Girls AFL 9s – State Finals

On Wednesday September 6th, eleven Greenvale PS students competed in AFL Victoria’s 9s State Finals.

In sometimes wet and windy conditions the girls were placed in a tough pool of team, playing against Wedge Park PS, St Martins of Tours, Christ the Priest PS and Williamstown North PS.
This pool of teams included last year’s winners and runners up of this competition.

Greenvale started off strongly with a comfortable victory against Wedge Park PS.
Following this they played a strong contest against Christ the Priest PS but were behind early kicking against the breeze. When we had the wind in the second half we started to get goals on the scoreboard but unfortunately turnovers proved too costly.
The final two games went right down to the wire in exciting and challenging contests. These finished with a draw against Williamstown North and a one point nail biter against St Martins of Tours.

Well done to all of the girls involved throughout the district, regional and state levels of competition. Your success is a credit to your hard work and dedication and I can’t wait to see what you will achieve in the remainder of 2017.
