Co-ordinator of the competition, Yvonne Toohey, was proud to see two young teams rise to the occasion.

Stingers finished on top winning 31 goals to 21.

Sherry Sandow proved to be invaluable for her team on the court to be named player of the final.

Toohey became involved in the club when her daughter started play and will be stepping down from her role as co-ordinator in 2019.

"I think it is time for some new blood and to bring some new ideas into the club.”
