Text:4.45PM: Wellington A have maintained their nerve and overcome their tiredness to win a thrilling final against a fiery Sydney team, in a penalty shoot-out. The match at Te Whaea Park in Newtown was locked up 1-1 at the end of play and two consecutive five minute halves could not split the teams, making for an incredibly tense match. The rain set in just as the match was in overtime and Wellington, playing in the city’s black and yellow colours, was urged on by a small but vocal crowd. The wind had played a factor in some of the games early in the day, but eased for this final match. Powerful shots from two Wellington players hit the back of the net and a baby blue clad Sydney was unable to hit goal, leaving the home team to celebrate with their a rendition of their team song.
