Mater Dei will take on rival catholic college Kildare in the final of the Wagga Open Girls AFL School Cup, after the pair emerged as the top two from a gala day at Robertson Oval on Friday.
MDCC was the standout, completing an unbeaten round-robin tournament. Led by Issy Cunningham and Georgia Holbrook, they enjoyed wins against Kooringal High, Wagga High and The Riverina Anglican College, as well as Kildare.
Kildare were well served by Eliza Kelly, Lucy Anderson, Elly Ashcroft and Georgia Hallam as they claimed three wins but went down three goals to none to MDCC. The schools will meet in the final on May 29, ahead of the Carroll Cup decider.
Others to shine were Ally Morphett for Wagga High, who had two wins, and TRAC's Ruby Alchin.
"Early in the day it was a little bit wet but Robertson Oval dried out well and the skills really improved," AFL development coordinator Ben Walsh said.
"The standard has definitely strengthened (in recent years) and the skill level has gone up. Pretty much all the girls involved now have been involved in youth girls."
