The Jimboomba Redbacks women have a grand final in sight in just their first season in the QFA women's competition.

They play Sherwood on Saturday and coach Steve Alford is confident they can overpower the opponent with their fitness and make the division two grand final.

The Redbacks lost to Sherwood by just a point the last time the two sides met.

The Magpies kicked a behind after the siren to win 5-6-36 to 5-5-35.

The second match between the two teams was cancelled because of COVID-19.

Alford said his girls were confident of success.

"We know we can beat anyone," he said.

The team is as strong as it has been all year for the clash.

Midfielder Jess Pickles is missing after breaking a wrist a few weeks ago, but Alford is confident his players can cover for her, despite the big loss.

"She is one of our best players," he said.

Fitness coach Emma Lee has the players in peak shape for the match.

Alford said the key to winning was the girls running their way out of trouble.

"We need to make sure we push up the field and lock the ball in the front line when we get it in there," he said.

"When the ball's in defence, the forwards need to drop back and help out."

First bounce is at 4.45pm at McCarthy Homes Oval .

President Tom Vidoni urged fans to make the trip to south-west Brisbane to support the team.

"Please support the women's team on Saturday at 4.45pm," he said.

"I am very proud to say the Redbacks are one of few clubs with teams in every junior and youth age group. And introducing a senior women's team that has made finals in its first year, is very special."

Big wins for 13s, 14s

The Redbacks' under 13s and 14s teams had the biggest wins of the weekend for the club.

The 14s beat Wests/Moggill 15-5-95 to 2-0-12 at Oakman Park.

The Redbacks started strongly, booting four goals in the first quarter, before some sustained pressure from the opponents in the second.

The Redbacks recovered well to take a five-goal lead into the main break.

The third quarter was a tussle in the heat, but coach Geno Shuttleworth said the Redbacks saved their best for the final term.

"The boys put their foot down in the final quarter, kicking seven goals giving us a solid 95-12 win," he said.

"We had multiple goal kickers with the most memorable being Dennis Gaynor kicking his first goal of the season."

Cooper Manning took the player of the match honours.

The 13s girls took the bite away from the Ormeau Bulldogs, winning 14-10-94 to 0-2-2.

It made for a good party for Ila Streeter and Peta Saylor, who were playing their 50th matches for the club.

Caela Kemp was the play of the match.

Springwood Pumas beat the Redbacks in under 16s, winning 10-9-69 to 5-3-33.
