In the final week of Term 2 our two Senior Football teams played their second friendly match of the term, this time against Geelong College.

An inexperienced 1st XVIII team travelled down to Geelong College Main Oval after school on Wednesday and matched it with Geelong College throughout the game. Lachlan M kicked the only goal of the first quarter before Geelong College hit back over the next two quarters to lead narrowly at three-quarter time. A brilliant goal from the boundary by Zachary B kept us within reach in the final term but Geelong College were too strong on the night, going out 10-point victors. Ryan C and Daniel C were outstanding throughout the match whilst Francesco P – one of the few Year 11s that played – Charlie C and Charlie H also impressed.

A fresh 24 Year 10 players to the one that took on St Ignatius a week earlier took on Geelong College at Elderslie Reserve on Tuesday afternoon. Although lacking experience together, the boys played a phenomenal brand of team football and kicked away in the last quarter to win by 39-points. Ben C, Nicholas S and Giuseppe P all kicked two goals in outstanding performances, with Jai A, Alfie W and Harry S also amongst the best players.

All in all, it was a wonderful experience for the boys to pull on the famous SJC jumper, many of whom did this for the first time.

Both our 1st XVIII and Year 10 teams kick off their season in early term 2 and we look forward to following their journey.
