Morell wins on penalty kicks, 4-3.
The Morell Strikers were on the losing end of a 2-0 score against R.C. United last year but would not be out done two years in a row.
Morell were three minutes away from victory when Chantal Gallant scored for United to send the match into extra time. Chloe MacKinnon had given the Strikers an early lead 12 minutes into the game.
In the first overtime, MacKinnon got her second of the game but only to have the match tied by Beth MacLean. The second overtime did not produce a winner so the match was decided on a penalty shootout.
With both teams missing two of five penalties the contest was decided on the first sudden death penalty kick when Morell keeper Pam Anderson guessed right and made a fine save to give her team the championship trophy.
