Wounded Brisbane forward Dakota Davidson kicked two last-quarter goals to help deliver the Lions a stunning 17-point AFLW grand final victory over North Melbourne.

After trailing by seven points at three-quarter time, the Lions were able to avenge last year's defeat in the decider against Melbourne by storming home to win 7.2 (44) to 4.3 (27) for their second AFLW premiership.

Davidson was under an injury cloud all week after damaging a knee in the preliminary final win over Geelong, but stepped up when it mattered on Sunday after struggling for impact in the first three quarters.

The 24-year-old made no mistake twice in the final term after taking two big marks, converting both her set shots to swing the match in Brisbane's favour.

'That was unreal, wasn't it?' Davidson told the Seven Network.

'That fightback from the girls in that last quarter. It's unbelievable. Unbelievable feeling.

'The ball wasn't near me in the first three-quarters.

'(Lions coach) Craig (Starcevich) always says it's all about moments, so I'm glad I took my two moments.'
