NSW JUNIOR STATE CUP (9’s-11’s): DAY 2 WRAP
The tournament’s first four Champions have been crowned on day two of the 2021 NSW Junior State Cup (9’s-11’s).
The pristine conditions undoubtedly set the tone for today’s matches – the high standard of Oztag proved testament to all teams’ preparation and commitment.
Today’s atmosphere was a product of teams consistently putting on a show for the sidelines. The energy was contagious and the skill, remarkable.
The greatest upset of the day took place when the East Hills Boys 11’s beat the two-year, undefeated reigning champions, Cronulla in the Division one Grand Final.
East Hills were 3-0 down and fought back to even the scores right before the full-time buzzer, the 3-all draw sending them into an exhilarating drop-off decider.
Also consisting of tight games was the Boys 10’s Division one. With such an even playing field, all top eight qualifying teams were capable of taking out the title.
The Grand Final, livestreamed on Field one was tied up at 3-all come full-time. But after a nail-biting 2-1 extra time, Central Coast came away with the win – defeating last year’s premiers, Baulkham Hills.
Below are the results for the Boys 9’s, Boys 10’s Div 1 and Boys 11’s Finals at the 2021 NSW Junior State Cup. Congratulations to all Champions.
