Round 4 of the ISA competition saw some games held during the week to accommodate other schools, whilst the majority were played on Saturday.
The junior boys touch football won 6 to 3, playing some great footy, creating and exploiting space in the defensive line as they attacked. They scored some well constructed team tries with multiple try scorers.
Our cricket team displayed an improved batting performance, with an impressive and highly defendable 8/190 after 48 overs, before rain forced abandonment of play, without the opposition facing a ball.
The 1sts girls were off to a slow 3 to 18 start against Redlands in the first quarter. The girls battled back to even it up with five minutes to go in the first half.
Redlands showed in the second half why they are the best team in the competition, pulling away, and we were unable to get it back losing 47 to 77. Regardless of the result, the girls made their coach and College proud.
Despite being in the lead at half time, the 13A’s were beaten by St Greg’s who were the better team. Chevalier lost 37 to 18.
A much improved performance by the Chev batting order this week. A patient innings by Harry M was supported by some big hitting towards the end of the innings from Sam M. This saw the side amass an impressive and highly defendable 8/190 after 48 overs.
Unfortunately, the heavens opened up on one too many occasions, and despite the best efforts of staff, parents and students, the match was abandoned without Stannies having a chance to bat. Many thanks to the parents of Chevalier parents who catered both lunch and afternoon tea for the day.
