Teams representing StPatsTech, Endeavour College and Nazareth Catholic College clashed today in a round robin tournament to decide the winner of round two of the knockout football competition. The games were hosted at Nazareth Catholic College with the first between Endeavour and Nazareth – the hosts running out victors by two goals.
First up for the Fighting Irish was Endeavour. After some hard-hitting and strong play from both sides, Endeavour ran away with the win. Stand out performances were from Max Joseph who was unstoppable as rover, Aidynn Webb who was unbeatable in ruck, Declan Moseley as our stay-at-home centreman and Nick McCue who had the difficult task all day of shutting down our opponent’s key forward.
Our second game was against hosts, Nazareth. This time it was clear we simply could not match their run and desire for the football. Nazareth had a number of players who were able to create great play for their side. For the Irish, our same four players were exceptional in the second match: Max Joseph, Aidynn Webb, Declan Moseley and Nick McCue.
Thanks to Mr Michael McFarlane for all his help as assistant coach, Steve Brookman and Darren Joseph for their support and Josh Denton and Lee Kessner as umpires.
That is all now for the football team in the knockout competition, but keep an eye out for another match potentially happening later on this year.
