Good Shepherd Catholic Community School is the inaugural holder of the Wingate Community Cup, thanks to three late tries in their match against Rasmussen State School today.
The two teams turned on an entertaining 60 minutes of end-to-end football with tries coming from both short and long range.
The late burst of points from Good Shepherd, including a converted try right on full time, gave them a 26-20 victory.
After contesting what will become an annual clash in front of vocal student groups from both schools, each player received a medal from their respective Adopt-a-School Cowboys – Kyle Feldt for Good Shepherd and John Asiata for Rasmussen.
Cowboys game development officer Aaron Payne and NYC squad member Sam Pau had hands-on roles with coaching both schools.
A North Queensland Toyota Cowboys community partner, Wingate Properties has sponsored the Community Cup with the goal of enhancing the Rasmussen community by encouraging healthy activity, inclusion and team participation.
