On Sunday July 23, a team of local soccer club girls competed at the Cowra girls gala day.

The girls played four games on the day against teams from Cowra, Young, Wagga and Canberra. Game one they went down 0-1 to Cowra, the second was a draw 1-1 against Wagga, the third against Young was also a draw 2-2 and the fourth game was versus Canberra where the girls won 2-0.

The girls put in 110% effort all day.

A big thank you to Jen Bell for her organising skills and to Gav Johnson for coaching the team. 

Also thank you to all the parents, the girls had a great time and gained valuable confidence and experience.
