Touch Football Grand Finals

BTGG 2019 12 5 Touch Team1 2

Team 1

Grand Final Day on Saturday 30 November began with repetitive checking of the weather app, with relief to finally receive the “it’s on” email, SCEGGS girls picked up their boots and headed down to Queens Park for the big morning ahead. We were so happy to see so much support from teachers and students at the fields, this growing culture is amazing and it is so motivating to see so many people cheering on the sidelines. With Teams 1, 2, 8, 10 and 11 playing Grand Final matches it was a great morning.

Team 1

The senior firsts game was a toughie, playing in the top division against Monte 1, they knew they had a big match ahead and put up a competitive fight until the 40th minute. The final score of 6-11 to Monte was no demonstration of the game. From the slide dives to the scooping plays, they worked as a team and played their best game, only to have the Monte coach say at the end “you really gave us a run for our money''.

The senior seconds battled it out against Reddam in an exhilarating game of finals footy. The 2 Teams had previously drawn in a round match, meaning it was anyone's game to win. It was neck and neck from the second the whistle was blown. There were some outstanding team tries scored throughout the game. the girls may have fell short in the end, but they put up a strong fight and did SCEGGS proud.

Team 8 had a tough ask facing their Schools opposition after a crushing defeat in the early rounds but brought their A game in the Grand Final showdown. The girls held on 1-0 until half time, frustrating their opposition. They may have fell short in the end, but they should be proud of their efforts finishing their season with their best game yet. They can hold their heads up high and be proud.

Team 10 have had an outstanding season in the lead up to the Grand Final. Spirits were high as they stepped onto the field against St Scholastica's College. The score was 0-1 at half time and the girls went into the second half fired up. They continued to work together and run their plays during the second half, unfortunately losing in a close match. Team 10 should be proud of their achievements this season.

Team 11

Team 11 had some strong competition going into the Grand Final, also against Reddam, who were undefeated throughout the season. The girls played their hardest and ended the game at a tie of 3 all. In a drop off they came down to 4 players and unfortunately lost. Despite the loss, the girls played their best game of the season, with amazing defence throughout the entire game and good communication. The girls put up a fight and it was a win in our eyes.
