Albion Park coach Goran Trajceski has praised his players for digging deep after Sunday's draw with Bulli saw them book a spot in this year's Premier League finals.
The White Eagles finished the IPL's regular season in fifth position following a 1-all result at Terry Reserve. Albion Park, who had entered the game as underdogs, were first to score after 16 minutes through Cameron Morgan.
However, Bulli's Ben McDonald mustered an equaliser late in the first half, and that's how the score remained on Sunday.
Trajceski said it was an "amazing" performance by his side and it was great for them to make the finals.
"These boys deserve it. Over the last five or six weeks they've been outstanding. Especially today, we had a busted bench and the boys just pulled through in that heat against a very tough team. I'm very happy.
"And other results went our way as well. But we did it. Four weeks ago, people weren't giving us a chance and the boys did the job, mate."
