LEXTON is through to its first Maryborough-Castlemaine District Football League grand final.
In the second MCDFL preliminary final upset of the weekend, the Tigers were too good for Newstead on Sunday, winning 15.13 (103) to 13.15 (93) at Princes Park.
Damon Aspland, James Templeton, full-forward Matt Brown (six goals), Timothy Oliver and Robert Hind were the best for the Tigers, who had trailed by 13 points at half-time.
Lexton kicked eight goals to four after half-time.
Sam Kerr, Nathan Webster and David Wall (three goals) played well for Newstead.
The Tigers - who lost preliminary finals the past two years when they had been flag favourites - will meet Navarre in next Sunday's grand final.
