Moss Vale Dragons under 12s player Holly Crimmins played her last game of football this month.

Crimmins, who has played football since she was six, experienced a win with her team in her final game.

She is bowing out of the game as girls are not be able to play full contact football after the age of 12, and there is currently no over 12 team for girls in the Southern Highlands.

The final game was special as Crimmins’ team had only won four games since she started, and she made a game-defining goal.

“I felt really good that I made a goal, and that we won,” she said.

“I enjoyed the game.”

Crimmins’ family were in attendance on the day.

“Everyone was crying,” she said. “They were happy for me and they didn’t want me to stop playing the game.”

Crimmins thanked all of the people that made the experience memorable for her.

“Thank you to my coach Alex,” she said.

“Thank you to all of the boys in my team that didn’t treat me any differently because I’m a girl.”

Crimmins plans to play league tag or soccer next year.
