The Maitland Saints made their first AFL Hunter Central Coast Women's grand final with a thrilling three point win over Wyong Lakes on the weekend.
The Saints prevailed 2.9-21 to 2.6-18 in wet and windy conditions virtually impossible against the wind.
They will face competition heavyweights Newcastle City in the grand final after the Blues defeated minor premiers Killarney Vale 5.4-34 to 3.9-27 at Adelaide Street Oval at Tumbi Umbi.
The Saints and Blues last met in round one when Maitland won 4.6-30 to 3.6-24.
Maitland's preliminary final was switched to Singleton's Rose Point Park after heavy rain forced the closure of Newcastle No.1 Sportsground.
Kicking against the wind in the opening term Maitland managed two points to Wyong's one goal two but the two behinds would prove invaluable in the final outcome.
Star forward Sarah Burns kicked Maitland's first goal in the second term to give the Saints a 1.5-11 to 1.2-8 after they kept the Magpies scoreless for the quarter.
The Magpies established at seven point lead at the final break keeping the Saints scoreless and kicking one goal four.
Skyla Dunn kicked Maitland's second as Saints ran home winners in the final term.
