It was a fitting way to end what’s been an incredible year on the sporting field for Albury CIty’s Sally Lynch.
Lynch was instrumental in City’s comeback 3-2 triumph against Wangaratta in the AWFA senior women’s cup final on Sunday to finish off an unbeaten season.
But it wasn’t the first time she’d managed that in 2018, having also played with Thurgoona in the inaugural season of the AFL NEB Female Football League Open Women’s competition and not dropping a game.
“It was good to get two grand final wins and two undefeated years actually, I’m really happy with that,” Lynhc said.
“Everyone was a bit highly strung, but I came off the bench and tried to calm everyone down a little bit.
“Everyone settled and that’s when we started playing our game and the goals came naturally.”
Lynch admitted it was a real team effort that sparked the impressive turnaround for Albury City.
“We win as a team, we lose as a team,” she said.
“Other teams tried to put the pressure on us, but we tried not to let it get to us.”
