Newcastle Permanent Grand Final Series Update – Week 2

September 12th, 2016

Women’s Football was the highlight of Week TWO of the Newcastle Permanent Building Society Grand Final Series last weekend.

After some entertaining football played last week when Pointscore Champions Lismore Richmond Rovers defeated Italo Stars in Women’s Division 5 followed by Tintenbar East Ballina coming from fifth on the ladder to win the grand final against Italo Stars, Sunday saw the remaining three Women’s divisions completed for season 2016.

Lismore Workers prevailed in an enthralling and epic Women’s Division 3 grand final against Alstonville, with a penalty shoot-out requiring an extraordinary twenty shots at goal from the penalty spot before Lismore Workers were eventually declared champions. The Women’s Division 2 grand final was a close tussle between Pointscore Champions Goonellabah and coastal club Pottsville Beach FC. It was one beautifully executed goal from a set play for Pottsville Beach that was enough to give them the victory.

Perennial Women’s Premier Division powerhouse Bangalow was tested by a young and talented Lismore Thistles team, however it was two decisive goals in the second half by FFNC 2016 Women’s Premier Division Player of the Year, Hollie Jarrett, that was enough to see the Bluedogs win their fourth consecutive title. Jarrett was named the Lisa Casagrande Medallist for being Player of the Match, with the prestigious medal presented by Lisa’s father Primo.
