Heaton Manor and 360 Academy progress
Gateshead Stadium provided a fitting venue for the recent Tyne & Wear Girls Carnegie Champion Schools Finals.
The year seven and eight event proved to be an amazing day with over 200 girls from 13 different schools taking to the field.
In a tight competition there were a number of schools in contention for the coveted titles and when the dust finally settled the year seven final saw Heaton Manor play Whitburn.
Both teams looked sharp in the group stages and the outcome was only settled when Heaton Manor crossed for two late tries to seal a 3-1 win.
The year eight final saw 360 Academy and St Thomas More face off and despite a gallant effort from St Thomas More the girls from the 360 Academy just proved to be too strong.
Both winners will now progress into the North East Finals where they will play the winners from the Durham Schools.
This will take place on Thursday 12 of May at Shildon Leisure Centre.
