PBC Clean sweep schools

The Gold Coast’s Palm Beach-Currumbin State High School capped off another successful season with another title added to their collection yesterday.

In a big week for the ‘Reds’, they took on second placed Narangba Valley State High School in the Schools of Excellence Cup Junior Grand Final at Palm Beach, and will travel to Cairns tomorrow to continue their push to represent Queensland at the AFL Northern States Cup in September.

Both teams lined up reasonably similar in size, but from the siren the tone was set by PBC, kicking five unanswered goals in the first quarter.

Sam Davidson was busy early, and combined well with eventual Best-On-Ground medallist Brodie Foster to push forward and create scoring opportunities for PBC.

Narangba Valley ‘Vipers’ were far from embarrassed, showing their grit and determination in defence, continually rebounding PBC’s attack as the boys tired in the 27 degree heat.

Final scores saw PBC convincing winners 10.14.74 to Vipers 1.2.8.

This is Palm Beach-Currumbin’s fourth Junior Excellence title in a row.

Tomorrow they fly to Cairns to take on Gold Coast SUNS Cup champions St Augustine’s College at Cazaly’s Stadium at 1:45pm.

The winenr will progress to qualify for the AFL Northern States Cup; a competition showcasing the best Under 14 talent from New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, the Northern Territory and Queensland.

The Northern States Cup will be held in Sydney from 20th-22nd September, where Queensland will be vying for their fifth title in six years.
