BENDIGO South East College kicked a goal in extra time to become Victorian intermediate girls soccer champions for the third successive year.

The goal broke a 1-1 deadlock in the nail-biting grand final against McKinnon Secondary College on Tuesday and completed BSE's amazing three-peat of state championship wins.

Kelsey Ralph found the net during regulation time in the title decider, but it was a great strike off the boot of Jacquie Radnell in overtime that secured the Victory Cup for the team of talented year nine and 10 girls. 

BSE won its way through to the School Sport Victoria state finals in Melbourne after qualifying at local division and regional level.

They began their campaign on Tuesday slowly, drawing 1-1 with Creekside K-9 College in their opening match (scorer Grace Edlin).

But the girls soon hit their straps and scored a cracking 3-0 win over Warrnambool College (Charlotte Edlin, 2, Tilly Roberts, 1).

They had to beat University High to make the play-off and managed to hold them goalless, while Charlotte Edlin again hit the target. 

"Given this was quite an inexperienced team, this was a great result," BSE said in a statement.

Members of the winning team were: Kate Salvador, Emily Cossar, Jessie Stradbrook, Hannah Goss, Kelsey Ralph, Emily Connor, Charlotte Edlin, Maya Lane U’ren, Eliza Moresi, Matilda Roberts, Brooke Sheppard, Ruby Dyer, Jaqueline Radnell, Madalyn Tresize, Grace Edlin, Jemimah Bish, Casey Barczynski, Shelby Gahan and Mikayla Kerr. Coaches: Ernie Fleming and Dave Coward.
