Edge Hill Tigers win Ladies Grand Final

By Carl Portella

Edge Hill United Ladies hit the ground running in the Premier Ladies Grand final against premiers Leichhardt at Endeavor Park.
After taking an early lead which was short lived the Tigers scored a further three goals in the first half to take a 4-1 lead into the break.
Leichhardt failed to live up to their expectations and the second half proved they were well and truly out of the match as the Tigers went further ahead with the resumption of the second half. Leichhardt seemed tired, Edge Hill United on the other hand looked like could have played two matches.
With 20 minutes on the clock the Tigers went 6-1 up but celebrations were dampened as one of their players was stretchered of with a knee holding the game up for half an hour while emergency services were called to care for the injured player.
When play resumed the Tigers pick up from where they left off continuing wave after wave of attacks on the Leichhardt goal.
The inevitable was looming and the final whistle put an end to a stellar performance by Edge Hill United winning the FNQ Football Premier Ladies grand final 6-1.
