Sisters Sophie and Lisa Cary were among a host of Border products to take part in the recent NSW Combined High Schools Soccer Championships in Sydney.
The championships were played over three days and the girls came away with two wins and three losses.
Sophie, 14, and Lisa, 16, made the move to Murray United this season and are enjoying the transition to the NPL environment.
"Playing with the boys is a challenge and it's a great atmosphere within the club. I also enjoy the opportunity of participating in Melbourne Victory's player development academy program," Sophie said.
She took a lot away from the experience in Sydney.
