THEY look like they will do it again.

Moama have won four straight midweek titles.

And now, they’re in the box seat to take a fifth.

The side advanced through to the grand final after a victory over Echuca White on Friday to earn a week of well earned rest before the season ends.

Moama recorded 84 shots to blanket Echuca White, who were only able to score 56 shots, a massive 28-shot victory.

For Echuca White, their opponents become Deniliquin.

Deniliquin produced one of their best first division results of the year to end the season of Rich River.

Deniliquin produced 94 shots to Rich Rivers 58, a 36-shot victory.

In the division two first semi, Mathoura walked away with the closest of wins against Elmore, taking a 69 to 68 shot victory.

The second semi saw Moama take a 22-shot win over Rich River.

In third division, Echuca went straight through to the grand final with a seven-shot win over Deniliquin.

Deniliquin will face Ky V View this week after a six-shot win over Moama.

In the Weekend Pennant, a draw between Echuca and Moama has seen Echuca maintain top spot on the division one table.

Both sides put 72 shots down, leading to a rare draw between the two sides.

Echuca maintained top spot on the table thanks to an overall seven-point advantage over second placed Deniliquin.

Moama are still more than a chance of taking a fifth win in six pennant seasons.

If Moama want that fifth title, they will have to go the hard way, with a showdown against Rochester to stay alive in the competition.

The winner of that match will play the loser of the Echuca and Deniliquin clash for a place in the pennant grand final.

Moama may have lost to Deniliquin in division two on Saturday, but the side retained top spot with a four-game advantage ahead of Rich River.

Moama and Rich River will square off in the first semi-final, while Echuca and Deniliquin will take to the sudden death second semi.
