AFTER 11 rounds of football across Wide Bay, the finalists of the men's Four Cities League and women's Three Cities League have been decided.

Only one team from the Fraser Coast has made it through to the finals with Sunbury to travel to Bundaberg next Saturday after finishing third on the Three Cities League ladder.

The Blues take on powerhouse Moore Park in the semi-final, with the winner going on to play either minor premiers Bingera or Brothers Aston Villa for the inaugural Three Cities League title.

It was a sad story in the men's competition with Fraser Coast teams occupying four of the bottom five places on the ladder.

United Warriors' 5-2 victory over Diggers on Saturday ensured them fifth spot, but still missing a finals berth.

Sam Hill bagged a hat-trick in the scrappy affair, which the Warriors hope will give them momentum when they return to the Fraser Coast League next month.

Despite missing a spot in the finals, Hill said the Four Cities League has helped local players keep improving against quality opposition.

"It's always good playing quality opposition and probably the best thing about the Four Cities League is there is plenty more teams compared to the Fraser Coast League," he said.

"Compared to last year we were pretty happy with how we've gone even though we finished fifth.

"Considering we started pretty badly with two or three losses straight up, I was happy with the way we finished."

In the Three Cities League, the Warriors non-finals fate was decided by Bayside Strikers' 3-0 loss to Brothers Aston Villa on Saturday.
