Take that, Queensland 

THE last time NSW Combined High Schools claimed the Touch Football National Youth Championships, Abram Kara was four.

This month the now 18-yearold Goulburn High School student helped CHS break a 14 year championship drought on the Sunshine Coast.

Kara scored a try in the New South Welshmen’s upset grand final win over hosts the Queensland Fire – a team comprising Catholic, independent and public school students.

The boys in sky blue avoided a sudden death drop-off with a try seconds from fulltime sealing 6-5 victory.

The teams’ earlier showdown ended in 12-11 win to Queensland.

“Queensland just have the one school side, so they have their Catholics, their independents and their high schools all in one team,” teammate and Yass High School student Ben Wylie explained.

“So the team we beat was their all schools team whereas we were just CHS which is just one school system in NSW and that made the win even sweeter.”

Kara was influential in his team’s championship win. He scored 10 touchdowns in nine matches, including two in a 10-6 semi-final win over interstate rivals NSW Combined Catholic Colleges.

His immediate attention turns from sport to the Higher School Certificate.

Graduating students from across Goulburn and around NSW commence HSC exams on October 14.
