Privitelli proud after Victory goes back-to-back

Melbourne Victory captain Lia Privitelli was proud of her team after winning the Liberty A-League Championship on Sunday.

Goals from Amy Jackson and Catherine Zimmerman helped Victory to a 2-1 win over Sydney FC in the Grand Final at Jubilee Stadium.

Goalkeeper Casey Dumont was named player of the match after an instrumental performance that featured several excellent saves.

Privitelli, captain in place of the injured Kayla Morrison, was full of praise for her team.

“I couldn’t be prouder of this bunch of girls. We’ve had a really, really tough season and we did it,” she told 10 Bold.

“I think Sydney were out here for revenge and we were out here for back-to-back.

“To be honest they probably had the better of us in the first half and we knew we had to come out stronger and we did and we scored those goals and I couldn’t be prouder of this team and this Club.”

Dumont made several good stops, especially in the first half, and Privitelli lauded the goalkeeper.

“She’s been awesome for us all year and probably without her we wouldn’t be in the position we’re in so full credit to Casey,” she said.

“She puts her body on the line week in and week out for us.”
