Sports Report – ISA Summer Semi-Finals
Semi finals and finals days are great days for players, coaches and spectators. Lots of nerves, tension, excitement, happiness and disappointment.
Chev had teams competing in Basketball, Touch Football and Cricket.
The Softball girls played their final round and look forward to semis and finals this week.
Chev had 11 teams competing in the Basketball semis at Penrith. It was a huge day of basketball with 76 games in total for the ISA competition.
Our school emerged with 6 teams progressing through to the finals this Saturday.
From the defeated teams, the 1sts Girls were probably the most disappointed. Up against Central Coast the game was even for three quarters, but the opposition managed a point scoring spurt in the final quarter and created a gap which our girls could not bridge. It was a great game, but just not their day!
Luke Tyler’s 14B Boys took their semi to the wire against St Augustine’s and went down by 4 at the final buzzer.
Teams progressing to the Finals in the Girls are the Junior A and C teams.
Both teams have had great seasons so far with Mao Tipping’s Junior Cs really improving in the second half of the season.
In the Boys, the 13A , 14A, 17A and 1sts will all be playing in the big end of season matches next Saturday.
Most teams had relatively comfortable wins but the 17’s was anything but!
A 1 point victory had everyone on the edge of their seats and thankfully Jono Dinning’s boys managed to be in front at the right time.
The Girls 2nds Touch Footballers played their semi finals in warm conditions at St Paul’s Grammar School in Penrith.
Our girls played a fantastic game against Barker, winning 5-3 to progress to the final against Blue Mountains.
In the final, the team could not repeat their semi final performance and went down 2-0.
At Chev, the highlight of the day was the Cricket semi final with our boys playing St Pius X.
In a fantastic game of cricket, Chev posted a good total of 151 with Ben Tucker (48) and Darcy Howard (33) the best contributors.
St Pius were cruising to victory at 3/123 with their batsmen in total control. But cricket can be a funny game.
A run out by Savion Suares , fantastic bowling by Darcy Howard and another run out by Sam Lawrance saw 7 wickets fall for 13 runs! – seeing St Pius dismissed for 136.
Darcy finished with the bowling figures of 5/24.
The Year 12 boys who had played their final game at home for Chev all said it was the best cricket match they had ever played in.
So, on to the finals this week and hopefully many more good news stories.
