StPatsTech 11 6 72 Playford 8 6 54
St Patrick’s Technical College’s Open Boys Knockout Football team emerged victorious after the first round of the competition today.
StPatsTech boys took on Playford International at My Money House Oval (Central Districts Football Club) in Elizabeth. StPatsTech started the first quarter strongly with the ball being delivered well into the forward line. By the quarter time bell, StPatsTech was four goals up with a strong start to the second quarter.
Playford International were not to be forgotten coming back in the second half and getting within two goals during the second quarter.
Coach Sheridan inspired the team with a pep talk ahead of the third quarter and the Fighting Irish were able to pull clear ahead to take the win.
Notable mentions for the game include Jayden Lu who performed brilliantly every time the ball was near. Nathan Hearing did well moving from full-forward, where he was having an influence, to ruck, where he was dominant. Tyler Carroll showed that he has some class and was able to deliver to the forward line well. Bisset, Richard, Mailes, Buccini all had an influence with AFL debutant Conor Grey dominant around goals.
There were a couple of injuries suffered from StPatsTech but hope recovery will be swift.
Coach Sheridan thanked Assistant Coach, College Chaplain, Michael McFarlane for his “brilliant” help and ability to master the timing app on his Iphone. Thank you to the family members, teaching staff and students who attended the game to support the side.
