On Monday 3 February, the Scots All Saints Under 16s Boys Touch team returned to Learmonth Park to recommence their involvement in the local Monday night competition. It was a tough match against a skilled opposition from Stannies and while players like Hugh Neill, Tom McCumstie, Darcy Roberts, Alex Jonker and Guy Neill put in the hard yards, the boys walked away from the match troubling the scoreboard only once, at the hands of a determined Max Corbett. The boys will take this experience into training and approach next Monday’s match with enthusiasm.

On Monday 10 February, the Scots All Saints Under 16s Boys touch team faced off against another Stannies team in a friendly and well matched fixture. The game was well contested from the outset with both teams attacking the try line with purpose. Four tries to Otto Kuhn and one a piece to Zac Allen and Patrick Walker were enough to secure the win for Scots All Saints 6-5. Other notable mentions go to Darcy Roberts and Thomas McCumstie who were relentless in defense and Benjamin Bingley and Rowan Savage who were invaluable in support.

Friday 7 February Scots All Saints Cyclones v Mocking Jays
The Cyclones were excited to be back at the Basketball Stadium for their first game of the year. Unfortunately, illness prevented the whole team from playing on Friday, but the five Year 8 girls who turned up, were full of enthusiasm; which has been the way they have played the entire season. We played the Mocking Jays, the ladder leaders and a competitive team. While we were beaten on Friday, I commend the Cyclones for playing their hardest for the entire game. The ball moved quickly up and down the court and the girls kept up with their opponents, despite having no subs for the game. Mia was wonderful scoring the majority of our points, Lily and TP made every opposing player work hard to bring the ball down the court and their remarkable determination was rewarded with a number of turn overs and Lizzie and Laura did brilliantly contesting the rebounds. Well done girls.

On 12 February Lions played a well matched game of Basketball against Blueberries. With only 6 players, everyone got a lot of time on court. It took a long time for either team to score, as defence on both teams was very strong. It came down to the last few seconds, unfortunately we went down 12 to 14. I would like to comment on how far all the students skills have come this Basketball season, and how lovely it is to see the team working together. We are only getting stronger and having more fun every game.

Woolworths Master Blaster Under 7’s Cricket: SASC Lions v St Pat’s White Round 10
The rain held off and we were able to have our first Friday evening game of the season. Our players were very excited to bat first and soon had our tally climbing very quickly. Alexander put his new bat to work and scored lots of runs. Our players all tried hard to score as many runs as they could and look for the boundary. Our ½ time break was quite a treat with Hayden’s family supplying beautiful fresh cobs of corn for us all to enjoy. Thank you to Bill’s mum for scoring. It was a great, positive start to our second term.

Don’t forget your hat, joggers and water bottle on Wednesday afternoon for training. Next Friday, Round 11, SASC Lions play RUCC at George Park at 5:30pm.
Mrs Lyn Inglis.
SASC Red were eager to take to the field on Friday night following an extended break. Rugby Union Cricket Club won the toss and elected to bowl. It didn’t take long for the SASC Red bowlers to find their line and length. In the field there were some nice slides to save some boundaries and some excellent throws to the stumps. Rugby Union finished with 125 from their allotted overs. In reply Alex (34) and Charlie (25) set the early pace with some nicely timed shots. Rory also picked up where he left off with a dominant 33 whilst Dylan (15) and Ben (13) continued to show their eagerness between the wickets. To conclude the innings Kobe belted a rapid 20 to take the total to 163. Player of the match was Alex Host. Well done Red!
