But competition powerhouse Joondalup claimed its second premiership in three seasons, winning by 402 runs on Sunday a disappointing end to a fairytale season for Gosnells.
Man of the Match Josh Inglis set up the win with a powerful double century equalling the highest individual WACA first grade score of 246.
Joondalup added 116 runs in just 12 overs in the morning to finish on an imposing 6-567, the highest team total in 36 years and the third highest team score in WACA first grade history.
Gosnells club president Ross Leipold said the Hawks toiled hard on a beautiful batting wicket but the combination of the promising young Inglis and a century by Clint Hinchcliffe set a massive and very daunting total for the Gosnells side to chase.
�This was a task that had to be made in 85 overs and proved to be too hard,� he said.
�Matt Leipold batted well for the Hawks finishing on 58 not out.�
Leipold said it had been a remarkable season for Gosnells and to rise from 14th on the ladder before Christmas to the State�s premier cricket competition grand final was a great achievement.
�While the result did not go our way, the first grade side did the Gosnells Cricket Club proud,� he said.
