The Thunderbirds W2 team have qualified for the finals of the Football South Coast Women's Division 2 competition after a 6-1 win over Coledale at Gibson Park on Wednesday night.
Thirroul will now take on Kiama in Sunday's elimination semi-final after Kiama beat Wests Illawarra 3-0 at Unanderra Oval on Wednesday night.
The two results forced officials to reach for their calculators to determine which team had finished the regular season in fourth place as Thirroul and Wests were level on 32 competition points and had an identical goal difference of +18.
However, the Thunderbirds' season remains alive as they scored 39 goal to 32 by Wests.
The Thunderbirds play Kiama in the elimination semi-final at 11.45am Sunday at Ocean Park, Woonona, so get along and support the team if you can.
