Sports Report – ISA Winter Round 3
The weather gods were much more favourable on Saturday 19 May for a big day of sport at Chev. The car parks were all overflowing and crowd figures around the grounds were the biggest for some time.
Local derbies were played in the Boys Football and Rugby with Chev teams gaining bragging rights, but not without some tense moments in most matches.
None more so than the 1sts Rugby where the big crowd witnessed a tough, hard match with both teams very sore and weary at the end.
Chev prevailed 4 tries to 2 with the try scorers being Dan McGee, Liam Clunn, Darcy Howard and Tom Parkes. Best for the winners were half players Liam Clunn, and Sam James, and Callum Peattie and Jackson Wright in the forwards.
In the other rugby matches, the 13s started the day with a good win in a see-sawing match. The 14s had a big win in a replay of last season’s grand final. The 15s couldn’t be separated in a 10-10 draw, and the 16s ran away with their match after going behind early.
In the Boys Football, Chev dominated the undefeated Oxley team, and two goals from Jordan Provino sealed a dominant win. The margin could have been even bigger. Chev’s best were Patrick King, Jude Davids and Aidan Bertrand.
The 2nds also had a good win with goals to Sid Shah (2) and Liam Mulhall.
In the Hockey, the girls 1sts match was a grand final replay against Central Coast. Chev went behind against the run of play to a breakaway goal. The girls deservedly equalised through Gabby Bunyan and once again these teams could not be separated!
The other hockey teams couldn’t find the net, but special mention to the 3rds who played the much older Year 11 and 12 Oakhill girls. The Chev defence was superb, none more so than goalkeeper Olivia Westaway.
It was generally good news for all the Netball teams with most teams winning and playing well.
The 1sts were up against competition leaders Oakhill and couldn’t quite match them on the day.
Our best were Brea Newbury, Molly Parkes and Molly Good.
The Girls Football teams all had a a very successful day. The 1sts defeated St Paul’s thanks to a Zoe Molino goal.
The 2nds likewise against St Andrew’s with an Ashanti Still goal.
And the Tennis teams took on St Pat’s with the A team having a 4-4 draw, with Andrew McIntosh and Albert Locke both winning their singles matches.
Finally, a report from Cam Cowen from the Cancer Council “Relay for Life” Mountain Biking event on Saturday.
A small but enthusiastic team smashed themselves around the short and technical Twin Falls Bush Cottages trail this morning.
It’s a great event run by past student Zac Hulm, a cancer survivor himself.
Chev had two teams entered in the 3 hour relay event.
Perry Mehan, Mitch Alexander, Ethan Lucock and Ingrid Jensen rode hard and fast and managed a top ten finish. Ingrid in her first MTB race ever managed the fastest ladies lap of the day!
Cooper Pettit, Xavier Sedger and I started beautifully thanks to a super quick first lap from Xavier. Xavier was strong and managed to complete five laps in total. Cooper, as always, had a grin from ear to ear and rode himself into the ground.
He completed two valuable laps for our team and was exhausted by his efforts. A few crashes didn’t stop him, in typical Chev style he just kept going.
We managed to scrape onto the podium in 2nd place – a very proud moment for all involved!
