Stawell will go into Saturday’s 13 and under netball grand final as underdogs against Horsham.
The Warriors and Demons have met four times throughout 2017, with Horsham claiming three wins, including a victory in the qualifying semi final just two weeks ago.
Despite the underdog status, Stawell coach Toni Stewart said she expects a relatively even contest.
“If everything goes right for us and they (Horsham) are a little off their game you never know what can happen,” she said.
“Grand finals are a completely different ball game.”
Only two of Stawell’s players have played in a grand final before.
Madi Taylor and Molly Orr played in Stawell’s heartbreaking one-goal loss to Horsham in the 2016 13 and under grand final.
Stewart said her team is very excited. “We have a pretty new group,” she said.
“The senior footy coach Tom Eckel will have a chat to the girls and give them advice on what a grand final is like. We are really looking forward to the game.
“The girls have really had to toughen up this year and they have become very competitive.
“We had a tough preliminary final against the Saints but we had a strong second half, so hopefully we can carry that into Saturday.”
Stewart said the main message for her players is to have fun.
“I want the girls to really enjoy it and give it their best shot,” she said. “Hopefully we can do enough to come away with a win.”
