Peel Thunder's hopes of making it to their third straight WAFLW premiership are over after suffering a five point loss to Swan Districts at Lane Group Stadium on Sunday.

It was a 2021 Grand Final rematch but this time it was the Swans who prevailed 4.5 (29) to 5.4 (34).

Thunder coach Steve Markham said the Swans were just too good.

"The Swans were very good on the day, we just didn't take our opportunities," he said.

Kira Phillips booted two goals for Peel while Sabreena Duffy collected 26 disposals and Ella Roberts 24.

Markham said while the loss was disappointing he's still proud of the way his side has played over the season.

"I'm always proud of the girls, they've had a really good season," he said.

"Really disappointed obviously not to go any further."

Peel's under 18s women's side will play in a preliminary final against South Fremantle in the Rogers Cup competition on Sunday, June 26 at Revo Fitness Stadium.
