Goal scorers included Echuca’s Darby Henderson and Izaac Johnson.
AFL Central Murray development manager Jamie Macri also made special mention of Mitchell Kemp and Moama’s Jeremy Pain.
‘‘I’m absolutely wrapt,’’ Macri said. ‘‘We had great support staff and very supportive parents.’’
The team lost its first two matches to finish in fifth place, but defeated the Western District Youth Girls team by an impressive 67 points.
Team coach David Pearson said it was a ‘‘great day’’.
