Granville eyes a double, book grand final spot

IT'S been four years since Granville last did the double.

But it's looking more likely both Maryborough and District Division 1 titles will be heading their way again this year after their men's and women's teams qualified for their respective grand finals on Saturday.

It was a good day to be a part of the black and yellow army with Granville's women's outfit, the Rovers, delivering a clean sheet against reigning premiers Uniteds to win 2-0.

The Tigers were as impressive, with Aaron Grevell scoring a double to help Granville score its second win in as many weeks over the Wallaroos, winning 4-2.

The Wallaroos will look to rebound next Saturday against Brothers, who edged out a spirited Cooloola outfit in an extra time thriller.

Andrew Eaves was the hero for Brothers, scoring the match-winner to finish with a double in his team's 3-2 victory.

In the other women's final, the Wallaroos ended Tinana's campaign with a hard-fought 2-1 victory.

Despite being pleased by her team's performance, Tinana coach Kathy Rogers said the loss summed up her side's season of near misses.

"We weren't disgraced during the season, every game we played was close," she said.

"We had lots of attack, but just couldn't get the ball into the net."

The Wallaroos face Uniteds in the preliminary final.
