The side claimed victory through their defeat of Merewether United FC 1-0 at Rockwell Automation Park in Weston on Sunday, August 26.

“These girls have excited us and enthralled us all season,” coach, Brenton Doyle said after the grand final.
“Even though today nerves at times got the better of them they just didn’t say no, at the end they just kept going like they have all year.”
All three of the FMNC WPL sides, the under 14s, under 17s and under 20s qualified for the final series this season, with the under 20s side defeated in the grand final by Warner’s Bay 0-1 in the 69th minute of the game.
