Boys battle for state honours

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - SPORT -

BLACK­TOWN In­ter­na­tional Sportspark hosted 13 re­gional teams for the PSSA Aus­tralian Foot­ball State Car­ni­val last week.

The three-day com­pe­ti­tion served a dual pur­pose with an over­all win­ning team crowned and play­ers se­lected for the state team.

A to­tal of 286 boys com­peted for the right to rep­re­sent NSW at the School Sport Australia Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Gee­long in July, with 23 se­lected for the NSW Blue Pups.

The State Car­ni­val it­self was won by Mackil­lop af­ter they de­feated Rive­rina in the fi­nal on Thurs­day.

“It was a tremen­dous suc­cess. The boys played in bril­liant weather on the best fa­cil­ity that NSW has to of­fer in terms of AFL,” NSW PSSA Aus­tralian foot­ball manager Scott Stavely said.
