Forster's Leteesha Amato and Bungwahl's Ginger Harrison continue to perform well for the Northern NSW U14s girls' football squad at the Westfield National Youth Championships in Coffs Harbour.
Their team was ranked equal second with NSW Country coming into the second last day of competition today, July 18, with Capital Football leading by four points.
Leteesha Amato played a key role in Northern NSW's 2-1 defeat of Tasmania yesterday, setting up an early scoring opportunity that went begging and then backing up with the first goal of the game minutes after the second half started.
Northern NSW technical advisor Leo Bertos admitted it wasn't the team's strongest performance but they did well to get the win.
"Overall it was a very scrappy game with a lot of turnovers," he said.
"The Northern side still looked like they were controlling the game."
In their earlier two games Northern NSW took a 1-0 win over Football West, while Capital Football beat them 2-1.
Leteesha's mum Kim has been on hand watching the competition unfold and said the level was high.
"There are a lot of talented young girls up here," she said.
"It's a lot stronger."
She said Leteesha had been enjoying herself and was playing well considering how competitive it was.
"When she gets the ball she does her job," she said.
The competition wraps up tomorrow, July 19.
