Central Coast Mariners' incredible pursuit of a treble is complete after they claimed a second successive A-League Men championship with a dramatic 3-1 extra-time win over Melbourne Victory.

The Mariners' quest for an ALM championship looked dead and buried with Victory leading courtesy of a Jason Geria strike as the 90th minute ticked by at Gosford's Industree Group Stadium on Saturday.

But substitute Ryan Edmondson popped up in the 91st minute to square things up and send the grand final into extra-time.

Teenager Miguel Di Pizio scored seven minutes into extra-time before Edmondson added his second in the dying moments to clinch the treble for Mariners coach Mark Jackson.

The Central Coast's win condemned Victory boss Tony Popovic to his fifth defeat in five attempts as a coach in a grand final.
