All four teams will battle for a place in the Great Southern Women’s Football League grand final when the semifinals take place under lights tomorrow night at Tigerland in season two of the rising competition.

After six regular rounds and then a break over the school holidays, the semifinals will be held tomorrow to determine who will face off in the decider seven days later.

The semifinals are decided on ladder position with premiership fancies Royals, who have gone through the home-and-away rounds undefeated, the top-ranked team.

They get to face the bottom placed Albany in the first of back-to-back games at 5.45pm.

Railways, who have also been impressive in the normal season winning four games and losing twice to the Lions, finished in second spot and tackle reigning premiers and third-placed North Albany in the 7pm fixture.

The winners of each semifinal will progress to next Friday’s grand final at Centennial Stadium.

The Lions will be chasing successive appearances in the GSWFL decider while the Kangas will have to overcome the Tigers for the first time this year if they are to make the grand final again.

Sharks went down to the Lions by 39 points in the opening round and then lost by 33 points in their second encounter later on.

The Tigers have won both clashes with the Kangas, prevailing in a round one thriller by five points before recording a 17-point triumph in round seven.

Entry for tomorrow’s semifinals is by gold coin.
