Netballers prepare for semi-finals


The business end of the Nelson netball season has arrived as sides prepare for their semi-finals this Thursday night.

Jacks OPD wrapped up top spot after going unbeaten throughout the regular season and will meet Prices Pharmacy in the first semi, while Stoke NBS and Richmond45 will square off in the second.

Prices captain Shar Lowe says she is incredibly proud of her team for securing a semi-final lifeline.

Should Prices lose on Thursday, they will have a second chance to make the final when they meet the winner of semi-final two on Saturday.

Jacks captain Jess Drummond says they will not be taking Prices lightly.

She says while Jacks have had an excellent three rounds going undefeated, they haven’t had a consistent 60min as yet.

Both semi-finals start at 6.15pm.
