SEMI-finals time is upon us, with five teams still in the running to take out this year’s Group 7 premiership.
Five will be shortened to four after this weekend, with an elimination and a qualifying semi-final to be played.
It is do or die at Kevin Walsh Oval tomorrow afternoon, where the Jamberoo Superoos go head-to-head with local rivals the Kiama Knights in a sudden death fixture.
The qualifying semi will be played on Sunday afternoon at Cec Glenholmes Oval, where the Warilla-Lake South Gorillas host the Milton-Ulladulla Bulldogs.
The Gorillas just managed to pip the Bulldogs for second spot and therefore earned the right to host a home final.
They will be fighting for a place in next week’s major-semi against minor premiers Gerringong, who have this week off.
While the Gorillas have been in better form lately, the Bulldogs led the competition for the majority of the season, so it could certainly go either way.
The Knights will be out to try to prove they are not just making up numbers in the finals, but a loss to Albion Park in the final round is hardly the ideal preparation.
Jamberoo should fancy their chances on their home soil, although the Knights did come out on top when the two sides last met.
They might have missed the boat in the top grade, but the Nowra-Bomaderry Jets are still alive in the ladies league tag and will play against Warilla in their qualifying final on Sunday.
Berry also has one team still in the running, with their under 18s finishing as minor premiers, meaning they have this week off.
