Sports Report – ISA Winter Round 10
The final competition round of the ISA season has come about very quickly – it feels like we just started Term 3! It was another sunny Saturday, but the strong chilly breeze on the Highlands made conditions not quite perfect. Nevertheless, we had a great day of sport which saw families enjoying, participating and watching the efforts on the fields and courts. It was particularly special for many of the Year 12 students who played their final rounds for Chev on Saturday.
We had a full day of Rugby on the Main Oval with Chevalier v Oxley drawing a large enthusiastic crowd. All matches were close contests, there was lots of excellent play, no major injuries, and having the local derby back as a fixture was a winner! All matches were close. Oxley started as winners in the 13s and Chev were victors in the other match ups.
The 1sts game was a high scoring affair with 85 points scored. Ed Baillieu starred for Chev scoring 4 tries. Ollie Lowe also scored and had a good match, as did Hugh MacRae and Tom Parkes. All the Chev Rugby teams will now look forward and train hard for the upcoming semis and finals.
The Netball girls were all at home and the Junior teams were all winners against St Andrews. The Junior C team came back well in the final quarter to snatch a 1 point win. For the Senior teams, the 2nds and 3rds probably played their best games of the season against Oakhill. The 1sts team also played really well against top quality opposition. In a great game to watch the best for our girls were Steff Lockett, Erin McGuinness and Eva Lawrance.
In the Tennis, played away at Barker College in Stathfield, Chev had a great 6-2 win against St Patrick’s. Nathaniel Tonks was our best player on the day. Our Div. 7 team now looks forward to playing St Pat’s again in this week’s final.
In the Girls’ Hockey, the 1sts and 2nds played Oxley and, despite finishing behind on the score sheet, will go in determined to reverse the results when they play each other again in this week’s semi finals.
The Boys’ Soccer teams all had a tough day on the road away against St Pius who have been the dominant school in boys’ football for the past few seasons. Effort and application was not lacking but our teams did suffer some lopsided results against high quality opposition.
The reports back from the Girls’ Football was much more positive, with great results on the road. The 1sts played Redlands and probably should have come home with all the points, but had to settle for a 1-1 draw. Our goal scorer was Tori James. The 2nds had a great 5-2 win, with Ebony Whitlock scoring 3, and Aimee Merlino and Dani Rieber a goal each. The Inters had a 2-2 draw against Barker and look towards progressing in this week’s semi finals. The Junior teams travelled up to the mountains and the Junior B team came home with a fantastic 2-1 victory.
So now we look forward to semis and finals, hoping for Chev success.
