Secondary Sport Wrap – Term 2, Weeks 6 to 8

Staff vs Students Cricket Match: Conditions were difficult for the match played over two days on the northern sports field. Both teams seemed to sweat it up, in the hot subcontinent like temperatures. Competition was fierce and as play got underway on day one, the teachers didn’t hold back their bowling attack.

The first innings was played with the senior students scoring an impressive 62 runs, with plenty of wickets taken along the way. Each batting pair had 12 balls to face and the batter was penalised -5 runs for getting out. Noah Woolston top scored for the senior students with 21 followed by Ethan Robinsons 16 and Hamish White with 13.

There were several highlights with Mr Curtis fielding the ball and knocking down the stumps from 30m out for a run out, and Hamish White’s monster 6 over deep gully into the security screen covered windows of H block.

The teachers team were primed for the run chase on day two however talented batsmen Mr Pienaar and Mr Osberger had forgotten to read the script. It was forecast that the opening partnership would repeat their 2018 performance by winning the game from their own bat. The opening bowlers put up a tight performance to keep Mr Osberger to -3 and Mr Pienaar to 6. The teachers team finally saw their first boundary with a lovely 4 runs through square leg from Mrs Carlson. Hamish White’s slippery bowling looked challenging from the outset however it did not go in the students favour with many balls beating the wicket keeper as well as the batsmen to the boundary. Mr Modlin top scored for the teachers with 19 runs.

Scores were level with a partnership to go. The game was not near over with the possibility of lost runs for the -5 rule. Fortunately for the teachers, Mr Evans and Mr Whysall stood their ground to ensure a 5 run win to the teachers.

SC Netball competition
Round 2

The netball girls played absolutely phenomenally this week in the Sunshine Coast Netball competition on Monday night. The Falcons proved to be unstoppable with a convincing win over Suncoast Grammar with a score of 23-2. A crazy fun last quarter mixup of positions only went towards highlighting how diverse the players capabilities are, with the defence shooting extremely well and the attackers defending their territory! MVP went to Olivia McKenzie who played an unstoppable defence in the circle as well as proving she is a skilled shooter.

The Hawks game was a tough one, but their defence was strong and the attack amazing. Hawks defeated the Flinders team 26-9, with Eliza earning MVP for her agility in attack and tireless speed on the court. Overall, the win was definitely attributed to each and every player on and off court working so well together and supporting each other. These girls have shown how team spirit and commitment makes a netball team shine on the court.

The senior team had a fantastic first game for the season with a 14 all draw against St Teresa’s.
The girls are starting to find their rhythm and best combinations on court. MVP for the game goes to Lacey Hall who was amazing in defence (those basketball skills are coming in handy now!).

Senior Girls (Eagles)

GCC lost to Meridan 9-11.

Round 3

Our Senior girls took on Meridan this week. We started off really well in the first half, showing some great skill and strong defence. Our second half was a little scrappy but we are still finding combinations that work on court. MVP this week goes to Kianne for her moves in the goal circle despite her protests about not being a shooter! We went down 11-9 but the effort and joy the girls all bring to the game is worth more than any win.

The Hawks

GCC defeated Chancellor 20-14

The Hawks team really stepped up against Chancellor and played exceptionally as a team, despite missing some key players. They won with a score of 20 to 14 with both attack and defence proving unstoppable, resulting in Ebony King coming away with MVPs this week. Thanks to Michelle Boroughs for stepping in this week to support the Hawks on court!

Junior Girls (Falcons)

GCC defeated Matthew Flinders 26-8. Netball this week saw the Falcons claim victory once again against Flinders, with a very convincing win 26 to 8! The Falcons attack was on point, and Lily Breen came away with MVP this week for showing great versatility in both defence and attacking positions.
