Concord, without Australian representative Doey Choi, had a much harder task against a plucky Bonnie Doon outfit, with the semifinal not decided until the final match on the 18th hole.
With the 'Doon grabbing two early matches from Suzanne Fairhurst and Alena Oppenheimer, it took the talented pair of Maddison Woodley, Sophie Yip to square the contest.
Belinda Ji turned out to be the woman for the occasion, securing a place in the final for the defending champions with a one-up win over Taylor Newlin on the final hole.
Cronulla will be out snare thier first Major Pennant when they take on Avondale in the Division Two final after both teams recorded 3 to 2 wins over their rivals Pymble and Moore Park.
