Inaugural U16 and U18 Teenage Girls’ finals


Sunday at Mike Carney Toyota Park saw the best two teams left in the U16 and U18 girls competition battle it out for a shot at the Inaugural Teenage Girl’s Premiership. The U16s was contested between North Ward Blue and Charters Towers, the U18s was contested between Teachers West and Charters Towers as well. Once again, a big thank you to all girls who have participated throughout the year in both grades with a total of 11 teams in their first year. We look forward to seeing all players have a crack in the Teenage 7’s tournament (26th and 27th October) and return next year for another year of rugby!


Under 16 Girls…

The inaugural U16 grand final took place between the two best sides in the competition. North Ward are known for bringing trademark physicality into their matches and whilst Charters Towers lacked some size, they made it up in speed and determination. The match was a close encounter for the first half with both teams going blow for blow, try for try. After half time, the Bullettes started to pull away from the North Ward girls scoring some wonderful tries to put North Ward on the back foot. The final score was 29 points to 12, with Charters Towers Bullettes taking out the win.

Charter Towers – Tries: Anjeleah Corrigan 2, Crystal-lee Walsh 2, Neeve Gallagher 1. Conversions: Crystal-Lee Walsh 1, Shakiah Douglas 1.

Under 18 Girls…

The Girls U18 competition had some blockbuster games throughout the year and yesterdays game was no different with Charters Towers taking on Teachers West for premiership glory. Both sides were evenly matched, both in attack and in defence. It was Teachers who raced out to the lead scoring two early tries to kickstart their confidence and shift the momentum in their favour. The two early tries to Teachers made the difference at the end of the day with teams going try for try late in the first half and throughout the second. The final score finished with Teachers West claiming the inaugural U18 girl’s premiership 34 points to 28.
