THE MULUWURRI Magpies have cemented themselves in history, winning the inaugural Tiwi Islands Football League women's premiership by a solitary point on Sunday.

Four goals from the Tapalinga Superstars' Shakayla Gardiner-Dunn weren't enough to get the Superstars over the line, with the Magpies coming from 16 points down at halftime to snatch the win, 8.2 (50) to 7.7 (49).

Jodie Palipuaminni was best on ground for the Magpies, while teammate Jess Stassi booted three goals.

The competition is 100 per cent run by women, and supported by investment from the Australian Sports Commission, the National Indigenous Australians Agency and AFLNT.

The comp had incredible uptake in its first season, with more than 300 women taking to the field across the season.

"Our first training session we had over 100 girls turn up, the competition is becoming huge, and this season has been amazing for the Islands," Ranku Eagles player Victoria Canning said.

"It’s a close-knit small community, it’s like a religion here, everyone gets around it on a footy day the whole community comes down to watch the women play."

The atmosphere at the ground was electric, so check out the best photos from the day in the gallery below.
