In the end, it was the co-hosts who faced each other in the final. Rockdale City Suns proved to be the best team as they not only defeated their local rivals Bankstown City, but also ended the tournament with 6 wins out of 6 games. Their goal difference was 17:0. With this win, they won their third Maso Cup title. They now lead the hall of fame ahead of Altona Magic, who has two trophies, and Bankstown City & Arncliffe Scots, who have one trophy.

To reach the final, Rockdale first destroyed Queanbeyan City 5:0 before facing Wollongong United in the semi-finals where they won by a lone goal. Bankstown celebrated two slim victories over Arncliffe Scots and the surprise of the tournament, Cringila Lions. The Lions from Cringila ended the group stage with the same amount of points as Bankstown and later eliminated holders Altona Magic in the quarter-finals.
