Adamstown will take added confidence into their season-defining Women’s Premier League encounter next weekend after being crowned Northern NSW Women’s State Cup champions.
Rosebud, who haven’t lifted silverware in female competitions since clinching four minor and major titles between 2012 and 2014, defeated Wallsend 3-0 in the decider of the knockout tournament at Speers Point on Sunday.
Annika D’Amico opened Adamstown’s account midway through the first half before 15-year-old Callie Thomas and Olivia Trinka sealed the result with goals in the second stanza.
“The girls were just so excited,” Rosebud coach Paul Devitis said. “And after so many games I was so pleased with how well they played on the last day.”
Earlier on day three of the carnival Adamstown won their semi-final 2-0 over South Wallsend, who they face again on July 29 in what shapes as a clash that will decide which team makes the regular-season top-four.
“That gives us such a big lift going into such a massive game,” Devitis said.
Rosebud are fifth by two points with two matches left.
