THE Free State Crinums are two wins away from reaching the semifinals. Victory in the semifinals will take them to their third consecutive final.

The local girls are two-time champions of the Brutal Fruit Netball Premier League (2014 and 2015).

They can achieve the feat of reaching their third final with wins against second-placed Western Cape Southern Stings and Mpumalanga Sunbirds. The two must-win fixtures are on Friday (13/05) and Saturday (14/05).

Victories in the two matches will secure them a semifinal spot and bring them a step closer to defending the Brutal Fruit Netball Premier League title for the third time.

The Crinums started the competition poorly, but improved drastically with each match in the competition featuring ten netball clubs from the nine provinces.

The reigning champions are tied on ten points with the Gau­teng Golden Fireballs, who are fifth on the log table. The Free Staters are in fourth position due to a superior goal difference.

With two losses in the competition, the Crinums have won five out seven matches played. They in­tensified their chances to defend their title, recording two empha­tic wins, 45-25 over the Kwa-ZuluNatal Kingdom Stars and 52-42 against the Eastern Cape Aloes.

The Crinums’ improving form has seen five players scoop player of the match awards.

These are Maryka Holtzhausen, Tanya Mostert, Khomotso Mambunu, Alecia Puren and Gertriana Retief.
