Broken Bay Under 15’s Touch Football 2022 – Doyalson 16 February, 2022
The Broken Bay Touch Football Championships were held in Week 3 of Term 1 at Doyalson. Twelve boys nominated to play in the competition and that made the selection process very easy. The following boys representing the College at the Broken Bay school championships: Samuel Flakus, Byron Marks, Luke Shereb, Josh Brown, Oscar Mahoney, Archie Mesritz , Samuel Logan, Fletcher Sommerville , Blade Marquart, Archie Carpenter, Oscar Mahoney and Andrew Hansen.
Captained by Samuel Flakus, the team moved confidently through their pool games and had three convincing wins to begin the tournament. The first game was against St Peter’s Catholic College and the boys powered to a 10-0 win. The second game against Mater Maria Catholic College was tougher with the final score of 5-1. The team then focussed on the final pool game against St Leo’s Catholic College which they won comfortably 8-2.
The semi-final was against MacKillop Catholic College and the boys tightened their defence and came away winners 6-2.
Advancing to the final allowed us to compete against St Augustine’s Catholic College, who defeated us in the final last year. The St Edward’s team started very well and quickly took a 2-0 lead after 5 minutes of play. As the final progressed, St Augustine’s challenged our defence but as they scored, so did we and a two try buffer was maintained throughout the game.
The best player’s award on the day was to the captain, Sam Flakus, who led from the front and was positive in all that he did on the field.
After a possible/probable trial was held on the day, the following boys were selected for the Broken Bay Under 15’s team to contest the NSWCCC championships later this year: Samuel Flakus, Byron Marks, Luke Shereb, Archie Mesritz, Josh Brown.
