John Ferneley College comfortably retained the Steven Harris Trophy after winning all five year group football matches against Long Field Academy.

The trophy is played in memory of a former John Ferneley student who died in his sleep, aged 19, nearly 12 years ago.

Steven’s family donated a trophy which is presented to whichever school is the most successful in matches between all five year groups.

Ferneley’s Year 7s fell behind early on in their game, but managed to come back to win 5-3, while the Year 8s had a big 13-0 win with Ollie Wilkinson Jones and George Lawrence pulling the strings in midfield.

The Year 9 team recorded their first win of the season, coming from behind to beat Long Field 5-2, and the Year 10s controlled their game from start to finish as goals from Kyle Reek, Gallagher Plowman, Josh Clark and Brandon Cresswell sealed a 4-0 win.

The Year 11s also came from 1-0 down to win 5-2 with captain Aaron Doherty on the scoresheet with a superb solo effort.

* Ferneley’s netball teams also won every game against their Melton rivals.

Pride of place went to the Year 10 girls who secured their first win of the season, 7-2.
