CALIVIL United won the Loddon Valley Netball League's minor premiership, after ending the home and away season with a win against Bridgewater. 

Calivil only lost one game and drew another in its 2014 season, finishing on top of the ladder. 

On the weekend, Calivil won 44 to 30 against the fifth-placed Bridgewater. 

Captain Christie Rogers said it was great to end the season on a high note. 

"It was actually a pretty tight first half and then we were able to build in the second half," she said. 

Rogers said defenders Lauren Rogers and Teigan Redwood played impressive games. 

"We had a lot of defensive intercepts which allowed us to have a lot more chances to score," she said. 

Calivil will now have the week off before playing the winner of either YCW or Mitiamo.

The Roos scored an upset win over the Eagles in its final game of the season, winning by a goal.

The Bulldogs won 57 to 27. 

"We tried a few different combinations to prepare for the finals," Mann said. 

"It is good to have that versatility on court."

Mann said her team was looking forward to the challenge of playing finals. 

"Anything can happen when you play finals, we are in with a chance," she said. 

"The competition is so tight this season. The girls are really excited, it should be a good game."
