Knockout Year 10 Boys Soccer
On Tuesday the 5th of July, the Year 10 boys travelled to Unley High School to compete in the Year 10 knockout soccer competition. They played in a round robin format versing Nazareth and Unley High School. Due to the torrential rain overnight, the pitch was muddy and bumpy and it was hard for the boys to play their natural game.

In the first game against Nazareth, the boys came out on top 7-2. Two quality goals by Nick Harpas and some great defending by Luke Semler, Kye Searle and Fraser Morgan held the opposition to only 2 goals.

After only a short break, the boys were right back into another match against Unley High School. With the rain really coming down, the conditions were tough in this winner takes all match. The Sacred Heart boys started off really well. After a few challenges from Unley High and some great play by Noah Smith and Cam Middlin, Chris Ashwood found himself in box and after some great 1 on 1 attacking and the ball found its way into the net after a Unley player put it in from the cross. With their heads held high, the Sacred Heart boys went 2-0 up shortly after the half time break when Chris Ashwood converted from the penalty spot. The boys defended extremely well and got a consolation goal to make it 3-0 and put them into the next round. They should be extremely proud and hope for the best in the next round to be held on September 7 against Underdale High School and Cardijn College.

SHOCS v Sacred Heart College First XI
On the evening of Wednesday 17 August the annual Simon Mathews Cup, a friendly match between the Sacred Heart College Senior (SHCS) First XI soccer team and the Sacred Heart Old Collegians Soccer Club (SHOCSC), was played. The Simon Mathews Cup is aimed at strengthening the ties between the two teams, increasing the awareness of the SHOC organisation for our senior boys and encouraging graduating students to be actively involved in our community post-school. 2016 introduced the inaugural match between Sacred Heart College's Girls First XI team and the Women's SHOCSC team.

The 'Simon Mathews' Cup match was played in honour of the late Old Collegian (1987 - 1988), Simon Mathews and was a celebration of Simon's life and commitment to soccer and Sacred Heart. Simon was instrumental in the formation of the SHOC Soccer movement, was very passionate in doing so and contributed to the club's strong standing today.

The boys' game this year's was a hotly contested match with the old scholars putting the First's under immense pressure. The match was physically gruelling for the school boys forcing them to rely on their technical abilities. The match was close throughout with the old scholars taking a 4-2 victory. The girls' match was not as close with the SHOCSC ladies getting an early 4-0 jump on the SHC team, a gap which proved too hard to recover from. It was fabulous to see the ladies match a part of this wonderful occasion and we hope to continue this tradition into the future. Food and drink was put on afterwards so that the two teams could combine as a community in the Marist spirit.
