The Under 13s made the trip down to Redfield College in Sydney on the weekend. After a slow start, and a couple of quick tries from Redfield, the boys clicked into gear and were competitive in many areas of the game. The pick and drive worked again for them with Clancy Harvey crossing for two great tries. Their tackling has improved and Will Helms was outstanding at fullback. Jaxon Jordan was great in defence and has the makings of an excellent number 10. Unfortunately, Redfield was too strong running out winners. The boys are really improving and show a lot of heart on the field. 3 – Clancy Harvey, 2 – William Helms, Jaxon Jordan – 1.
The Under 14 team is really starting to play as a team and their first 15 minutes against Redfield could not have been better. Their rucking and mauling was outstanding, as was their support play. Brody Paterson and Charlie Davis lead for the font with some excellent defence and hard ball running. Jazariah Hag continues to be difficult to tackle for the opposition with his evasive ball running. Mitchell Ellery and Mitchell Giffney were fantastic in the scrums winning a great deal of tight head ball against the feed. The score finished Redfield 36 and Scots All Saints 0 but this did not reflect the closeness of the match as Redfield scored a lot of their points in the last ten minutes of the match. I congratulate the boys on working hard at training and putting the skills learnt into practice in the match.

On Saturday 1st June, Scots All Saints College Stars played against Panthers Blayney and won their first match with a score of 3-2! Although scores aren’t recorded at this level, experiencing that success and seeing the joy on their faces was priceless. Teamwork skills are growing with each game and many strong passes led to their success in this match. Our Player of the Week was Louis, who did a great job playing Centre. Congratulations must also go to Elisabeth Jenkins, who scored all 3 goals! Well done Stars!

Scots All Saints College Greats
Scots All Saints Greats played a tremendous game of Netball on Saturday. The entire team demonstrated great sportsmanship and teamwork to give us another win. Lydia and Soana did some wonderful intercepts and strong passes. The girls always put in their best effort at training and take on each new skill with enthusiasm; these skills and drills were shining through on Saturday. Enjoy your sleep in next Saturday. Fantastic effort again girls!
Miss Bronte Murray (Coach)
Round 5 saw the 12 SASC Blues have their second loss as they were defeated by Eglinton All-Stars Topaz, 40-4. All of the girls were present for the game on the weekend, showing their love and dedication for the sport. The opposition were all tall girls making it hard to move the ball down the court as no-one was coming forward, something to reflect and work on in the future. The girls who played in defence showed tremendous effort as they repeatedly turned over the ball, something they should be proud of. Even with the loss the team is 4th on the ladder with 3 wins and 2 losses. With no netball this weekend, I wish all of the girls and families a great long weekend.
This week the girls had a tough game against the All-Stars, being a few players down on Saturday. Unfortunately, the 12Red’s went down to the All-Stars, but played great as a team and had lots of fun. This week Eliza and Lily tied votes for Player’s, Player and Imogen and Harriet did an excellent job working together in the goal circle. This weekend there is no netball due to the long weekend but round 6, the 15th of June will see SASC Reds take on Superstars Bellas at 8:45am on court 8.

