The Macleay Valley Rangers dominated the Women's Northern League regular season and finished the competition undefeated.
However, Rangers player-coach Emma Tamblyn acknowledges the side faces its biggest challenge when they battle Port United in a major semi-final this Saturday.
The Rangers cruised to a 4-0 victory in their only meeting this year, but Tamblyn is predicting a more difficult afternoon.
"I definitely think it is going to be a tougher challenge this time," Tamblyn told the Argus.
"I am assuming they will come out a lot stronger after last time, they will have a better understanding of our style.
"Every team is always better the second time you play them and it's finals time so they will want to perform well.
"We just have to want it more than them."
While Tamblyn admits United boast a talented midfield and have threats up front, she believes her side needs to stick to their own game plan and they will come out on top.
"We just need to play good football, play our style and knock the ball around," Tamblyn said.
"We have worked hard all season and I know we are a good football side so we just need to put it together on Saturday and we will be through to the grand final."
The Rangers had a bye for the opening weekend of the finals series and had a friendly contest against the club's Under-16s side to get a run under their belts.
Saturday's major semi-final kicks off at 5pm at Optus Park in Kempsey.
