Annual Great Southern Under-13s Carnival attracts four teams
Albany Lions claimed a thrilling victory in the Great Southern Under-13s Carnival contested by four teams on Sunday.
The carnival has been running since 2010 and wasn’t held last year because of COVID-19.
Two teams from Albany, one from the Ongerup Football Association, and a combined Denmark-Mt Barker side battled it out in the round robin competition.
It was a hive of activity, with close to 90 kids playing in sunshine and a slight breeze.
The matches were hotly contested all day by all teams.
Albany Lions were crowned the winners of the carnival, going undefeated across the fixture.
They played the Albany Eagles in the deciding match, with the Lions emerging thrilling one-point victors in a cracking game of football.
Great Southern regional development specialist Jaxon Liddelow said it was a successful event.
“The number of spectators on the day was astounding, with everyone coming out to enjoy the sunlight and amazing demonstration of junior football,” he said.
“Thanks to everyone from the SDJFA that helped across the day and organising the carnival.”
