From the Middle School CEA Coordinator (Issue 4 2018) Sport

Written on the 5 July 2018

At the halfway mark of the winter CEA season, I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of the Middle School students for their efforts and sportsmanship displayed so far. The season has been filled with strong results, skill development and team cohesion and a great pride in wearing the College uniform.

It has been an exciting week in College Soccer. 2 Middle School students were this week selected for the First XI Soccer team - the first time this has occurred in the College's history. Congratulations to Fergus Lynch and Oscar Gohl for their selections. However, this selection would not have been possible without the work of Sam Carmichael, the Middle School soccer skill development officer and SHC First XI coach. It has been fantastic to have him on board to assist student trainings and also spot talent to progress students to compete at an open level.

On Tuesday 26 June, our Year 9 Footballers competed in Round 1 of the State Knockout competition. In a 3-way round robin competition, SHC took on Cabra and Nazareth.

Our Year 6/7 and Year 8/9 Soccer teams have also progressed to the next rounds of the Knockout competition. The 8/9 boys defeated Brighton High 4-2, whilst the 6/7 students defeated SPW 3-0. Well done to these young men, the next rounds will take place early in Term 3.

Please enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday break with family and friends. We look forward to jumping back into a busy, but short Term 3 season, with the highlight being the annual intercollegiate weekend on 4 August.

Cross Country State Trials

These trails were held at Oakbank Racecourse on Thursday 7 June. Cael Mulholland (Year 8) raced in the Boys 14 Years 3000m and came second, earning him a place in the State Team selection in the SASSSA. Thomas Dermody , Henry McKinnon and Hudson Weston-Arnold (Year 6) also represented SHC in the City South Team in the Boys 12 Years 3000m race. Henry placed 7th and gained State selection in the SAPSASA team, Thomas placed 35th and Hudson placed 80th out of 157. Well done to all the boys!

SAPSASA Knockout Soccer

On Friday 8 June, the boys travelled to St Peters Woodlands for Round 2. The match got off to a tense start, with St Peters Woodlands making the most of the wet and windy conditions to challenge the Sacred Heart defense in the first 15 minutes. Some quality defending was backed up by another excellent display in goal by Declan Iussa, who made several telling saves to keep the scores level. Late in the first half, some excellent build-up play led to an opportunity for Clay Conway, who opened the scoring with a precise finish. Sacred Heart went into the halftime break with a 1-0 lead, though the match was a very even affair. The tense match continued for the opening stages of the second half, until the pressure was relieved somewhat by an opportunistic goal to Dominik Podolak to put the Hearts up 2-0. The score remained this way until late in the match, when a would-be cross from Liam Powney sailed over the keeper's head for a thrilling long-range goal, ending the game at 3-0 in favour of Sacred Heart. Congratulations to all players for a great team display, which was led well by Captain George Rameh, whose creativity in the second half led to numerous scoring opportunities. The next match takes place on Wednesday of Week 1 at the Middle School against Belair Primary School. Good luck to the boys for this match.

Hearts Cup

On Thursday 7 June, Sacred Heart was the stage for the highly anticipated Year 6 Hearts Cup 'Round of 12'. This event was the culmination of 6 weeks worth of planning, training and competing for our 24 Hearts Cup teams. The 12 top ranked teams qualified for the 'Major' competition, while the remaining 12 teams battled it out in the 'minor' Round of 12. Each group of 12 was split into 4 pools of 3, where each team played each other once. Some pools were very tightly contested, with the top team advancing only through having a higher goal difference. The top team from each team qualified for the semi-final in their division. In the Minor Round of 12, Russia (6.21) defeated England (6.21) in the final to be crowned Minor Champions. In the Major Round of 12, the might of South Korea (6.22) overcame Japan (6.21) in a pulsating match which ended in a tense penalty shoot out. Congratulations to all players for their involvement and leadership both on and off the field. Much was learnt about both soccer and working with others to achieve a goal.
