Young Ramettes flying Muswellbrook flag

IN a massive coup for the Muswellbrook and District Junior Rugby League Football Club, three girls’ teams will vie for titles in 2017.

The trio of sides claimed victory at Olympic Park last Friday night, to not only move through to the deciders in their respective age divisions but also earn the right to host the fixtures at Muswellbrook on August 25.

“It isn’t a bad effort, considering it’s their first ‘real’ year in the league tag competition,” publicity officer Michelle Williams said.

“In 2016, they only played a short eight-week trial.

“So, everyone is very proud of what they’ve achieved.”

The Muswellbrook RSL Club-sponsored under-12 outfit beat the Singleton Greyhounds 24-0 to secure a grand final spot.

The Happy Tooth under-14 girls accounted for the Greyhounds 24-18, propelling them into their first-ever decider.

The Muswellbrook Race Club under-16 squad prevailed in a thriller.

The match went into golden point extra-time, but the Ramettes came away with a 22-18 triumph.

Daisy Durham scored the winner in the dying stages of the encounter.
