Sports Report – ISA Semi Finals
Results on Saturday were a real mixture at the ISA Semi Finals. Chev had wins in all sports but also a few losses along the way. Plus a history-making achievement in one summer sport.
The Softballers at home had a great morning against Barker College. The Junior team had a good win against the newly formed Barker youngsters and the 1sts played two games with a win and a loss. Good news is that both teams progress to this week’s finals at Blacktown.
In the Basketball at Penrith and St Paul’s Grammar, Chev had ten teams in action throughout the day. One girls’ and two boys’ teams have progressed to this week’s finals. Bec Graham’s Inter Girls were all good in a top team effort for a 4 point win against Central Coast.
Karlee Matthews’ 13B Boys team also had a close one, winning by 5 points against Oakhill. Chev’s best was William Bryce.
Our other winning Basketball team was Luke Tyler’s 15B Boys with a great 6 point win against St Augustine’s.
The hard luck story of the day was Karen Robertson’s 17B Boys who went down by one basket in a nail biter against St Pat’s.
In local Cricket at Chev, our boys bowled and fielded well against the top Bowral Kookaburras team. Matt Colgan showed his batting potential with 71 runs.
The Chev sporting highlight of the day was at the Girls Touch Football finals where our 2nds team and the Junior C team were in action. Dave Fairall’s ‘Segundos’ progressed to the final with a 3-1 win against Kinross in the semi.
An outstanding game in the final against Barker saw the Chev girls run out 4-2 winners and take out the first ever premiership for a Chev team in Touch Football.
Try scorers in the main game were Alice Hamlen, Lara Colley, Ivy Keat and Georgie Cochrane.
In other news, we await the results from Hayley and the Canberra Royal Show team.
And also from the capital, we had nearly 40 Mountain Bikers competing at the James Williamson Enduro – ‘Willo’ event – which was moved from Wingello due to the bushfires.
In the Willo, Chev had a clean sweep in the U15 Girls: 1st Bridie McCarthy – 2nd Daisy Brumfield – 3rd Harriette Bowen and Harry Johnston was a clear winner in the U17 50km race.
With three Chev basketball teams through to the finals and the semis to go for the Softballers, we look forward to another great morning of sport on Saturday 7 March.
