, 56-41.

Edenhope-Apsley earnt a place in the Horsham District Football League decider, beating Swifts by 57 points in windy conditions at Natimuk Showground.

The Saints, which have never played in a Horsham District league grand final, now face Kalkee in next weekend’s decider.

Addison Milner was best for the Saints, with Owen Phillips battling hard for the Baggies.

The blustery conditions made it hard for both teams, with only three goals kicked at the clubroom end of the ground for the day.

Edenhope-Apsley’s A Grade netball side was also a winner, defeating Kalkee 34-31 in a thriller.

It now meets Noradjuha-Quantong in the grand final. For full reports see Monday’s Wimmera Mail-Times.
