Macquarie Football (12’s Division) and Emerging Jet 10’s (11’s Division) Named 2017 State Champions

Macquarie Football claimed the title of State Champions in the 12’s division with two Rounds to play at the Telstra State Championships on Sunday, whilst the Emerging Jets 10 Years bounced back from a poor start on Friday night to claim the title of State Champions in the 11’s division.

Macquarie were strong across the three-day tournament, taking the lead early and never really looking in doubt. Hunter Valley and NNSW Select SAP had kept pace by the end of Day Two, but both failed to keep the momentum on the final day.

Winger Anthony Tan and Striker Brayden Foster were lethal for Macquarie, Tan scoring six goals in seven games, and Foster with four.

In the 11’s division, the Emerging Jets took a while to take off, but once they hit their straps they were unstoppable.

They lost the first match against NNSW Newcastle SAP 2-0, and were then unlucky against Macquarie in a 2-2 draw.

But with the tough fixtures out of the way, they started with a tidy 3-1 win on Saturday and didn’t drop any points for the remaining five fixtures.

It’s still too close to call a winner after 34 games played at the end of Day 2 in the Telstra State Championships for Boys, though leaders have emerged from the pack in both divisions, with NNSW Newcastle SAP, Emerging Jets 10’s and NNSW Select SAP within a point of each other in the 11’s, and Hunter Valley and Macquarie leading the group in the 12’s.

It was a day of mixed fortunes for the Country squads, who joined the Metro squads this morning having travelled to Newcastle on Friday Night. Northern Inland and North Coast struggled in both divisions, but played some great football and both grew in confidence as the day went on.

Impressively, Northern Inland 12’s took out the Jets in the last game of the night, winning 5-3 and picking up their first points of the day.

NNSW Select Sap, made up of Football Far North Coast players and Emerging Jets’, were keen to make up for lost time, and won their first three matches convincingly in the 11’s, whilst the 12’s dropped their only points in a draw to North Coast.

However, the spotlight belongs to Metro squads. Emerging Jets 10’s capped off an impressive day with a dominating 11-0 win over North Coast 11’s.

They lead the table on 10 points, followed by NNSW Select SAP and NNSW Newcastle SAP on 9 points each.

In the 12’s, Hunter Valley and NNSW Select SAP are on 10 points each, though Select has a game in hand heading into Day 3 of the tournament.

The first game kicks off at 8:30am tomorrow, and the awards ceremony will conclude the 3 Day event with a scheduled start time of 6:35pm.

Day One – Friday 18th August


Official Points Tables Day One

Photos Day One

The Telstra State Championships for Boys kicked off at Speers Point today, with the four Metro squads playing two games each in cold windy conditions. They will be joined by the remaining country squads in the morning.

The Telstra State Championships provides SAP Metro and Country squads in the 11s and 12s divisions the opportunity to gauge their development against the best in the state. NNSWF Technical Director Michael Browne was pleased with the standard of day one, and is looking for more of the same tomorrow “Tonight was obviously the four metro teams, it’s good to get the Championships started and we’re looking forward to seeing the Country boys in action tomorrow. We’ve had some very entertaining games so far and hopefully we’ll see the same tomorrow.”

“For the country zones we pick a squad of the U12 age group, so we’ll be looking at all the country zones to select that squad, but more importantly it’s a good opportunity to benchmark the U11 and U12 country boys against the metro boys.”

The Emerging Jets asserted their dominance early in the 12’s division, putting two unanswered goals past Newcastle SAP, followed by a narrow 2-1 win against Macquarie. Hunter Valley will be looking to continue their momentum in the morning, having bounced back from a 2-0 defeat to Macquarie to defeat NNSWF Newcastle SAP 5-2.

In the 11’s division, NNSW Newcastle SAP were the standouts, beating 10’s Emerging Jets 2-0 and Hunter Valley 1-o to sit atop of the table overnight.
