Deniliquin primary schools dominated the annual Paul Kelly Cup competition on Friday.
The Western Riverina round-robin was played at Deniliquin’s Hardinge St Oval with nine girls and 16 boys teams competing.
In the girls’ section, Deni South, St Michael’s and Deni North all took part but it was Edward Public School which booked a spot in the next round of the statewide competition.
South dominated the boys’ section, defeating a combined Jerilderie-Berrigan team in the grand final.
The day was organised by AFL NSW/ACT coordinator Jack Bradley with the assistance of Deniliquin High School students who umpired the games.
‘‘It was a great day and all the games were played in the right spirit,’’ Mr Bradley said.
‘‘We were happy to have so many teams enter and the weather was kind to us as well.
‘‘Teams travelled from as far as Balranald, Jerilderie, Berrigan, Finley and Moama to play.’’
The next round of the Paul Kelly Cup for Edward and South is the Southern NSW finals to be played at Wagga on June 26.
From there the winners will contest the state finals at the GWS Giants’ home ground.
