DAVID King's third century in five matches took Ringwood into the Premier Cricket semi-finals on Sunday.
King made 110 as the Rams posted 6-260 from 122 overs, effectively combining with the rain to shut Fitzroy-Doncaster out of their quarter-final and force the match into a draw.
The Rams went through as the higher-ranked team.
Earlier in their innings the Rams looked in some trouble at 3-42 before King combined with Joe Loorham (70 off 116 balls) to make 122 for the fourth wicket. With a large chunk of play lost on Saturday due to rain, the Lions called off the game knowing the target and time was well beyond them.
The Rams will face Prahran, which also got through to the semis as the higher-ranked side as its quarter final against Carlton was interrupted by rain on both mornings.
The True Blues will be a telling opponent for the Rams as they possess veteran players like Dimitri Mascarenhas and Neil Schlittler. Their fast bowler Rhys Adams (48 wickets) and veteran spinner Bryce McGain (54 wickets) have been among the leading wicket-takers in the competition this season.
The Rams' thirds and fourths have also made semi-finals in their respective competitions.
The thirds host Melbourne at Jubilee Park and the fourths play Camberwell Magpies at a venue that will be announced later this week.
