Written by Daramalan on the
Six Daramalan students played in the ACT U/18 Youth Girls team winning the NSW/ACT AFL U/18 Youth Girls State Cup defeating Sydney Harbour 3-5 23 points to 2-10 22 points. The State Championships were played on the NSW Central Coast in Bateau Bay.
To win through to the Grand Final, the ACT team defeated the Hunter Valley Central Coast and drew with the favoured Riverina team.
In a Grand Final for the ages against Sydney Harbour, a draw at full time led to extra time. After ten minutes of extra time both teams were still locked together. The Final then went to Golden Point time with the ACT emerging winners by one point in a most memorable game.
This is the first time the ACT has won the NSW/ACT State Cup.
