The day started off well with a 10-0 win over St Brigid’s Catholic College, where the boys were in great attacking form.
The second game was tipped to be a tough one, coming up against what we knew would be a strong MacKillop Catholic College side. The game went back and forth, with both teams having many opportunities to score, but each defence was scrambling too well. A late game try meant that we would win the game 1-0.
Heading into the third game of the pool stage, against St Peter’s Catholic College, we were full of confidence. After a shaky start, with some missed opportunities, we composed ourselves and came away winners 7-0.
The quarter final saw us face off with St Leo’s Catholic College, we were on top for majority of the game and came away winners 7-1, the first game in which we had conceded a try.
The semi-final would prove to be a challenging game against a well drilled Mater Maria Catholic College side. They came out of the gates firing with two quick tries and we knew we would have our work cut out for us. Every time we would score, Mater Maria hit back with a try of their own, not allowing us to get into reach. Unfortunately, we lost the hard-fought game 5-3.
All players thoroughly enjoyed the day, and there were many amazing individual and team performances.
With exceptional leadership and outstanding touch footy ability shown, the player of the day award goes to Lachlan Park.
