Many young district footballers played in the Central Murray Storm under 15s team that won division two in the V/Line Cup this week.
The team won all three of its matches including the final, meaning it will play in division one next year.
The Storm’s first game was on Sunday afternoon in Bendigo, resulting in a 42-point win over Bendigo 1.
After beating the Gippsland Power 2 side on Monday afternoon, the team qualified to play in Wednesday’s grand final.
The Central Murray team fought hard in the final at Princes Park Oval 1 to beat Hampden by 45 points.
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’’.
‘‘It was a great experience for the girls and they all really enjoyed it.’’
Trophies were presented to the top three performing girls, with Echuca representatives Alana Long placing second, Alyx Glanville finishing third, with Kelly Shotton not far behind.
Shotton was also selected for the girls Victoria Country Team, a team for the best players in the state.
