The Griffith Black and Whites have gone against the odds to take out the League Tag title at the Paul Kelly Knockout on Saturday night.
The team that was put together at the last minute proved to be too strong for the Leeton Greens in the final as they came away with a 20-4 victory.
The Greens were able to see off Yenda in their opening game of the League Tag side of the draw while the Black and Whites accounted for Darlington Point Coleambally.
The Panthers were able to make a fast start, with Lily-Belle Misiloi able to get over under the post inside the first five minutes of the final.
Hollie Penrith was able to extend the Black and Whites lead after she was able to get a grubber in behind the line and then win the footrace to score.
The Greens were able to half the margin heading into the halftime break after Kayla Frazer was able to step her way through the Black and Whites defence to see the margin sitting at 8-4 after the opening 15 minutes.
The Black and Whites were able to restore their advantage in the early stages of the second half, with Misiloi able to race up in the line to pull off an intercept and race away from the Leeton defence to score and with a successful conversion, they led by 10 points.
The icing was put on the cake with Beyonce Marela able to make a 70m break down the wing to secure the title with a 20-4 victory.
The two sides won't have to wait long to face off once again as Leeton is set to host the Black and Whites at Leeton No 1 Oval on the opening day of the competition on May 1.
