The knockout soccer team was a much anticipated carnival for soccer enthusiasts at HFCS. We had so much interest we had to hold numerous trials to select a squad. Well done to all students who trialled and well done to the students who were selected.
We have participated in this carnival for numerous years and have always had some success. This year was no different with HFCS taking out the first round robin carnival at Ardtonish.
Ardornish 8-0 win
St Augustines 4-1 win
Round two took us to St Columba.
A galant effort by the boys today playing 3 games against some tough competition. It must be mentioned that all schools had year 7s to choose from which gave them an advantage from the start.
The boys were brave and showed some fantastic passages of play during the day.
St Columba 5-1 loss
Greenwith 1-0 win
Gleeson 6-2 loss
Some stand out performances but both me and Nick felt that Carlo demonstrated true Holy Family spirit. The flexibility to play out of his normal position and give his absolute best, and then off the field ensuring all the strips were packed away properly in the kit bag. Fantastic effort!!
Today students ventured to Ridley reserve for the Catholic schools outer northern football carnival.
Another fantastic carnival with outstanding efforts from our students. Once again they represented the school admirably and the performance followed. We took 43 students today ranging from years 4-6 both girls and boys. A packed schedule saw the teams play 5 or 6 games of modified footy.
This was a lot of students first taste of footy and it’s fair to say they loved it. After the first game, you could see the confidence grow and the skills continued to improve during the day. Many thanks to India, Nina and Dom who helped out on the day and also the other parents who came along to support.
Well done footballers!!
