Keegan Harding didn't go into Saturday's men's super series touch football grand final expecting to win, in fact he thought "we were gonna get pumped."
But that's exactly what happened for his Captain America side as they won 5-3.
"We ended up having a few players out through injury and being away, so I thought they were gonna put a number on us," Harding said of the expectations going into the game.
"We ended up finishing the season first, but at the end of the year we had two forfeits against us and then last week we had the bye, so we hadn't played a game for about four weeks."
Harding's side went try-for-try against the opposing Superman team to the point where it was tied at three-all going into the final few minutes of the match.
But Captain America pulled out a couple of late tries to take the lead and held on for the victory.
"We defended really well, a lot of our young players especially," Harding added.
"We were all pretty happy but we were more surprised.
"The younger boys were quite happy because we had about three or four who hadn't played in a grand final before, but we weren't expecting to win."
Harding was also named MVP of the match.
Over on the women's side, it was the Black Panther team who came out victorious 5-3 in the super series against the Wolverines.
Panther's co-captain Lauren Williams said the main goal going into the game was just to play hard and enjoy themselves against a team they hadn't beat all year.
"I don't know what it was, possibly the excitement," Williams said on what got them over the line.
"We scored early on and the positivity towards each other was the main thing.
"The communication the girls had was great and that's something Tegan (Dray) and I had been working on all season was to communicate in a positive way and that finally kicked into gear."
"The girls were pretty stoked.
"When you don't win against a team all season and then go into the grand final as underdogs it's very satisfying to come out on top."
Ava Cole was named MVP of the match.
