A late goal from Taryn Trevenen guided Wagin to the 2020 Upper Great Southern Hockey Association women’s A-grade grand final over Williams on Saturday night.

Early on, Williams’ Fleur Ford found the back of the net in the first quarter to give Williams a 1-0 lead at quarter-time.

Both defences worked overtime in the second quarter to keep the ball out, with many good shots stopped.

At half-time, Williams still led by a solitary goal.

Wagin scored from an early penalty corner in the third quarter as Jessie Allington found the back of the net.

Entering an exciting fourth quarter locked together, there were close shots on goal and great defence from both teams.
