EAST Fremantle has now won all 15 of its WAFLW matches in 2022 to be the first team into the Grand Final while Claremont and Swan Districts will now fight over the right to take them on in the decider.

The WAFLW finals series for 2022 got underway on Sunday afternoon in two tight and tense match ups between four quality teams with five points the margin in the end in both contests.

By the end of the afternoon, East Fremantle was into the Grand Final, Claremont would use its second chance to host the preliminary final, Swan Districts stayed alive and the quest for a third straight premiership for Peel Thunder was over.

The first semi-final was a cut-throat affair on Sunday afternoon at Mandurah's Lane Group Stadium and it was Swan Districts who prevailed 5.4 (34) to 4.5 (29) against Peel Thunder after leading all afternoon.

The second semi-final then took place at New Choice Homes Park and East Fremantle maintained its undefeated 2022 season but it was hard earned in the eventual 2.2 (14) to 1.3 (9) victory against Claremont with the Sharks kicking the only two goals after half-time.

What that means is that East Fremantle is straight into the Grand Final while Claremont will host Swan Districts in Sunday's preliminary final and the season is over for Peel Thunder.

Meanwhile in the WAFLW Reserves, Swan Districts kept its season alive in the first semi-final by beating Subiaco 7.13 (55) to 1.2 (8) at Lane Group Stadium.

East Fremantle advanced straight to the Reserves Grand Final as well with the 4.5 (29) to 3.2 (20) win against Claremont at New Choice Homes Park.

With the Sharks into the Grand Final, Claremont and Swan Districts will also battle in Sunday's preliminary final at Revo Fitness Stadium.

And in the Youth Girls Rogers Cup on Sunday, South Fremantle advanced to the preliminary final by beating Claremont 9.6 (60) to 7.7 (49) at Lane Group Stadium.

East Fremantle ensured it was straight into the Grand Final in all three grades by beating East Fremantle 11.9 (75) to 2.1 (13) at New Choice Homes Park.

Peel Thunder and South Fremantle will now face off in Sunday's Rogers Cup preliminary final.
