St Andrews Cup Report
During the first week of the holidays, the Waverley College first XI attended the prestigious two-day St Andrews Cup at Valentine Sports Park. Waverley was handed a tough group with Saint Ignatius College Riverview and 2017 champions Oakhill College. The first XI needed two wins to progress to the semi-finals on day two. Waverley kicked off the day against Oakhill with the team from Castle Hill starting brightly. Waverley was able to come away with the three points with the game finishing 2-1.
In the second match of the day Waverley were out to avenge their loss to Riverview in the recent trial game. Waverley started hard and fast giving Riverview no time on the ball. Wave’s were able to hold on for the 2-1 Win.
On day two of the tournament Waverley played fellow CAS school St Aloysius College in the semifinals. Final score Waverley 2 St Aloysius 1.
Waverley progressed to the St Andrews Cup final and new they would have to play a hard fought game against local rivals Cranbrook if they were to bring the trophy home. The St Andrews Cup Final finished Waverley 3 Cranbrook 0.
Special thanks have to go to the St Andrews School for hosting a great tournament and all the teams that attended for playing the game in good spirits. Go the Waves! Waverley was also featured on football NSW
