The day started well with a 5-1 victory over St Paul’s College, Manly with Hamish McAteer scoring a sublime hattrick. Our second match of the day was a one-sided affair against St Peter’s Catholic College, Tuggerah where St Edward’s, again dominated in a flurry of goals to win the match 8-0.
This match was followed by a closely contested battle against MacKillop Catholic College, Warnervale. In the MacKillop match, Tahj Werner confirmed the win with a dominating strike from the penalty spot and the boys were able to hold off for a 1-0 win with some frenetic defensive work. This meant we finished top of our pool with 3 wins 0 losses and only 1 goal conceded.
The semi-final match saw our boys up against St Leo’s College, Wahroonga in another tightly contested match, fortunately the team was able to make it through to the final match with a 1-0 win, keeping their composure despite the added pressure.
In the grand final match St Edward’s came up against arch-rivals MacKillop Catholic College, Warnervale, who reached the final after winning a penalty shoot-out and this time, unfortunately MacKillop were the victors 1-0. There was certainly no shame in the loss as our team played with a high level of skill, so much so that Gryffin Stevenson was awarded player of the match.
Congratulations to all boys for their commitment to the team and the College.
