WAUCHOPE proved their victory over Tacking Point Thunder Cougars two weeks ago was no fluke when they repeated the dose to claim the Port Macquarie-Hastings Hockey Association B-grade men's title on Saturday.
The Wolverines led early before the Cougars appeared destined to avenge their loss to Port City in last year's grand final.
But Luke Hough had other ideas with his second half of extra time strike proving enough to put Wauchope in front for good.
Captain Glen Pursehouse was satisfied with the effort of his team who all performed their individual roles almost perfectly.
"We were lucky to net one in the second lot of extra time which was enough to take the trophy," he said.
"Luke Hough scored the winner, but I was very happy with the defence. Shaun John did a great job in goals and without him it could have quite easily gone the other way."
The loss on grand final day was only the Cougars third defeat all season with two of those coming against Wauchope.
"Everyone pulled their weight; everyone did their job which is what made it so special," Pursehouse said.
"It's difficult to pick a player of the match because everyone stepped up and played not only their natural game but well and truly above themselves and held their own."
The captain admitted beating the team who had set the pace made the premiership win more satisfying.
"Of course; they've been the benchmark team all year," he said.
