Bletchington Public School finished runners-up in the PSSA Touch Football Knockout in Parramatta on Monday, landing second-place in the state-wide 370-school competition.
Eight winners of regional play-offs ran onto the field in Parramatta, and Bletchington defeated King Street Public School 9-4 in their first match of the day.
They then defeated Umina 8-4 to qualify for the grand final, cementing their place in the top two for the state.
The grand final was between Bletchington and South Wagga Primary School, who took the crown with an 11-6 victory.
Bletchinton coach Austen Logan said the side had been “amazing” in winning eight games in a row to make the final.
“We knew they would all be good sides going into the day, we wanted to win the first game and anything more than that was a bonus,” Logan said.
He was full of praise for his charges, saying they were all “so easy to coach” and put extraordinary effort into the campaign.
