For the second time in 3 W-League seasons, Perth Glory's Kate Gill has taken out the league's Golden Boot.

Although it was not her express aim for 2014, Gill's 12 goals were enough for her to pip teammate Sam Kerr to one of the prize achievements for a leading striker.

"It's always in the back of your mind but it was more just about having a good season with the team," she said.

"We've got such a quality team and I think it's fair on the girls that we obviously played some good football and got the results that we got."

The all-time leading goal scorer for the Matildas, and second on the W-League all-time goal scoring table, the 30 year old's record has been second to none in the past three seasons.

29 goals at an average of 9.6 goals per season and this season she became the first player to score 5 goals in match.

It's equally impressive considering the challenge for those Golden Boot prizes have come from within her own team with Lisa De Vanna (2012/13) and Sam Kerr (2014) pushing her all the way.

"It's hard to kind of compare your form in those seasons because it's just totally different," she said of her two Golden Boot seasons.

"We have new players within the squad who bring a whole different bunch of attributes so that has helped in itself."

Once on the end of unflattering records, this season the Glory has been setting records of their own including the most points in a season (30), most goals in a season (39) and best goal difference in a season (+29).

A large part of that is due to Gill and her front third teammates. Having Matildas teammates Kerr and Caitlin Foord join a forward line that already included Glory stalwarts Elisa D'Ovidio and Marianna Tabain has made life a significantly easier.

"We [Kerr and Forrd] know each other so well from our national team experience and I think allowing to bring that to the W-League has been great."

"I think with players, with Caitlin and Sam, they are quite unpredictable at times; that's what makes them such great assets to the team."

Down back Perth have also had their best season with the defensive unit led by Mackenzie Arnold conceding the fewest goals in the club's history. Gill recognises the contribution they have made to the overall team success.

"We were given so much freedom up front because our backline has just been exceptional."

"That has really allowed us to do be more free up front."

With the premiership sewn up weeks in advance, Perth has been biding their time ahead of this Sunday's semi final at nib Stadium.

Disregarding how comfortably in front they finished the season, for Gill and her team the advent of the finals means a reset.

"I don't think you can really compare finals football to what has happened during the season."

"It's a totally different game when that comes around and you can't really reflect on what has happened in past games."

If Perth are to win their first final and complete the premiership/championship double it will be without the talismanic Kerr after the 21 year old succumbed to a knee injury. It is a loss keenly felt by her teammates.

"For team dynamics, it’s a huge loss for us," Gill stated.

"Sammy brings a lot on the field but she also brings a lot off the field. She is just such a loveable person and such a character to have around."

Despite her absence, Gill is confident the premiers have the squad depth to compensate.

"We have got quite a good squad this year. Whoever is going to come in and fit in her shoes is going to have to adapt and I'm sure they will do that just as well as Sammy has been doing."

For the first time in their history Perth have had the wood over their semi-final opponents Sydney FC with the Glory winning both encounters by a 6-0 aggregate score.

Will the fans might be choke full of confidence, the Glory striker is more cautious and wary of the Sky Blues.

"Who knows what kind of Sydney FC is going to turn up on Sunday."

"We have just got to keep playing our game and doing what we have been doing well all year."
