After the close encounters last week in the elimination and qualifying finals, the semi-finals have produced blow-out results.

The preliminary finals will be contested by the teams that finished in the top four positions at the end of the minor round.

PABC Dynamite will play Gunners, while PABC Shooters face RSL Cannons, with the two winning teams to contest the Grand Final at Central Augusta Football Club on Saturday night, August 4.

The Port Augusta Singles Final will be played between Tim Allport from Gunners and Brodie Tuip from RSL Cannons, with both players looking for their first singles title.

RSL Cannons 8 d Flinders Ferals 1

Timm Thompson got the underdogs off to a good start when he defeated Brodie Grantham in the first frame of the night.

However, Cannons then flexed their muscles, not giving their opponents a look in for the remainder of the match.

Brodie Tuip, Ian long, James Little and Peter Greatbatch accounted for Neville Karger, Dale Whittard, Terry Forsyth and Bill Taylor respectively, with Greatbatch producing another eightball pot-out.

With the score at 4-1 after the first set, Cannons only took four more frames to finish the match, with Long, Greatbatch, Grantham and Tuip all successful in the second set.

Gunners 8 d South Bulldogs 2

Gunners won the first two frames of the opening set, with Tim Allport defeating Cody Alchin, while Anthony Grantham accounted for Andrew Reynolds in a very tight match.

Bill Baker provided a spark for Bulldogs by defeating Taylor Meyer, but his teammates could not capitalise. Troy Coe and Scott Mackinlay defeated Kirk and Dewayne Pieters respectively to keep Gunners ahead.

With the score at 4-1 after the first set, Rhys Bavington defeated Reynolds to start the second set.

Kirk Pieters then accounted for Mackinlay to make the score 5-2, but Gunners rallied to win the next three frames through Allport, Grantham and Coe to complete a comprehensive victory.
