Oxley Vale Attunga have won the annual Phyllis Grant Memorial six-a-side tournament in Gunnedah.
OVA, playing under the banner of Jack's Hurricanes, and Gunnedah United both finished on five wins and a draw, but the former narrowly had a better for-and-against percentage.
Eight teams took part in the tournament including Hillvue, Narrabri and Gunnedah FC.
Tournament co-organiser Richard Grant, Phyllis Grant's son, said: "We'd obviously love to get more teams.
"North Companions were [the trophy] holders ... but they couldn't rustle up a team this year, which was a real shame because they've always been great supporters [of the event]."
Phyllis Grant passed away several years ago. Her son said soccer was her "great passion in life".
"Once we got this big trophy it really sort of let's you know that we appreciate what people do for sports, on a voluntary basis and for long periods of time," he said.
"She [his mother] never missed a game and was always there for any role that was needing some assistance in," he added.
Mushies coach Mitchell O'Keefe said they entered the carnival as "a bit of fun".
He said there were a few sore bodies come Sunday afternoon after ending up with only the bare six, which meant they had to play the day without any subs.
"We also didn't have a keeper, so we swapped keepers pretty much every half," O'Keefe said.
He said there were some good teams there on the day.
"The first four games were pretty close, we only won by one or two," he said.
Their last two they were a bit more convincing.
Knowing that they had to try and score as many goals as they could to boost their for-and-against, they slotted 15 in their final two games.
