FOR the first time in the club's history, the Condamine Cods have two chances at snatching a grand final victory.

Both the A and B Grade teams are through to the second round of the Darling Downs Risdon Cup finals after they prevailed over opposition teams in sudden death games in Toowoomba at the weekend.

B-grade was too strong for the St George Frillnecks, coming away with a 28-13 win courtesy of tries by Adam Murphy, Ash Morgan, Darren McTigue and Will McPhee, all converted by Angus Smith.

A-grade were unstoppable, trouncing the Toowoomba Bears 43-5 in their first win over the Toowoomba side this season.

The Cods ran in six tries to the Bears' one for a final score of 43-5 (Carel Lubbe, Emosi Vunivosa (2), Doug McNicholl (2) and Jone Navosa).

This weekend both teams will head to Dalby for another round of sudden death finals with both A and B Grade set to play the Toowoomba Rangers.

The Condamine Codettes are also playing sudden death football, facing UQ Gatton at Dalby.
