There was no feeling of grief when the extra time final whistle was heard by Atlas in their grand final against minor premiers Parkside A.
Just pure elation as Atlas backed up last season's triumph and achieved their first ever repeat premiership in their 4-1 victory on Saturday.
Atlas were on the back foot early as Parkside scored the first goal and finished the first half 1-0 up.
Atlas captain Will Cook said they made some technical changes in the sheds.
"We changed up our formation a bit and worked on putting more bodies in the midfield," Cook said.
Atlas finally struck back with a goal in the 60th minute and hung on until full time to take the game into extra time at 1-1.
Cook said Atlas then capitalised on an early chance.
"We jumped on a loose ball and scored a scrappy goal in the first half of extra time to be up 2-1," he said.
"We just wanted to defend after the goal but then Dave Smith received a red card and then it was panic stations."
Despite Atlas playing with 10 men, Dean Kelley then hit a screamer from halfway with not many minutes left in extra time to have the score 3-1 and secure the premiership.
The final nail of the coffin was then hammered in with a last minute Atlas goal to end the scores at 4-1.
Cook said it was their goalkeeper Spencer Snelling that stepped up in the final.
"Our keeper kept us in the game, especially in the first half," Cook said.
Snelling was rewarded with player of the final.
Atlas striker Andrew Frahm was awarded the golden boot of the league.
