At the third break the Pirates were down 17-18, a three-point shot from Sam Deola was enough to spur the side on, and the accuracy of Noah Long, followed by Elijah Bruns with two from the line, the Pirates ran out victors 30-24.

In the semi final the structure and teamwork from all players was excellent, Echuca down 14-19 at the half time break.

With scores difficult to come by in the third term for both teams it was an exciting final quarter. Long continuing his fantastic form adding to the score, however the strength of Geelong in the end was too good for the Pirates.

Coach Lachlan Huismann and team manager Kylie Bruns together with families and supporters were very proud of every player and their effort for the weekend.

The respect, teamwork and sportsmanship they had all shown was to be commended.
