We welcomed our Trinity visitors on Sunday in the middle of the storm. Their boys were a bit worried that they had sat on a bus for 8 hours and would not get to play the rugby and football they had come for. But, typical of Coffs Harbour, Monday saw the clouds break and we had a great day to play.
After they had a morning at the Big Banana they came back to the College to take us on. I invited St Augustines to join us this year in the rugby as we don’t have many U12 rugby players. BDC verse Trinity in the first game, which was for the Victor Branson shield, with some great play from both teams Trinity came out on top 26 – 15, Two more exhibition matches were played, Trinity verse St Augustines, which was very close but Trinity again came out on front. The last game was BDC verse St Augustines, these teams play each other CHJRU on a Friday night, so this was a friendly game with BDC coming out convincing winners.
On Monday the 20th of June, our year 5 & 6 boys football/soccer team took on visitors Trinity Grammar School in a friendly match. The game was very competitive early on, with both teams having plenty of chances to score. BDC we’re the first team to breakthrough with Nick Clifford showing great control and composure to slot the ball in the back of the net. The score would stay 1-0 until early in the second half when Trinity found a way to equalise. The second half was just as competitive as the first, with changes in possession almost every touch of the ball. Credit to both goalkeepers for keeping their teams in the game with countless great saves. A speedy run down the sideline by Zeb Misios in the dying seconds of the match set up Ollie Correy for the match winner to hand BDC a 2-1 win. Both teams should be very proud to have been a part of such a high quality match.
