Echuca Green claimed a 3-2 victory in the under 13s Goulburn Valley Hockey Association grand final against the Shepparton Strikers on Saturday.
In glorious conditions, Echuca started well and maintained most of the possession in the opening 20 minutes.
However Echuca was unable to capitalise on its efforts, allowing Strikers to hold a 2-0 lead at the major break.
Juancho Mckenzie grasped Echuca’s first goal with a fiery strike from the top of the circle.
After enduring an anxious period — defending and surviving four penalty corners — Connor Holland regained the momentum for Echuca.
Echuca scored an equaliser late in the game, which was closely followed by a nail-biting, match-winning goal from Harrison Cooke with less than 45 second remaining.
The women’s side defeated Strikers 3-1, with the men dominating their match against SYC, 9-0.
