Wallsend Football Club (14 Years) and Football Mid North Coast (12 Years) Named 2017 Telstra State SAP Champions for Girls
Wallsend Football Club claimed the Telstra State SAP Champions title in the 14 Years with only going down in one match out of the tournament, whilst Football Mid North Coast was undefeated in the 12 Years.
Wallsend FC had been a standout across the three-day tournament in the 14 Years, netting 18 goals and never looking in doubt with only going down once in the final day of the championships 2-0 against Football Mid North Coast.
Striker Sophie MacDonald was lethal for Wallsend scoring 10 goals out of the seven games.
In the 12 Years, it was looking to be a tight contest between four of the teams, however, Football Mid North Coast held strong on the final day winning both of their final matches.
Mid North Coast had the best defense by far in the competition with not conceding any goals throughout the three days.
Northern NSW’s Head of the Technical Panel, Ryan Campbell, said Wallsend (in the 14s) and Mid North Coast (in the 12s) were clear standouts across the three days.
“Overall, both of the teams played extremely well as a team across the tournament and were clear standouts,” Campbell said.
“However, these championships are all about the opportunity for players test themselves against fellow Northern NSW players.”
“The Championships give Northern NSW’s Technical Panel a valuable opportunity to identify talented players who possess the ability to progress to the next level in their playing career,” Campbell concluded.
