The Years 7 & 8 All Schools State Final saw the winners from each of the 17 regional qualifiers held around NSW in both male and female divisions descend on Parramatta’s Doyle Ground. To make it to the State Final is a difficult journey for schools who battle their local rivals to earn their spot on November 10 and chase the elusive title of best school in NSW.
The competition is played in a round robin format and after 4 round games the top 8 teams in each division advanced on to the quarter finals. In all 4 semi-finals the result went down to the wire with the winners victorious by no more than 2 touchdowns in every game. In the girls division, Kildare Catholic College went back to back defeating Tomaree High School in the final 2-0.
Player of the Final was Maddie Morton (Kildare). In the boys division, Kildare Catholic College took out the double defeating last year’s winners Hunter Sports High 8-1 in a dominant performance. Player of the final was Sam Macklan (Kildare).
