On 4 June students from St Patrick’s Technical College took on Xavier College in the Inter-school Quad Sports Carnival.
Fielding a much shorter side proved to be disadvantageous and players were having to play key positions that wouldn’t have had to before. However, most players can still hold their heads high from their personal performances.
Ethan Keyburg showed courage and determination at every contest. Shane Coulthard was moved anywhere we needed him and did whatever job he was assigned earning him the Sportspower Best Player award on the day for the Fighting Irish.
We did eventually score in the dying stages of the match with captain, James Curley, selflessly passing on to Jaidon Clarke to run into open goal.
We were out-manned on the day however some players lacked the fight they had shown against Banksia Park International School in the Knock-out competition and will need regain that drive if we are going to defeat Marcellin Technical College in the Apprenticeship Cup clash in week 9.
