GOLDEN point couldn't separate the under-18s finalists in the Fraser Coast Broncos Schoolboys Challenge.

Urangan pipped St Mary's courtesy of being the first try-scoring team on a night that made history.

U18s: In what was a pulsating affair from start to finish, Urangan scored three quick tries and raced to an early 12-nil lead.

St Mary's clawed their way into the contest, and with momentum on their side led 14-12 with 20 minutes remaining.

Over the concluding stages the lead changed hands several times, with St Mary's levelling scores at 22-all with seconds remaining after a try on their right edge after sustained pressure.

The subsequent conversion attempt to win the game was waved away, as was a St Mary's penalty goal attempt after the full-time siren.

Two five-minute periods of golden point extra time still left the scores locked, with Urangan being declared winners after having earlier scored the first try in regulation time.

Urangan will now go on to represent the Fraser Coast against the champion Bundaberg school to progress through the GIO trophy stages.

U13s: Xavier overcame a brave Aldridge side to the tune of 28-10 with Jack Roderick earning player of the match in honour of his outstanding defensive effort.

The match was evenly poised with only two points the difference with 10 minutes to play, before Xavier finished the stronger to claim the honours.

U15s: Aldridge booked their spot in the next round, winning the trophy with a 22-10 defeat of Urangan.

Ethan Ballard led the way in the strong Aldridge victory, while Chilli Hope deserved his player of the match award in a losing Urangan side.

U13 girls: 2017 also saw the introduction of the Karen Murphy Cup pathways for schoolgirls rugby league.

The Barbarians side defeated Urangan 24-4, with Ella Webb earning the player of the match award for her outstanding play-making.

U15 girls: The match saw another win to the Barbarians, this time over an enthusiastic Maryborough High side, running out 28-8 winners.

U18 girls: The match was dominated by Urangan High, with Urangan 1 defeating Urangan 2, 24-16.

Gracie Eadie was judged best on ground for Urangan, while Jamara Byrnes picked up an award for her strong performance in Hervey Bay High colours.

For the first time, all three sides will go on to represent Fraser District in the knock-out stages of their respective state-wide competitions.
