The Year 6 and 7 Interschool Sport for Term Three is touch football and our teams all started well in the reduced two week competition.
The Year 6 girls’ team, competing in the B division, had a perfect first week of games winning all three games by at least seven tries and conceding none. Sophie Trevan and Jaylah Daunt both played in the District Touch team so brought much experience to the otherwise inexperienced team. The girls learned quickly and gained valuable ground by simply rucking the ball up the field. Sophie and Jaylah combined really well and scored many run away tries out on the wing.
The Year 6 boys’ team also started well with two strong wins against Maleny and a draw against Beerwah which placed them in second place after Week 1. Most of these boys are used to playing rugby league but they are transferring their skills well into touch football.
The Year 7 teams have been playing Touch Football in the SCISSA Year 7 and 8 after school competition and are more experienced. They did meet strong opposition though in this A division competition. The boys started their games strongly and gained a lead only to be beaten in the later stages of the games. They finished with two loses and a draw and hope to score some more wins this coming week. The Year 7 girls played two very close games against Glasshouse and St Michaels, winning by one try against Glasshouse and losing to St Michaels also by one try. They were convincingly beaten by Elimbah 2 -5 and are sitting in fifth place after day one as are the boys.
