Sports Report – ISA Round 4
Friday’s showers unfortunately meant that a few of our travelling teams had their games cancelled, while all fixtures at Chev went ahead on a lovely autumn day.
Our Netballers had an interesting start to the day with slippery courts resulting in some juggling of matches, all of which managed to work (and dry) out during the morning. The 1sts Girls had an excellent win against Redlands. In a game which was close throughout, Chev finished on top by 5 points. Chev’s best in a really good team effort were Georgia Rieber, Holly Glennon and Jaimie Thompson who shot really well at the end of the game under extreme pressure.
All Chev teams at home were winners, except the Inter As who couldn’t quite make it a Chev 100% morning, but weren’t that far off. Lots of happy teams, most of who were just happy to be playing at home.
The Hockey Girls also had a good a day out at Blue Mountains Grammar and Moorebank against St Andrews. The 1sts were good winners in a high scoring 6-2 scoreline. Likewise the 2nds and 3rds found the back of the net on multiple occasions. The Junior As had a big win and the Junior Bs went down by one in a good contest with St Andrews. All hockey teams will be looking forward to this week’s trip to the Central Coast.
Tennis and the Rugby 14s and 16s were wet weather casualties.
The Rugby 13s, 15s and 1sts matches went ahead at the picturesque St Andrews Oval at Sydney Uni. The 1sts game was neck and neck throughout the game. Tries were shared until the final minutes when the home team managed a try and conversion to run out 7 point winners. Chev’s best in a frustrating loss was Tom Delamont. The 15s continued on their winning ways with a strong 17-7 victory.
In the Soccer, where nearly all Chev teams were playing at home the Boys and Girls 1sts had contrasting results. The 1sts Girls were up against the well-drilled and skilled Barker team and really got a lesson in how to play. Chev’s best in a team that tried hard were Katie Fitzpatrick, Maeve Hodgson, Emily Walsh and Goalkeeper Indiana Rowley had a “blinder”.
The Junior Girls had a morning of close , exciting matches with Central Coast. The Boys 1sts had a strong 4-0 win in the local derby against Oxley. Goalscorers were Jack Perkins, Morgan Horn and Marko Laus (2). Chev’s best were Josh Economos, Connaugh McEvoy Maggs and Nick Bell.
The Soccer Boys, Rugby Boys and Hockey Girls all travel to the Central Coast this coming Saturday. Here’s hoping for more good results – and weather as well!
