The buzz surrounding Orange Netball Association’s finals is reaching fever pitch after game times for this weekend’s major and minor semi-finals were released on Wednesday morning.
As expected, the division one Toyota Cup grand final qualifier will be the main event, with Vipers and Orange City Craig Harvey Mechanical kicking off at 2.50pm on Sir Neville Howse Stadium’s show court.
It won’t be the only game at that time though, or earlier.
In an absolute smorgasboard of finals netball, all seven divisions’ semi-finals will be played simultaneously on the PCYC’s courts at either 1.10pm or 2.50.
The early slot will feature the division one, division three, division four and division six minor finals, along with the major semi-finals in divisions two, five and seven.
Alongside the Toyota Cup’s main game, the later window also features the division three, four and six major semi-finals, and the division two, five and seven minors.
While Orange City Newey’s Drive-Thru Cleaners take on Hawks Royals in the top division’s third-versus-fourth play-offs, there’s also a number of blockbuster match-ups in the lower divisions, plenty between Orange City and Hawks sides.
The two clubs have eight and seven sides, respectively, contesting the finals across the seven divisions, with division three’s major between Hawks Terry White Chemist and Orange City Epiroc one of the biggest.
Division seven’s major semi-final is a massive game as well, an inevitably thrilling Orange High School derby between the Cobras and Chipmunks.
