Congratulations on a fantastic effort by our Senior 1st XVIII football side in yesterday’s ACC Grand Final at the Trevor Barker Oval, Sandringham.
In a tremendous contest where the lead was constantly changing throughout the last half, our boys unfortunately were defeated by 1 point, by St Bernard’s.
A massive thank you must go to:
- All our Senior football coaches (especially Mr Kristan Height, Mr Peter Ciardulli and Mr David Bell – 1st XVIII coaches) for the enormous amount of care and passion the they have brought to senior football again this year
- Our College Football Captain Lachlan Bugeja who has done a fantastic job and been supported extremely well by the rest of the Yr 12 footballers
- Our entire Senior football cohort for the manner in which the represented our college by displaying our Whitefriars College sporting values of Excellence, Honour and Fairness . School sporting teams do not make grand finals unless there is fantastic mateship amongst the group; and these boys certainly have that (largely due to playing five or six years together in Whitefriars football sides)
- Finally, thankyou to all the Whitefriars staff, parents and students who came to the ground yesterday to support.
The final scores were:
St Bernard’s 8 / 11 / 59
Whitefriars 9 / 4 / 58
Goal Kickers: Dylan Williams 7, Matthew Ravenarki 1, Nicholas Reibelt 1.
Best Players: James Blanck, Dylan Williams, Lachlan Bugeja, Mihaele Zalac, Kaiya Jones, Sam Goldsmith, Lex Hartnett, Xavier O’Neill.
