Eltham kept their season alive with a 4.18 (42) to 2.4 (16) victory over Greensborough. Early goals to Kate Cardamone and Rhiannon Burleigh gave the Panthers a 16-point quarter time lead. The Boro responded with goals from Rachel Spencer and Giuseppina Tarantello to close the deficit to just six points by half time. Eltham’s inaccurate third quarter saw Maegan Devine’s goal sandwiched in between eight behinds, but nonetheless they stretched their lead out to 20 points by the final change. Cardamone’s second goal early in the fourth quarter ensured the Panthers ended their day on a high note as they ran away 26-point winners. Kate Cardamone and Leah Darcy were named best afield for the victors, while Olivia Angwin and Rebecca Buckley were the best performers for the Boro – who bowed out of the finals with the defeat.
Epping Recreation Reserve will again host the semi finals this weekend, with the second semi finals taking place on Saturday, and the first semi finals featuring the Panthers at 10am on Sunday.
