Mathew Axtill gets a handball away.


Parkview Public School has produced some excellent performances at the Tony Lockett Shield AFL Gala Day hosted at the Griffith Ex-Serviceman's Oval last Friday.

Entering a boys team (15 a side) and two girls teams (9 a side), Parkview recorded three wins on the day against some very talented opposition from the region's best footballing schools.

Our boys played combined Leeton Small Schools in their first fixture, losing a tight fixture by just 8 points despite the best efforts of Jaykob Williams, Matthew Axtill, Jack Quinlivan and Ziggie Vincent who were all standouts.

The second fixture saw Parkview meet eventual Semi-Finalists Griffith Small Schools, and despite leading by 1 point at half time, couldn't quite handle the all round pressure of the opposition to go down by 27 points. Brandon Hollies, Zac Hill, Paul Poto and Kyle Richards were all terrific for Parkview in this match.

The final game of the day saw a re-match with the Leeton Small Schools, with Parkview recording a convincing 21 point victory, a measure of how much improvement the team made throughout the day. Matthew Axtill starred or Parkview with 3 goals while Cooper Holmes, Ziggie Vincent, Brandon Hollies and Jaykob Williams all featured.

Our girls also tried very hard throughout the day. The Parkview PS Panthers were up against some very tall opposition and despite not winning a game, never gave in. Shikiah Ingram and Hannah Pianca played extremely well throughout the day.

The Parkview PS Penguins were very competitive, winning two of their games for the day with Anisa Cook, Emily Russell and Georgah Pearce all stand out players for the team.
