CMC v BSE
On 19 July, Catherine McAuley College and Bendigo South-East College played off in the Year 8 Boys Football final at Epsom Huntly Recreation Reserve. The CMC Boys started off strongly with a great goal by Will Stewart who snapped it from the pocket within the first two minutes of play. CMC handled the ball throughout the majority of the first and second quarter and gained a sizeable lead by half-time.
In the second half, CMC displayed great mid-field fidelity, but struggled to convert their entries inside 50 into goals on the scoreboard, finishing with a final score of 5-11-41 to defeat BSE 0-1-1. Despite their inaccuracy in front of goal, CMC remained out of reach due to a brilliant defensive effort from the backline, limiting BSE to just 1 point for the match.
