For the second successive season familiar foes will face off in Volleyball Horsham A and B Grade grand finals tonight.
Second semi-final winner Shados Inala and last season’s premiers Volleyroos will do battle in the A Grade grand final, while Waterhammers will be out to defend their title when they meet Von Steiger Bloods in the B Grade season decider.
Shados Inala has gone through the season undefeated and scored a strong win in the second semi-final.
Its opponent, Volleyroos, had to dig deep to defeat Phantoms in the first semi, and then performed a demolition job on Nuggets in the preliminary final to set up a grand final rematch.
In B Grade, Von Steiger Bloods recorded a five-set win against Waterhammers in the second semi-final.
Emma Avery has a settled six at her disposal, but the key to their success is the big hitting Adam Harrison and the guile of Leigh Creasey.
Young guns Tom Roberts, Nathaniel Leonforte and Pat Pignataro round out an even team.
But Waterhammers are a team that does not lie down. They know what it takes to win grand finals, having won six in their 12 year history.
They have good balance in attack with Andrew Wundke, Chris Baker and Matt Jolly, with Mark Ferguson, Dave McMaster, Michael Schneider and James Forss lending valuable support.
In C Grade it is an all Horsham College affair with the Pringles boys taking on the HC Kelsos.
Pringles has been the top team all season, but HC Kelsos has hit form at the right time, with Ruben Ferguson and Nathan Sparke key players.
In the women’s grade the St Brigid’s College Raptors will do battle against HC Thunder.
The Raptors won through by defeating the Thunder in the second semi-final, while the Thunder had to pull out all stops to win its preliminary final in five sets.
The reintroduction of the women’s competition has been a successful move by the association, with the girls enjoying volleyball. The grand final will be a fitting finale for this grade.
In juniors, St Brigid’s College Saints will face off against Holy Trinity Lutheran Raiders Black. The Saints won in four sets over Raiders Black in the second semi-final and will go in as favorites.
