The Corner Brook Women's Soccer League crowned its 2018 league champions Wednesday at the Wellington Street Complex in Corner Brook.

Clancy's, the league's Stephenville representative, downed Veitch's in a hotly contested match that went to penalty kick after finishing regular time tied at 1-1. The teams then went through a pair of ten minute overtimes before heading to kicks.

There, Clancy's scored three times to Veitch's once to claim the 3-1 victory and the coveted champions trophy.

Clancy's opened the scoring at the 23rd minute when Olivia Henley hit the back of Veitch's goal. That lead lasted until the 44th minute when Laura Furlong tied things up.
