Just Social has qualified for yet another South West Gippsland Dart League grand final following a thrashing of Warriors in the second week of the competition’s finals series.

Despite a long lay-off from competition due to the long weekend, and earning a rest in the first week of finals, the defending champions beat Warriors 8-1 in a grand final rematch from last season to earn direct qualification to this edition’s decider.

The Warriors will play Snipers next week for a chance at redemption, after Snipers knocked-off Paky One 8-4.

Warriors won the most recent match-up between the two in the first week of finals, upsetting the higher-ranked Snipers 8-3.

In the competition’s lower half, Rebels will play off for the Don Brown Memorial Trophy after getting the better of the current defending trophy holders, 26ers, 8-6.

26ers will face Mud Rats for a chance to repeat their success of last season, who defeated Bullseyes 8-5.

Results – Division One: Just Social 8 v Warriors 1, Snipers 8 v Paky One 4.

Division Two: Rebels 8 v 26ers 6, Mud Rats 8 v Bullseyes 5.

Fixture – Finals Week Three
