First XI Soccer
This year we have seen the Twilight Soccer League commenced with a home game in round 1 where the boys were defeated by St Michael's College 3 - 2. This was a hard loss to take as it doubled up as a Statewide Knockout game. The team will not progress to round two of the Knockout Competition. Since Round 1, the team have gone from strength to strength, having won the past four games in a row. The boys are currently sitting in second place on the ladder with CBC in the lead. However, the excitement continues to build as CBC are yet to have their bye and the opportunity to go head to head with CBC arrives on Wednesday 27 June. As the saying goes, team work makes the dream work; the boys have continued to demonstrate a passion and commitment to achieving their goal of finishing top through teamwork, strong attendance at training and positive comradery. We farewell Joe Gauci (goalkeeper) who has signed a professional contract with A-League team the NSW Mariners. We are confident Charlie Yull and Caleb Rothe will thrive on the opportunity to step up into the starting goalkeeper position.

For the first time, two Year 9 students Oscar Gohl and Fergus Lynch were selected in the First XI four Round 6. Both receive minutes on the pitch and were very excited to be apart of a winning team against PAC. Nick Harpas currently leads the league in goals scored with seven to his name, and Joel Smith is in second place with four goals for the season. Looking ahead, important dates to be mindful of include the annual Assumption College Kilmore Exchange and the Simon Matthews Cup. The Kilmore Exchange game is scheduled for Sunday 19 August at 9.15am on Brighton Road Oval.

The Simon Matthews Cup, a memorial game held every year in memory of past student Simon Matthews, is scheduled for Wednesday 5 September. This fixture is between SHC First XI team and SHOC's First XI. In recent years we have seen the inclusion of SHC Girls First XI playing against SHOC Girls. It's a fantastic evening with a BBQ and trophies awarded at the completion of the game. Not to be missed!


SAAS Basketball
Sacred Heart nominated 5 teams into the SAAS Basketball Competition in 2018. All of our teams have a win on the board and with only 4 more games remaining in the season, all teams will be looking to improve their position on the ladder. Folded within the Open A Basketball fixtures is the Open Statewide Knockout Competition. Our boys needed to defeat St Michael's on 23 June to keep their opportunity for progression alive - and this was not to be. The Year 10 Boys Knockout tournament will take place later in Term 3. Players will be selected in this team based on their weekly commitment and performance at trainings and games. Positional needs, the ability to be apart of a team and a players ability to respond to the direction of the coach are also key factors for selection. Further information about the Year 10 Knockout team selection will be communicated as the fixtures are released in Term 3.
