AFL Diversity Championships: Day Three results
Day Three of the 2018 AFL National Diversity Championships kicked off with a bang for the AFL NSW/ACT All Nations squad, taking their first win of the tournament.
Coming up against the Northern Territory, the lead changed multiple times over the course of the game, but it was not until the final second of the match that AFL NSW/ACT would secure the result. With Thomas Sase kicking the winning goal, the All Nations side came away with the victory by one-point.
Omar Matar was at his usual best down back for AFL NSW/ACT, even sneaking forward for a shot on goal that resulted in six points.
In their second match of the day, the local side took on Western Australia who currently sit equal first on points, on the All Nations ladder.
Unfortunately, the AFL NSW/ACT side were unable to cause an upset, going down to the Western Australians by 27 points in a spirited effort.
It was a tough start to the day for the AFL NSW/ACT Kickstart side, coming up against Kickstart ladder leaders, Western Australia.
Much-like their All Nations counterparts, the home team struggled against the might of the team from the west coast, eventually going down by 86 points.
It was a closer affair in their second match of Day Three, coming up against the Northern Territory. While the margin blew out to 44 points by the final siren, it was not reflective of a hard-fought match.
The Kickstart side’s first half was certainly their best, however, the Northern Territory players overran the locals with pure speed and accuracy on goal.
Each of the players from every state and territory also took part in an education session today about awareness in social media, as presented by NGNY (Ngakkan Nyaagu), a 100% Indigenous owned digital agency in Sydney. Aime Mentoring also spoke to the group about the importance of an education.
