Our badminton boys were starting to feel the heat after 3 consecutive losses; however, the boys rallied to produce the best win of their season with a commanding 4 rubbers to 2 victory.
It was a successful weekend for both our Soccer Teams as the girls achieved a strong win against Assumption College Kilmore and the boys eclipsed Yarra Valley by 3. The girls were a little slow off the mark (maybe it was the trip to Kilmore), but with solid defence, we were able to hold out most attacks. While this was a terrific team effort, ably led by Regan Phillips, it was Helena Chetcuti’s precise goal kicking and the good defensive work of Ava Bitzios that helped steer the team to victory.
With the boys, Connor Campanella and Abdullah Mahdi played well, as did year 9 youngster, Jonathon Gourlias. Overall, this was a much better team effort in which the boys shared the ball well and worked harder when the ball was in dispute.
Our Girls’ Basketball Team made it back to back wins with a solid performance against Wesley College. With some strong defensive play throughout and some passages of brilliance from Teah Reichert and Liv Wightman, the girls came away with a well-deserved win.
The Boy’s Hockey Team shook off their previous week’s loss with a commanding 8 goal win against Yarra Valley Grammar. Will Rutley (who has been selected in the SSV u16 Boys’ Team) was once again a strong performer, and he was well supported by Thomas Brightling, Tom Meaden and Brigid Watson (who has been selected in the SSV u16 Girls' Team).
It was pleasing to see a good crowd at the Girls' Football match on the South Ground. In a tight contest, the girls hung on to record a good victory. Chiara Scuderi was excellent, winning the inaugural Indigenous Round Award as presented by Carey Baptist Grammar School. Both Emily Gallagher and Laura Mayne offered great support.
Unfortunately, our Boys’ Football team went down in a very close encounter with Yarra Valley Grammar. Despite being down by 4 goals with just 12 minutes to play, the boys fought back to get within 3 points with 90 seconds left. However, in the fading light, we could just not get the break we needed.
Like the Boys’ 1st XVIII, our Netball Team fought hard but eventually went down by just 5 goals.
