Mullum High’s u/16 Futsal team has won another championship. Photo supplied

The Mullumbimby High U/16 girls Futsal team have won another championship after travelling to Coffs Harbour in late October to contest the Combined High Schools North Coast Title.

They qualified for the event after wining the CHS Far North Coast final in September.

Continuing their winning ways the talented team got their tournament underway with a 20–1 victory over Woodenbong.

They went on to have another easy win in their semi-final and then won the final 4–1, defeating the title holders, Bellingen.

‘With the score 1–1 at half time, the second half was tight until Rhianna Browning scored one of her trademark goals from an impossible angle,’ coach Brian Hedge said.

‘The momentum with them, Mullumbimby then took control with goals to Macey and Lilly Donnelly’.

The team line up from their recent success at the Australian titles, where they were runners-up, was bolstered by the addition of Kaliyah Browning and Alisa Tomasella.

‘This has been a fantastic year for this team and we look forward to next year for more entertaining Futsal from Mullumbimby High School,’ Brian said.
