The final (a repeat of 2014) saw plenty of end to end play, both teams hitting the post and cross bar at one stage or another. At Half time the score was 3:2 in Redlands favour, Stanton missed a couple of shots at the beginning of the second half whilst Redlands converted all their attacks, once the lead was established Redlands began to relax and play some nice lacrosse, easing to an 8:4 win.
