It was preliminary final weekend in the Katanning Netball Association for both junior and senior players.

McIntosh were unable to beat Kojonup Opals in the junior division and this sets up a highly anticipated grand final to come this Saturday between Kojonup Opals and QFH.

Seniors had a great turnout as spectators filled up the grand stands for all four games, which were very tight.

It was a tough and fast-paced game in A-grade with Kojonup 1 keeping up with Olympians 1 in the first half.
