Boomers produced the performance of the AWFA senior women’s season to upstage Albury City in Sunday’s cup final, embracing the tag of underdogs along the way.

“I think just having that pressure off going in as the underdogs helped us,” Boomers’ star Jenae Abel said.

“They’ve been undefeated all year, Bridget McDiarmid was the Star Player, what a team, but to keep that pressure on for 90 minutes… what a feeling.”

Forward Torey Saisanid said the side was forced to change its formation after two losses to City this season.

“We managed to get Maddy (Harris) forward when we needed to and look what happened, she scored for us,” Saisanid said.
