Chevalier College battled hard in round seven of the ISA winter sports competition.

Saturday was another great day for playing and for spectators. 

Chevalier teams were spread near and far on Saturday and the mountain bike team competed in the NSW Interschool’s event on Sunday.

There were also been a number of girls competing at the NSW Inter Schools equestrian titles held at Horsley Park late last week.

On Saturday, the Chevalier netballers and rugby teams were at home and results overall were very impressive.

The 1sts netballers came away with a great eight point win against Central Coast with Steff Lockett, Georgia Baron and Laura McIntyre impressing their peers, coaches and spectators. 

The Junior A team were given a special mention for turning on a fantastic last quarter.

The girls trailed by four at the end of the third quarter but ended up scraping home by 1 point in a very exciting match.

Good wins were also provide by the 2nds and Inter A netball teams.

In the Rugby against All Saints the 13s and 14s were big winners.

The 15s match was one of the days best, with Chevalier going down by just two points. 

The 16s were very impressive in attack and came away with a dominant 32-7 win.

The 1sts match was a tough battle with scores close until the dying stages, when Chevalier put on a couple of late scores.

Tries were scored by Rohan Wemyss, Benji Maule and Dan McGee with two.

Dan was man of the match but was well supported by Jed McGuinness, Lachlan Dawson and Callum Peattie.

On the road, the hockey teams and some of the girls soccer teams travelled to the Central Coast.

The hockey matches were teams 1v2 in the 1sts and Junior A games.

Unfortunately the home teams prevailed in both matches but each game was a very closely fought contest.

The Junior B team came home very happy after their 1-0 win.

In the girls soccer the Inters continued to perform well and finished with 2-2 draw.

Goals were scored by Mille Horn and Erin Summers.

The junior teams didn’t fare so well.

The 1sts and 2nds were both away against the very competent Barker Girls and lopsided scorelines probably didn’t reflect the efforts by the Chevalier girls.

The boys soccer teams were playing against St Andrews at Wentworth Park and the Domain.

There were great wins on the road for the 1sts, 2nds, 13B and 14B teams.

For the 1sts, Angus Byfield scored a great long range goal, and Liam Ryan-East and Ben Walker both played well.

The 2nds scorers were Aiden Bertrand and Liam Mulhall.

Special mention was made to the Chevalier umpires and referees who made sure that games could actually be played each week.

There are many current and past students who give up their time to come and blow the whistle each week.
