The Under 12-2 Warriors contested the Mod major semi-final last round successfully beating the Bomaderry Swamp Rats 26-12 in a skilful, entertaining game.
The Warriors were ahead 10-6 at halftime.
A disciplined and controlled second half saw them come away with a convincing win.
It was an overall determined team effort with solid performances from Lachlan Birchall, Michael Browne and Cohen Langlo, while Bailey Soper was sensational in defence.
The team will now aim for back-to-back premierships in Ulladulla in two weeks’ time.
The Warriors games around the region also held special significance last weekend, with the remaining teams honouring club Life Member, Les Harris.
One minute’s silence and black armbands showed respect and appreciation for Les’s 50-year dedication to the club and game.
The funeral of Les Harris will be held on Friday, August 10 at 2pm at Shoalhaven Memorial Gardens, Worrigee.
