ORANGE A won’t hold back in tomorrow’s Central West State League netball finals.
The Orange side went through this year’s competition undefeated to finish on top of the division one ladder.
Tomorrow they go up against Dubbo A in the semi-final, with the winner going into the grand final later the same day.
Should Orange A claim the title, it would be Orange’s 18th consecutive division one state league win.
Orange A player Tegan Dray expects to be pushed by Dubbo A first up.
“No game is ever easy,” Dray said.
“The scorelines never reflect the workrate of both teams.
“We love playing State League and like playing the other towns. Plus we enjoy playing together.”
When Orange A took on Dubbo A during the round matches, the defending champions came out on top 71-30.
It was their second closest result during the competition.
Parkes were the only side to get closer in their 74-51 loss.
Orange A are determined to win tomorrow’s title as it would qualify them to line up in the Netball NSW Inter-Regional State League Championships in late September.
They would come up against other teams which had taken out their State League titles.
Orange finished third in this year’s Netball NSW Open State Championships and are keen to continue testing themselves.
“That’s another amazing opportunity,” Dray said.
“That’s certainly a motivating factor for any team. It is for us, especially after our success at the state championships.”
“We want to go out there and play good netball.”
Tomorrow’s division one semi-finals will be played at 9am at the Orange PCYC, and the final starts at 11.40am.
