Meanwhile, a Danica Urlich-Beech hat-trick fired Hibiscus Coast into the final with a 3-1 win against Manukau United at Stanmore Bay Park.

United opened the scoring through Joyce Barroso after 26 minutes but Coast levelled before half-time and then took control in the second spell.

Coast have won this year’s NRF Women’s Championship and remain unbeaten in NRF competitions.

Reaching the final continues an outstanding year for the Hibiscus Coast club, with the men’s first team winning the Lotto NRFL second division, and their reserves reaching the final of the NRF Men’s Federation Cup.
