Term 2 – Week 3 Results

Senior Basketball:

Facing the same opposition as last week, the Open A team again had a scheduled BYE with Woodcroft not fielding an A team. Despite this, we took the opportunity to ensure many of our A members had the opportunity to play in the B match who held on for a narrow 2 point win at home. Burhan was influential in the win, nailing 2, 3’s on the way to 14 points.

A rough morning for the Open C team saw them succumb to a fierce Woodcroft outfit by a margin of 34 points. Despite the heavy defeat, Nickan was recognised for giving his all on the day to score 6 points.

Middle Basketball:

The Middle A boys flexed their muscles for the second week running, dismantling Woodcroft to run away winners (52-31). Antonio played his best game of the year to help the boys get home in a comfortable win.

Close losses saw both the Middle B and C teams fall short of their travelling opposition in Woodcroft. The B’s fell agonsingly short by 3 despite the best efforts of James, whilst the C match ended 18 to 29 with Hamish recognised as the team’s best player on the day.

The Year 7 team had a well earnt rest on Saturday after starting their season with 2 convincing wins.

Middle Soccer:

The Middle soccer teams further staked their team as a competition powerhouse with a second batch of convincing wins in as many weeks. Ryan was stellar for the B side who claimed a 16-0 victory on home soil whilst Archie showed his class in the A side who defeated Scotch 7-1. Both teams will now look forward to a rise in division to test themselves against tougher opposition.

Table Tennis:

Both Middle and Open teams travelled to St. Ignatius on Friday evening to face testing opponents. Unfortunately, this test was too much for both teams who were unable to overcome their opponents with the Open boys going down 8-12 and the Middle side 2-13 in overall matches. Zaim (Open) and Heath (Middle) were recognised for their strong individual performances for their respective teams.

Girls Soccer:

The girls set out to rebound from a tense 3-4 loss last week against St. Michael’s on Saturday morning but were unfortunately starved of this opportunity as they suffered a 0-2 loss. The girls should be extremely proud of their efforts, playing with only 11 meaning little/no rest for all.

Girls Netball:

A bright Saturday morning flowed into the Year 9 side who translated this into a sunny performance, securing a win against Unley in a low scoring affair (13-8) thanks to a strong shooting performance by Sarah. The sun continued to shine in the Year 7 and 8 matches despite the results that saw defeats for both teams. Isabelle stood out for the Year 7 team as they went down by 18 to Cabra whilst Lucinda impressed the coaches in the Year 8 fixture despite the girls suffering a 24-point loss to Loreto.

Girls Badminton:

Mixed results over the weekend for the Badminton teams with the Senior A team emerging victorious against St Dominic’s in a close encounter (3 to 2). Vinuthi was outstanding in her singles tie, helping to lock in a winning result for the girls.

A tough morning saw the Middle B girls go down to a strong St. Ignatius team 0-6. Despite this, all players gave their all in demonstrating firm resilience.
