Sports Update – 9 August

We had a good start to the sports week last night, with Junior Badminton. A number of our juniors came down and played in the round robin phase of the Junior Badminton Cup. Up-to-date information is posted on the sports notice board weekly on the programme.

The Seniors had a bye last week and tonight they take on HIBS out in Naenae. They remain 3rd in the Regional Premier Competition.

In Basketball, the juniors had a tough 81-40 loss to Silverstream and next week they are away to St Bernard’s to determine their rank for the play offs.

The Seniors had a titanic battle with Tawa College eventually being pipped 77-76. Tonight at 7.30pm they are up against Scots College at ASB, step up and be the 6th man, join the supporters club and make the ASB feel like a home court for our boys.

In Hockey news the 1st XI went down 3-1 to Tawa College last week and tonight they are in a rematch with the winner securing a place in the Premier competition for next year. The game is 6.30 at the National Hockey Stadium so get down and supports the boys before heading to the Basketball.

The 2nd XI suffered their first defeat of the season going down 2-0 to Wellington High. Next week they will take on Silverstream for place in the final!

In Football, the 1st XI suffered a 3-2 defeat to Silverstream reversing the result of the traditional. Tomorrow they take on Wellington College 10.45am at home. With a string of solid performances against them and playing at home the boys will be hunting for a result. The 2nd XI had a close 3-1 win over Wellington College. Tomorrow they take on Onslow College in a top 4 tie. The 3rds had a controversial game and came away with a 4-all draw, tomorrow they take on Kapiti in a top 4 battle.

In Rugby, the U65’s are currently leading the Hansen Cup competition, and are already assured of a place in the finals. This week they take on 3rd place Wellington College, before the big dance next weekend.

Finally, the 1st XV is playing in a home semi-final against St Pat’s Silverstream tomorrow. The winner takes all for a place in the final. The last time the two teams met was in a close battle in the traditional where the school got behind to help them get over the line. It will be fantastic if you come down tomorrow for a 2.30pm kick-off, join the many old boys and supporters that will be there to get behind the brothers, defend our line and support our attack!
