Netball: Poppets Blue upset Macquarie to move into A1 grand final

POPPETS Blue have advanced into the Hawkesbury City Netball Association A1 Grade grand final after defeating Macquarie at the weekend.

Macquarie finished the regular season atop the ladder, but that did not faze Poppets, who won 50-43.

Macquarie will get another bite of the cherry this weekend, as the club takes on Londonderry in the preliminary final.

Londonderry defeated Colo 35-27, with Colo now out of the finals, while Poppets Blue will get the week off.

The preliminary final will take place on Saturday at 2.30pm, while the grand final will be at 3pm the following Saturday.

Meanwhile in Metro League Netball, Hawkesbury City won its seventh game in a row in division five.

Hawkesbury defeated Illawarra District 43-37 last Tuesday night in the round 16 clash.

Hawkesbury’s final two matches are against Penrith and then Bankstown.
