The Year 7 to 10 Specialist Football classes have rounded out the year by playing a series of games against rival Specialist Football program school, Governor Stirling Senior High School (SHS). Although not all results went our way, there were pleasing displays, both individually and a group.
After a slow start and sitting 14 points down at quarter time, the group refocused and played to position and structure which resulted in Warwick controlling the majority of the game and coming away with a 14 point win.
Opposed to a much bigger and stronger opposition the Year 8 students performed well to stay with Governor Stirling SHS for the first 3 quarters before being overrun in the last. Especially pleasing was our use of quick hands in tight situations as well as our positioning centre square ruck contests.
Best – Jason Pham, Mitchell Perry, Giarn Laurendi, Harrison Martion.
With large numbers missing due to injury and absenteeism, the Year 9 and 10 students were aware of the challenge ahead of them. To the group’s credit they were able to more than match Governor Stirling SHS before, like the Yr 8 students, being overrun in the last quarter, conceding 7 goals without bothering to trouble the scorers ourselves.
