FROM THE CONVENOR OF FOOTBALL, STEPHEN WILMOT
CAS Round 10
On the weekend of the 11th of August, Waverley Football played their last game for the season against Trinity. It was great to see how the teams had come together throughout the season to become more than just a team, which in turn let the Waverley spirit prevail. I would like to congratulate all teams on the work they have put in this season and the great sportsmanship shown by the players.
The day started off strong with 10As winning 2-1 followed by the 2nd XI having a very late come back and scoring 2 goals from Anthony Candi and Dean Nappa in the dying minutes of the game to win 2-1. The 1st XI had a hard fought game finishing with a 1-1 draw against Trinity with a goal from Dom Abruzzese. Throughout the day there were many victories for the Waverley teams as they played together for the final time and the last game of the day was the 7As who were playing for the CAS premiership. Going into the game, both Trinity and Waverley were tied for equal first on the ladder and both teams wanted the outright premiership. After a hard fought game and many attempts at goals from both teams the game finished with a 0-0 draw, meaning both teams were combined CAS premiers. Congratulations to the 7As who went through CAS undefeated and winning the premiership.
Football Presentation Night
The Football presentation night was a great success with players from all teams from the Junior school and the Senior school attending to celebrate the achievements made in the 2018 winter season. The night was held to acknowledge the efforts of coaches, parents and players alike in their commitment to each and every training session and game. On the night players from each team were awarded the coaches’ award and the best and fairest award. We also presented the 7As the winners of the Nick Rizzo cup. The Nick Rizzo cup is a long running award of Waverley College that is presented to the Colleges most successful team for the season. As mentioned above the 7As were very deserving of this award due to their very successful season.
The award winners for the night were:
|Best and Fairest
