Pride get three-peat

The Canterbury United Pride achieved back to back to back wins of the National Women’s Football League, and North Canterbury was well represented by Waimak United players Freya Lodge-Whitham, and Annie Foote, along with former players Gabi Rennie and Tahlia Herman-Watt.

The Pride faced Capital in the final, after front runners Auckland were docked points for an administrative error, which left the Pride who had only lost to Auckland, favourites to win the final. If not for Capital keeper Georgia Candy, it would have been a one-sided affair early on, as she saved two penalties, along with some other fine saves, and deservedly won the MVP award. However, the Pride did finally find the back of the net, with two goals to Rennie, and one each for Britney-Lee Nicholson, and Nicola Dominikovich,  to finish with a comprehensive 4-0 victory.

Unfortunately the Canterbury United Dragons went down in their match with Team Wellington, defeated 1-3.
