Australia Continues Dominant Display

first_imgHeading into the final day, Australia had already won three divisions – the 18’s Girls, 20’s Girls and 20’s Boys – after winning the first two games of each respective series. And they didn’t slow down, winning the third and final game in each of these divisions on Sunday. But the most important game of the day saw the Australian 18’s Boys take on New Zealand at 12.15pm. With the series locked up at one game apiece and with both earlier games only being decided by one touchdown, the first in a drop-off and the second in the dying seconds of the game, it was always going to be a tight encounter. And it lived up to expectations, with New Zealand eventually running out 8-7 winners to take the series. The Australian boys dug deep and gave it everything they had, and despite the loss were gallant in defeat and did Australia proud. Australian 18’s Boys captain, Oscar Sanft, was awarded the Troy Malcolm award at a ceremony after the games, while Australian 20’s Girls player, Kirsty Quince, was given the Roxy Winder award. 2011 Youth Trans Tasman results18’s GirlsAustralia 7 defeated New Zealand 3Australia 8 defeated New Zealand 2Australia 12 defeated New Zealand 518’s BoysAustralia 10 defeated by New Zealand 11Australia 8 defeated New Zealand 7Australia 7 defeated by New Zealand 820’s GirlsAustralia 13 defeated New Zealand 2Australia 9 defeated New Zealand 2Australia 16 defeated New Zealand 320’s BoysAustralia 7 defeated New Zealand 6Australia 12 defeated New Zealand 6Australia 10 defeated New Zealand 7For all of the match reports, tour diaries and latest information, please head to the series website:
