The STFA under 14 Girls Team played Highlands following the u12s and played out a 1-1 draw.

This was because three of the u14s had to leave at half time as they had to be in Nowra.
They trained with the Southern side, who are preparing to play in the State Championships in the upcoming school holidays.
The u12 girls gave a good account of themselves and it was u12 player Lilly Skelly who provide the side's only goal in the u14s' one all draw.
The STFA were extremely proud of everyone's efforts.
