Football (Soccer) – Boys
1sts – won 3-1 against St Spyridon. Very good team performance. Team ‘clicked’ today and worked hard off the ball for each other to create goal scoring opportunities. Defence and midfield have improved week to week, but a real credit goes to the strikers this week who ‘upped’ their efforts to force a full press which created opportunities and space for others. This intensity resulted in Chevalier being up 3 – 0 early in the second half giving the team the opportunity to experiment with a few positional changes should situations change later in the season. Goals this week were scored by James M, Will P and Hanley S. Full credit to Max H who, at short notice, filled in due to injury after a full game in the Seconds.
2nds – won 10-0 against St Spyridon. Consistent effort by all players, displayed a good approach and manners towards each other as well as opposition players.
15s – drew 1-1 against St Spyridon. The words of the captain of the 15s, Hamish J to the rest of the team after the game, sum up the match beautifully: Great game boys. You all played very well with lots of grit and determination. You didn’t give up when we were down. They thought they had us after the first half but we showed ‘em different. We had them on the floor at the end, showing how hard you made them work. That was a great result against the top of the ladder team.
14s – lost 1 nil against St Spyridon. The team tried hard, having 3 times the shots on goal as opposition.
13s – won 3-1 against St Spyridon. After complete, yet scoreless, domination in the first half, the boys went down 1-0 early in the second half. The tidings were looking grim, until an A-League worthy corner kick from Harry M found the waiting head of Charlie S, ricocheted off the post and into the net. A contender for goal of the season! This sparked a crash from St Spyridon with Harry M and Charlie S quickly bagging another each off breaks through the opposition defence. It was a ripper of a match.
Football (Soccer) – Girls
1sts – lost 2-1 against Oakhill College.
Junior Bs – lost 3-0 against St Andrews College. While the result didn’t go our way, this was a big improvement against the competition leaders. Imogen’s kicks were giving their back four a lot of trouble and with a little luck we might have a goal or two from them. Special thanks to Sophie and Sophia for backing us up from the Junior C’s.
Junior Cs – lost 2 nil against St Andrews College. Girls played extremely well and showed great improvement. They played well as a team…improved results from Rd 1 where we lost 0-5.

Inter Bs – lost 21-44 to Redlands.
Inter Cs – lost 22-35 to Redlands. The Inter Cs were looking forward to a revisit of our Round 1 opposition. The girls put in an amazing first quarter to lead, were very closely matched throughout the second and third quarters, but the Redlands team were too strong with a loss stretching slightly to finish the game 35-22. Abbie W put in an incredible defensive effort throughout the game.
Inter Ds – lost 28-45 to Redlands. Girls worked hard throughout the game, however the opposition was tough and took an early lead which our girls couldn’t come back from.
Junior As – won 39-25 to Redlands.

1sts – lost 27-33 against Scots All Saints Bathurst. With Year 11 on Retreat this week our preparation for the game was affected which showed in the way we struggled to get into the first half. A strong second half performance from Chev saw them edge closer to the SAS total with some inspired play from Oliver K, Cooper M and Jack S getting our attack on the front foot. Unfortunately, as Chev were again establishing themselves in the opposition half, looking intent on scoring another try, time was called, and the game was brought to an end. Chev need to be congratulated for the resilience they showed to come back to within a few points of winning the game.
16s – won 55-5 against Scots All Saints, Bathurst (9 tries, 5 conversions). Comprehensive victory for the 16s who played an entertaining match. Despite the score, the opposition fought hard all the way through.
15s – won against Scots All Saints, Bathurst 29 – 21 (5 tries, 2 conversions). Great first win of the season for the 15s who played very well in a tough match. All boys played well and maintained good structure.

13s – won 29-12 against Scots All Saints, Bathurst.
Chev 1 – won 8 sets to 0 against St Pius. 48 games to 10. Another excellent display of tennis from Molly, Augo, James and Riley which maintains our place at the top of the table. Doubles combinations are proving too strong for the opposition, while the singles are just as dominant.
Chev 2 – lost 8-0 against St Spyridon. 20 games to 48. This was closer than the scores suggest, with many deuce games and two tie break sets. Excellent efforts from Hannah, Allegra, Kaito and Rex. Special mention to Allegra and Rex for playing “up” a division.
Chev 3 – lost 2 sets to 6 against St Spyridon. 20 games to 46. Much closer than the scores suggest. We played very good tennis throughout the morning, with Jake and Samson leading the way. Callum and Samip played very well over their three sets.
