Today our students played a hard fought game to draw in the inaugural Interschool Soccer Friendly against Islington Public School. The game was organised to assist in each school’s transition program and to develop stronger links between schools in the Callaghan cluster.
The game started strongly with Tighes Hill leading the scoring and dominating early play. Islington fought back and equalised early in the second half. Both teams battled it out until the final whistle, resulting in a one-all draw.
Referee Greg Fullford declared that the game was one of the more skilled and sportingly played that he could recall. I was so impressed with the teamwork and the camaraderie displayed by all students and it was great to see handshakes and hugs at the end of the match.
Special mention must go to the team captain Callum for his terrific sportsmanship and leadership, Mitch for being a great team player and Lachlan and Ethan for their energy and enthusiasm.
We all had such a great time and students are keen for another match soon. We look forward to organising future interschool events and thank our school communities for their support.
