Kooringal High School coach David Antill is expecting a battle for the ages when his side takes to the field against reigning premiers Mater Dei Catholic College for Wednesday night’s Shipard Shield decider.
The girls in yellow have everything to play for after losing last year’s grand final to Mater Dei on penalties but will face a challenge against Rod Buik’s talented side.
“I don’t know how it’ll go, if we’re honest,” Antill said.
“We’ve been in the mix for the past few years and played in a few finals.
“I’m confident in saying it’ll be a tight game because finals usually are.”
Two-time Tiffany Selby Medal winner Jen Woodbury will lead Kooringal while Henwood Park star Brooke Gayler will captain Mater Dei.
Kooringal were dominant in the pool stages while Mater Dei are coming into the final off a 7-0 semi final win over Mount Austin.
