“All our number one teams made semi-finals and our 18s girls were playing in the premier league division. They played great but just ran out of legs in the final.”

Four other Goldminers sides made grand finals across the state.

The premier division under 18s girls had a great contest against Coffs Harbour Suns, eventually going down 76-67.

The under 16s Goldminers division one girls lost 64-52 to Griffith Demons, the 14s boys divsion two Bathurst side had a tough 56-17 match against the Bellinger Valley Braves and the 12s girls division three squad narrowly missed a title against Moss Vale Magic 24-22.

“The 12s girls lost a really close one at home. They were very unlucky not to win that one,” Masters said.

“The 16s girls played Griffith in their Western Junior League final as well. They brought in a couple of West Wyalong juniors so our girls did a really good job against them.”
