Kaikoura netball results from Saturday, August 25: Jetz 24, Rebels B 14. Jetz proved too strong in this game, Jen Armstrong showing her experience in centre court, accurate shooting by Carla Walford and Kim Cosmatos and strong defence by Liana Sligo being the difference between these two teams. Jetz will now meet HS year 10 in the C Grade final.
InRoaders 37, PNOW 17. This was a comprehensive performance by InRoaders, with outstanding games from Sue Grady and Kate Jones.
This now sets up the B Grade final between InRoaders and Aromas Misfits.
Donegal Diamonds 28, Lobster Inn Rebels 25. A 7-goal lead at the end of the first quarter was enough to give Diamonds a close win over Rebels, although Rebels did win each of the three remaining spells.
Strong games from Caroline Johnston and Essentia Feron and tight circle defence by Maria Adams and Eva Seres were all factors in this win.
Emma Thomas, Vanessa Chapman and Tracey Sinclair had solid games for Rebels.

A full field of more than 130 women golfers will descend on Kaikoura in just over two weeks time for the ever-popular three-day golf tournament.
The event kicks off on Monday, September 17 with a four-ball best ball competition.
Tuesday, September 18 will see a stableford round played, followed by the championship round on Wednesday.
Entries will be coming from as far afield as Motueka, Nelson, Picton, Blenheim, Christchurch and Geraldine. The new major sponsor coming on board this year is Sharpies Christchurch.
This will be the tournament's fifth year, and it is proving just as popular as ever, which means there is a waiting list again this year.
Not only does the tournament bring a lot of people to town, the calibre of the players should mean there will be some pretty impressive golf for the spectators.
