Adelaide United Captain Isabel Hodgson was thrilled after the Reds made history by sealing its inaugural finals berth.

Adelaide recorded a dominant 3-0 win over Melbourne Victory to confirm its place in the top four with one round remaining of the regular season.

Fiona Worts scored a clinical hat-trick to lead the competition’s Golden Boot race with 13 goals.

Hodgson was absolutely delighted to have achieved its objective, but insisted their focus was continuing its momentum and make a genuine tilt for the Championship.

“Just so excited,” Hodgson said, speaking to Jarrod Walsh after the match.

“Obviously ticked a box, we’ve made finals but we’re not done yet.

“So we’ve got a long way to go and I’m really proud of the girls and all the fans for coming out for such a great cause and overall really happy.”

United recorded its ninth win of the campaign and third clean sheet of the season in front of 2,421 spectators.

The 25-year-old thanked fans for their support and attending the Pride Game.

“It’s just unbelievable, having everyone out there really helped us today,” she said.

“Seeing all the rainbow flags made me really proud.

“So great to be here, so great to be Adelaide United and let’s go to finals.”
