Congratulations first and foremost for those sides that have made a Grand Final today but for some sides the reward is much bigger, promotion to the next level of amateur football. 
IN the Premier second semi final it was Old Xavs who jumped out of the gates the fastest with the first eight scoring shots of the game. Unfortunately for them only half of them were goals.   
So when Collegians, through Shura Taft kicked a goal after the quarter time siren to cut the margin to just 13 points there was a feeling of opportunity wasted. 
Old Xavs still lead by 11 at half time but it was all Collegians from there. 
Collegians kicked 11 goals to 3 for in the second half to win by 38 points and book themselves a tilt at a title defence in a fortnights time. 
In Premier B, Uni Blacks suffocated St Kevins to leave them goalless at quarter time and only a goal at half and three quarter team allowed them to record a point victory to book their place in Premier football next season. 
In Premier C the winner of the second semi final would progress to Premier B for the first time in their history and after a positive start Fitzroy would be disappointed at the final margin. 
Parkdale held the Roys goalless for two quarters and eventually steamrolled them to win by 84 points. 
Peninsula Pirates are celebrating their elevation to Premier C next season after triumphing over Old Geeling in the Division 1 Preliminary Final. 
The final margin was 47 points, with the Pirates to meet the waiting NOBs/St Pat’s in next week’s decider. 
In Division 2, Prahran Assumption are celebrating a double promotion with their win over Eltham Collegians booking them a place in Division 1 next season and Grand Final date with Bulleen Templestowe next weekend.
Division 3 saw a turn up as Ivanhoe came from two goals down at the final change, to win by a goal kicking into to the wind to defeat flag favourite Yarra Valley and progress to a Grand Final and Division 2 football in 2013. 
In Division 4, Swinburne Uni were too strong for Eley Park Sharks and the dream Grand Final against South Mornington now awaits the Razorbacks.  
There are first semi finals tomorrow all over Melbourne and we are back at Sportscover Arena tomorrow for the Premier first semi between De La Salle and Old Scotch. 
Coverage starts at 1.45pm on 96.5 Inner FM.
