Lim, 21, said: “The coaches then told us how to improve ourselves individually and as a team… As the season progressed, we caught on to each other’s strengths and played to these strengths. Today’s game was the best we’ve had working together as a team.”
In the final at Our Tampines Hub, the Dolphins blazed to a 11-7 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. Lim and fellow defender Yew Shu Ning made several key interceptions while goal shooter Lee Pei Shan kept her cool under pressure from Stingrays goalkeeper Reena Divya Manogaran to convert 47 of 54 attempts.
Stingrays vice-captain Toh Kai Wei paid tribute to her teammates for their fighting spirit, saying: “I’m very happy with how they performed today, they went for every loose ball and it was a good fight.”
Fier Orcas, making their return to the NSL after four years, finished third after beating Mission Mannas 58-47 in the third-place play-off.metasports
