The under 17 girls played with confidence and keenness against the Atherton side, taking home the grand final 48-nil.

Meanwhile, the under 16 boys kept their winning streak going, securing the minor premiership against Edmonton.

Mareeba Junior Rugby League president Raymond Srhoj said both teams made their town and club proud and he looked forward to seeing them continue their winning streaks into the next season.

“It’s moving to watch these kids grow up and play against these bigger teams,” he said.

“A few of those girls I have coached a number of times and I am so proud of them, and I love watching them grow and still love the game of football.”

The under 16 boys are set to play this Saturday against Cairns Brothers at Mann Street around 1pm.

Locals are encouraged to make the trip down the hill to support them as they head into the finals.
