At the media event for this weekend’s Women’s Premier League Grand Final, Sarah Jacobs of the Boroondara Eagles and Natalie Martineau of South Melbourne were confident in their team's ability to come out on top.

The Eagles are the favourite coming into the match, looking to complete the treble - winning the Team App Cup, taking the Sportsmart League Title and winning the Sportsmart League Championship- with a win at this weekend’s Grand Final.

Whilst the Eagles are coming into this match-up with two very convincing wins, Jacobs commented, “We have done well this season, but that also gives us a lot of confidence to build on.”

South Melbourne are the underdogs this weekend, but are as equally motivated to come out on top.

A victory would crown them back to back WPL Sportsmart Champions, however South Melbourne’s previous two losses against Boroondara this season haven’t gone unnoticed.

Martineau noted, “I think we usually come in as the stronger team, but it’s pretty obvious this year that we’re not… Just coming in as the underdogs will make the difference.”  

They'll be looking to attackers and top scorers Tiffany Eliadis and Brittany Dudley-Smith to lead the push past a well-composed Eagle defence primed to deal with the pair.

It will be the defensive sides from both teams that will make all difference, as both teams have proven effective goal scorers with four of the top five league leading scorers playing amongst the two teams. 

With this pairing of long-time champions and this season’s dominant force, it will be a game not to be missed!

With the W-League kicking off next month, this will be the last opportunity to catch the local action before perhaps a few players join the W-League including Eagles captain Alexandra Gummer (Adelaide United) and potentially Amy Jackson whose 2015 awards include the WPL Gold Medal, Player’s Player of the Year, Golden Boot and Media’s Player of the Year.

Kick off is at 2:00pm on Sunday, 26 September 2015 at David Barro Stadium, Veneto Club, Bulleen.

The match will also be broadcast live on FFV Team App. Check here for more details.
