Congratulations to the Canterbury Eagles in their 4-2 win over the Newcastle Northstars in the NSWIHA Women's division final. The 2 teams met for the second year in a row to play out the grand final where Canterbury reclaimed the trophy after getting silver last year. It was a hard fought game with Newcastle netting the first goal (Kath McOnie). Canterbury took the next 2 (Sharna Godfrey; Stephenie Cochrane) before Newcastle evened up the score (Sharnita Crompton). 30 seconds later Canterbury scored again (Godfrey from Cochrane) which would prove to be the game winner. After a few penalties were given either way, Canterbury secured the lead (Godfrey from Sharlene Vella, Cochrane) and took the trophy home.
