RUGBY 7'S

Rugby 7s Carnival 


On Wednesday 4th March the Brumbies held their annual college Rugby 7's carnival. Erindale entered 2 boys and 2 girls teams which was by far the largest participation by any school. For the boys it was a day of competitive Rugby with our team unfortunately losing in the final to Canberra College. Luckily finishing second still progresses them through to the next stage.

For the girls it was a day of laughter and trying something new. Both our girls teams managed to make the semi-finals but the way the draw was produced unfortunately bided them against each other. The eventual winner of that game took out the day and Erindale is now the ACT Girls 7's champions.

ACT WATER POLO COMPETITION

ACT Water Polo Comp 

Congratulations to the students who represented Erindale in the ACT Water polo competition on Friday 6th March.

It was a great afternoon for all involved. Our first game was against a combined Lake Ginninderra and Lake Tuggeranong team. The opening goal was against Erindale after Charlie Rogers was excluded for pulling on an opponent's leg! But it was all Erindale from here on; with three goals to Lochie Phillips, some super saves from Travis Elliot and Bec McCoy sealed it up with a final goal to win 4 – 1.

The final match was against Narrabundah. Again it started with the opposition providing plenty of heat. Some awesome saves from Lochie Phillips, Travis Elliot, Charlie Rogers and Bec McCoy helped to hold them out, but eventually Narrabundah found the back of the net! The next four goals went to Erindale with Connor Hawthorn scoring 2, Lochie Phillips and Bec McCoy both scoring also. Narrabundah scored the final goal, but Erindale were too strong (4 – 2), defending their title to be ACT champions.

Congratulations to all involved: Hannah Fursman, Kate Kichenside, Dylan Weir, Lucy Rowland, Deean Lord, Connor Hawthorn, Lochie Phillips, Travis Elliot, Ben Buchanan, Charlie Rogers, Bec McCoy.
