SPORTS REPORT – ISA Summer Finals
Saturday was ISA Finals day and we had Softballers, Basketballers and Cricketers in action. In addition on Saturday, their were plenty of Chev kids involved at the Robertson Show, and on Sunday we had great representation from our Mountain Bikers riding around the Wingello trails.
On Saturday the Softballers at Blacktown did Chev proud and were involved in a couple of really good semi final matches.
The Junior girls led by Grace Kelly and Molly Jones were neck and neck with Central Coast, but one big strike with loaded bases in the final innings was the difference in a 6-10 final score.
The 1sts Girls were always going to be up against it with the St Paul’s pitching talent. But to their credit our girls stepped up to the plate and gave their best. Consistent pitching by Lucy O’Hea and committed fielding led by Sage Herrod.
In the Basketball up the Great Western Highway at Penrith Chev’s day didn’t get off to the best start with both Junior Girls teams going down to Redlands and Central Coast.
The Boys began with the 13A team winning well against Redfield with Naz Christie, Tyson McClelland and Evan Larkins our best.
The 14A team followed suit with a win over Oakhill. Chev’s best were Matt Butcher and Nathan Bowditch.
Next up were our 1sts Boys who have had a superb season and continued their fine form in the final against Stannies.
The boys ran way with the game in the final quarter with Tyler Ottosson, Spencer Reed, and Patrick King leading the way.
The day finished as it had started with a committed effort from the 17A Boys not enough against Oakhill.
So a 50% return from a big finals day and a really great Basketball season. The 13A, 14A and 1sts Boys were all undefeated.
In the Cricket our 1sts travelled to Strathfield to play St Pat’s.
Another great effort was required from the team after last week’s fantastic comeback from the dead result against St Pius.
On a tricky wicket our boys struggled to post a total of 127 with Darcy Murchie, Dom Haire and Darcy Howard gritting their teeth to make some runs during the innings.
Likewise, the application to bowling and fielding was superb, and in a tense finish St Pat’s finished 3 runs short of the required target.
So a tremendous season finished on a real high.
Well done teams!
