For the locals, EDNA had nine teams competing on the day with the 11 and under teams playing only for the participation and fun with every player receiving a participation award.

The 13 and under Blue team was the most successful of the EDNA teams, missing a place in the grand final after losing to Shepparton 5-12 in the semis.
