Echuca Primary (208) School’s girls soccer team will play in the State Soccer Championships in Melbourne today.
Echuca Primary (208) School under 12s girls soccer team will attend the State Soccer Championships in Melbourne today following success at the regional and district games in Swan Hill and Bendigo.
The girls were regional champions in Swan Hill after they defeated Woodend Primary, 3-1.
They also won the Bendigo zone competition following victory against Echuca East Primary (2-0) in the final.
Team manager Carmel O’Connell said the girls were grateful to have Darryl Brown as their coach.
Brown is involved with Moama-Echuca’s Border Raiders Soccer Association and has coached the girls sides to victory in the past.
‘‘We are very happy to have Darryl with us,’’ O’Connell said.
‘‘The link he brings to this team is so important.
‘‘He aims to eventually get some of these girls involved in club competition.’’
Despite not playing soccer outside of their school competition, Brown said he was proud of how far the team had come.
‘‘They just love soccer,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s all about the guts and determination.’’
Team member Tayla Ramsay, 12, said she loved the team aspect of the game.
‘‘We all share the ball and no-one hogs it,’’ she said.
‘‘We always encourage each other.’’
‘‘We have a good team and just work well together,’’ Holly Davidson, 12, said.
‘‘I love soccer, it’s a really fun sport.’’
Maddy Huismann, 12, suggested it was all about being modest.
‘‘We never think that anyone is better than anyone else,’’ she said.
‘‘We treat each other as equals.’’
