Grand fi­nal win­ners in Echuca

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

The YMBA Rep­re­sen­ta­tive sea­son for 2018/2019 started this week­end with 10 teams rep­re­sent­ing the lo­cal club at the Echuca Ju­nior tour­na­ment.

All teams per­formed well with the U12 Girls reach­ing the U12 Grand Fi­nal, the U16 Girls reach­ing the U16 Div 2 Grand Fi­nal and the U18 Boys reach­ing the U18 Div 2 Grand Fi­nal.

It was the U12 girls who came home with the ti­tle, win­ning their grand fi­nal con­vinc­ingly against Echuca 30-18.

These lit­tle pocket rock­ets went through the tour­na­ment un­de­feated, de­feat­ing Echuca, Rochester and Wodonga to pave their way to the grand fi­nal.

Coached by Christy Ibrahim, the team con­sist- ed of Amelia Fraser, Abbey Ibrahim, Mil­lie Dodd, Char­lotte Woos­nam, Crys­tal Holdsworth, Kiera Free­man, Ebony Chap­man and Scar­lett Mullavey. The 16 Girls and U18 Boys also went through the rounds un­de­feated, show­ing that they will be teams to watch in the fu­ture.

Their grand fi­nal hopes were dashed though, with the girls be­ing out­played by a pol­ished Echuca team and the boys be­ing out­shot by a sharp Wodonga team who were on song with a 3-pointer frenzy.

Well done to all teams. Un­for­tu­nately all rep teams will now have to wait un­til the Wan­garatta Tour­na­ment in early Novem­ber to play due to the Mary­bor­ough Tour­na­ment, which was to be held on Oc­to­ber 12,13 and 14, be­ing can­celled. B Grade
