“They both showed lots of heart and made some great saves,” said Artful veteran Kris Fuller. “Tiffany Skoryeko and Hailey Noakes had great runs at the net with great hustle up front. Amazing work and control came from our midfield – applause for Bailey Limb and Lauren Wishart in the centre. Our outside mids all got a workout with amazing runs from Devyn McLennan, Jade Simm and Kelsey Middleton, who played mid and defence.”

Fuller also gave major props to the sweeper/stopper combo of Laura Schmidt and Katie Wishart along with fullbacks Ariel Pyatt and Bryanna Cole.

“What a terrific positive season,” added Fuller.

Players with Heart honours went to Lazar of the winners and Nahanni Fellenz of Do It Drywall.

Birbilis capped the hatty with a header off a rebound from a corner by Andy Zubot. Player with Heart for the Sistas went to keeper Giselle Duquette, who was fabulous, making a phenomenal penalty-kick save in the second half.

The Sistas celebrated the end to a great season, and gave a big shout out to their coaching team of Volker Otto and Will Wiens.
