EVEN extra time and an opportunity to pot the match-winning point did not produce a result as the Port Moresby rugby league women’s grand final on Saturday between Paga Panthers and Souths finished a 6-6 draw.
The PRL board could not declare a winner under its competition rules and instead split the cash prize between the finalists.
After competitive final a draw was a fair result.
The women’s grand final was also not allowed more time as the men’s final between Royals and Hawks would have been affected.
The PRL board decided to split the women’s cash prize between  the Panthers and Souths but is yet to make a decision on who will be awarded the 2017 premiership.
Both sides put up their best performance but Paga appeared to be the better team on the day.
