Year 7 Soccer



Year 7 Boys
The Year 7 boys played a round-robin competition against 3 other schools, Weeroona College, Castlemaine Secondary and Bendigo South East College (BSE).

In the first game, the boys had a good contest against Weeroona College, It was a good chance for the team to play a game together after a number of trials and training sessions. The boys won that match 1 – 0.

In game 2 the boys played BSE. This was a great match and very skilful. Sadly though, the boys went down in a tight contest 1 – 0.
Game 3 was against Castlemaine. The boys were terrific. They passed well, and the work rate was excellent and as a result of the good teamwork they won the match 6 – 0.

This result saw the boys qualify for the final which was against BSE. This time BSE dominated play and the CMC boys could not respond to the pressure that they were under the way they wanted to. They tried desperately to shut the BSE forwards down and at times found space to attack as well. It was a fast-moving, hotly-contested match that resulted in the boys going down 3 goals to nil.

The entire squad showed great sportsmanship and comradery across the entire day. They were terrific ambassadors for the College and played some very exciting soccer. Finishing 2nd on the day was a great achievement.

Thanks to Mr Driscoll for coaching the team.
