The Greater Northern Raiders have made it through to the grand final of the Cricket Tasmania Premier League Under 18 Vacation competition after finishing off an impressive roster series with two more wins on Tuesday.
Matched up against Clarence in the first Twenty20 game of the day at Kangaroo Bay Oval, the Raiders' batsmen, led by James Simpson (64) and Spencer Hayes (62), dominated proceedings to give the team a healthy total of 3-185.
In reply, Clarence were always behind the eight-ball, and despite only losing four wickets, could only manage a total of 137 despite an unbeaten 72 from Archie Hurd.
The Raiders' bowling attack came to the fore in the second match against South Hobart Sandy Bay, bundling the Sharks out for 73 thanks to 3-7 from Aidan O'Connor and two wickets each to Hayes and Will Bennett.
Jack Manix-Geeves (25 not out) top scored in the chase, which was done and dusted in the 13th over with six wickets in hand.
The results leave the Raiders with a perfect 8-0 record and sets up a clash against Lindisfarne in the decider, which will be played at Blundstone Arena on Wednesday at 1pm.
The two teams met in round eight on January 14, with the Raiders winning by 40 runs at UTAS Stadium after managing to defend a score of 125.
