Qualifying Final
Olinda-Ferny Creek 14.22(106) d Healesville 5.17(47)
Olinda will take on Woori Yallock next week in the second semi-final while Healesville will need to regroup as they take on Wandin in the last chance first semi next week. Olinda peppered the goals against the wind in the first quarter, kicking 2.8 to 1.4 but inaccuracy made the quarter time margin only 10 points. With the wind, they could not find the big sticks with another 2.8 to Healesville’s two behinds and the lead at the main break was 28 points. Their accuracy was still under question in the third term but both sides contested the ball and both kicked 3.5. Olinda found the goals in the last, kicking 7.1 to 1.6 to come away with a big 59-point win at the final siren. Olinda will need to sort out their goalkicking for next week as 36 scoring shots to 22 should have seen the final margin a whole lot different to what it ended up.

Elimination Final
Wandin 7.11(53) d Upwey-Tecoma 4.13(37)
Wandin will take on Healesville in the first semi next week while Upwey-Tecoma’s season has come to an end. In a low-scoring game, Upwey-Tecoma got the jump in the first term, kicking 3.3 with the wind to just one behind. Wandin bounced back in the second quarter, kicking 6.5 and held Upwey-Tecoma to only four behinds. The margin at the main break was 17 points in Wandin’s favour. Inaccuracy plagued Wandin in the third term with a 1.5 quarter but Upwey could only manage 1.1. Upwey-Tecoma held Wandin scoreless in the last but could not convert when it mattered and only kicked five behinds to give Wandin the win at the final siren.
