SAINT Columba Anglican School won every game along the way to qualifying for the final of the Hunter Region Independent School's touch football tournament earlier this month.
Unfortunately for the team, they couldn't quite get the job done as Hunter Valley Grammar School proved too good in a 3-1 result.
Coach Dane Dickson said while it was disappointing not to finish the job, it remained a pleasing result.
"Our goal was to play in the final given it would be most girls' final year at this tournament," he said.
"Their quality of play at times exceeded expectations and was pleasing to see them implement what they had worked hard at, at training."
Dickson said the team was led well through the middle with Hannah Jones playing a strong running game and Georgia Mitchell setting up some great tries.
"Jasmine Hone showed great experience and leadership and Jessica Eggert and Ayva Eames finished off some great plays scoring on the wings."
The boys team were also competitive in all games winning two from three pool games before a narrow loss in the quarter final and playoffs resulted in a respectable seventh place finish.
