WITH seasons on the line there was plenty of good netball played at the Alexandra Oval courts on Sunday.

The Warrack Eagles managed to prolong their season by outlasting the Horsham Saints in the B Grade first semi-final.

The Burras had won all three encounters between the sides during the regular season and came up with the goods again to record the 37-28 win.

Dimboola’s 17 and under season will last for at least one more season after the side managed to get over the line against Ararat. It was a tightly contested match but the Roos ultimately secured spot in the preliminary final with a 56-50 win.

A big second quarter set up a Horsham Demons win in the 15 and under first semi-final. Scores were locked at 10-all after the first quarter off play before the Demons outscored Stawell by six goals in the second.

It was a lead which ultimately carried the Demons into the preliminary final as the side won 36-31.

A winning second quarter also played a big part as the Horsham Saints eliminated Nhill in the 13 and under game.

The Saints played a strong game to win 27-19.
