FROM THE CONVENOR OF FOOTBALL, STEPHEN WILMOT
CAS Round 5
On a windy Saturday morning the Waverley College teams manned the cold weather to travel to Summer Hill and Queens Park to take on Trinity. With the wind still howling, games commenced and the footballs were not going to where students were expecting. The 2nd XI tried their luck with some trough balls however with the wind behind them the players couldn’t get to the ball quick enough. After a hard fought game the final score was 1-1. The 1st XI were to follow and realised that the wind was causing problems on the synthetic and put in place strategies to reduce the effect of the wind on the game. The 1st XI finished the game with a strong 2-1 win. Some of the other great results from the weekend were the 3rd XI 2-0, 4th XI 4-1, 7th XI 3-1, 7Cs 4-2 and many of the other teams getting a draw.
This weekend is a time for players to rest and hopefully recover from some knocks and lingering injuries as their will be no games on due to the Queen’s Birthday long-weekend. Training will resume on Tuesday afternoon for Year 10 and opens. Our next game on the 16th of June will be against Knox at Curagul for the Year 7, 10 and Opens and the Year 8 and 9 players will be at home.
Last week we also had three players selected to play in the CAS Under 16s and Opens teams, along with Mr Darvill taking on the role of Opens CAS coach. The Opens went though undefeated with Jack Hardwicke-Owen representing the College with pride. The Under 16s had Mario Rebollo and Marcus Cowan selected to be in the 16s. Mario Rebollo was also selected for the CIS representative team. Congratulations to all of these boys and Mr Darvill for the extra work put in.
