After winning through to the Division One Intermediate Girls Grand Final, Clonard College took on Ballarat Clarendon College in the first match of two yesterday and eventually came out on top 5.6 (36) to 4.2 (26)  in a tight and entertaining contest.

Lucy Marescuk was named best-on-ground for Clonard in a dominant display and was ably assisted by Charli Hoey and Stella Huxtable who also had strong games.

For Ballarat Clarendon, Millie Lang was exceptional all day with her intercept marking and attack on the ball and was arguably best afield in a losing side.

In the Senior Girls Grand Final, Caulfield proved too strong for Rowville, prevailing by 46-points in an impressive display, 9.9 (63) to 2.5 (17).

It was a well-balanced effort from the Caulfield side with all players contributing to the commanding victory, but Siena Farrell was awarded best-on-ground honours with two goals the highlight of a classy performance.

Earlier in the week, the Boys competition kicked off with Division One Semi-Finals at Highgate Recreation Reserve and Williamstown Oval.

In the Intermediate division, Parade College were too strong for Brighton Grammar out at Williamstown Oval, whilst St Patrick's College easily accounted for Marcellin in the other matchup at Highgate.

In the Seniors, Whitefriars sent a message to the competition, as they put in a dominant display to cruise to the Grand Final, whilst in the other match it was a tougher victory for St Pat's as they managed to outlast Emmanuel College in a good contest.

The results will see Parade College and St Patrick's College meet in the Intermediate Boys Grand Final before Whitefriars also take on St Patrick's in the Seniors with the two games to be played back-to-back on Wednesday 3 August at Box Hill Stadium, Box Hill commencing at 11:00am.
