Hayley Arnold kicked a major in the fourth quarter to seal the win for the minor premiers.

Captain Bree Grentell said it was a great team effort but the Bulls' backline really stood tall in defence.

"It was a bit of a scrappy game from both sides and they really pushed us to our limits,” she said.

"I'm really proud of the girls and how hard they worked for it.

"I think it was our determination that proved the difference.

"We all knew as a team that we didn't want to walk away with a loss and we were going for our fifth straight premiership and we really wanted that.”

Arnold, Grentell, Hannah Burke and Tashina Ketchup were among Glenmore's best.