Our first win of the season
Let’s hope next week it’ll be two!
With a couple of our players attending other events last Saturday, the 14 Orange girls had to seek the expertise of Caitlin and Elspeth from the 14 Yellow team. It was a difficult match as we opposed a very strong Mana outfit. If we can take anything away from the game, it would be our observations of the Mana team who were incredibly quick on their feet with accuracy in their passing and shooting. I was impressed with the Scots All Saints’ 14 Orange team’s positive attitude throughout the match and they as always must be commended on their terrific sportsmanship. The ‘Player’s Player’ this week was awarded to Annika for her cool and calm approach to shooting under pressure.
Scots All Saints 14 Purple had a very close game on Saturday against the Panthers Allstars. It was a tight match all the way through to the very end, with the girls eventually going down 8 – 14. Throughout the game, the girls showcased some marvellous defence and attacking skills. I was very impressed with their focus, determination and wonderful team spirit. The girls continue to get better with every game that we play which is wonderful to see. Congratulations to Lily who was our player of the week! Due to the long weekend next weekend, our next game is on the 15th June at 12:10pm.
On a foggy and cold Saturday morning, the Scots All Saints 14 Yellow played a superb game against the Bulldogs. Every single one of the girls gave their absolute best effort and displayed wonderful teamwork skills to get the ball smoothly down our end of the court. We had some outstanding shooting with goals from Heidi, Emily, Elspeth and Caitlin. Zanthie, Beth and Issy worked wonders in the middle court, while Libby and Cailtin showed tremendous effort in defence. Congratulations to Beth for receiving player of the week! The final score was 29-5 with the girls having a strong win.
The SASC Navy netball team fought well in the first two quarters of their game against Mana Ahi, though they wrapped up with a score of 13 goals against 28. All girls fought through the cold and supported one another as a strong team. They demonstrated gracious behaviour and sportsmanship in congratulating Mana on their win. Well done ladies!
Miss Hodge (Coach)
We were a little short of players this week and were very grateful to have Elizabeth Savage, from the 14s, play up. Elizabeth played solidly in the wings and was a great help. Despite the valiant efforts of all players we were not the victors in this game. Maddy proved herself a consistent player in both ends of the court and Jess played an energetic centre throughout the game. A great game played by all girls.
Mrs D. Nelson (Coach)
The Scots All Saints blues netball team had a tough game on the weekend against Superstars Thunder. The girls worked hard all game and have started to gel together into an amazing team. The girls put up a strong defence and offence but it unfortunately with some girls away it wasn’t enough with the Superstars winning with a score of 51-23.
The SASC Colts netball team had a good win on the weekend against Bathurst 14s Rep Team. The girls started the game off strong and kept a good lead for the duration of the game. Lots of encouragement and good sportsmanship was shown on the court between the players and opposition and despite the Rep teams strong defence in the 4th quarter the girls kept their heads up and as a result the girls won the game 43-25.
There was some friendly competition and banter on the court when the thirds took on their peers, the fourths. The thirds beat the fourths 51 to 15. All the girls played well in positions they don’t usually play. The final quarter saw the Cashen sisters scoring goals successively with both Gabby Boshier and Gab Morrison defending the other goal fiercely.
Miss Johnstone (Coach)
The 2nds netball team had a challenging game on the weekend. The girls played extremely well, fighting till the last second. Their defence was extremely good especially with their intercepts and rebounds. The mid court players worked really hard and focused well on their clearing and driving which they have been working a lot on at training. The shooters were on fire and were scoring goals with ease. As the game was extremely challenging, being back and forth for the last quarter, the end result was unfortunately not in our favour. The end result was 40 – 39 with OOT Rosellas just taking the win.
Scots All Saints 1sts had a very tough game this weekend playing the top team Collegians Mystified. Although the girls went down with a 60-24 loss they kept a fight up the whole game. Our first half was definitely the strongest part of the game with our amazing defence working hard in the circle to obtain as many turnovers they could. Our mid court doing a great job to work the ball down to our end and also gaining a few intercepts in there as well and to finish it off with our shooters to get the ball in the ring. The girls did an extremely good job and can’t wait to get back out after the long weekend.
On Saturday the First XI played round 2 against Kelso. The first half was a very close match with both sides having opportunities in the circle. The half ended with the score being level at 1-1. The girls starting clicking in the second half with plays starting from a turnover in defense. Passes would link together through multiple players leading to some lovely team goals. Belinda Kidd and Kate Hodges showed skills and consistency by shutting down the Kelso attack multiple times. Special mention goes to Brooke Webb who showed strength on the ball in attack. The final score was 5-2 our way with goals going to: Lily Kable (2), Brooke Webb, Sophie Hillsdon and Bridget Ellis. Players player this week went to Kate Hodges.
Miss Stacey Tomlinson
Scots All Saints College Blue
The U15’s Blue team had a great game last Saturday, resulting in their first win for the season. They got up 2-0 against Kelso. The girls all played admirably despite having no subs, and there were huge improvements from everyone. Joanna Morrison scored both the goals.
Scots All Saints College Red
The reds are continuing to improve with every game, playing a great game on the weekend. Although the result was a loss, the girls really worked well together as a team and created some great opportunities to score. The teamwork between the girls is getting better and better with every game and the training and hard work is really paying off. Special mention goes to Gab Pallister for her awesome effort in the goals. Gab made lots of great saves throughout the game to keep the score down. Player of the match went to captain for the game Francesca Bourke as she was strong in defence and shut down the opposing teams attackers effortlessly. Well done girls and keep up the good work.
Under 6 Brumbies
On Saturday the Brumbies played well together improving every week and slowly starting to understand that it helps to work as a team. Player of the match went to Alex for effort.
Under 6 Meerkats
The Meerkats are working well together. Focus this week was on passing with some good progress made with many of the players passing on field to team mates in space.
Under 6s Leopards
Another great game from the Leopards this week! This game was quite equally matched for both teams but the Leopards came through with some fancy footwork and used the sides of the field to get around the opponents time after time. The boys are learning to pass the ball a little more this game. We will continue to practise this at training. Well done Leopards!
Under 6s Wolves
The team keep on having a wonderful time on the field, leaving all matches so far with as many smiles as goals scored. Everyone has been putting a lot of effort on the field, and it’s been an impressive start of the season with all players showing an improvement after each match. This week, Hugh Stewart showed his best performance so far, with wonderful chasing of the ball and an admirable ‘I can do’ attitude. He very happily received the Player of the Week Medal. Well done Hugh and well done Wolves!!!! Enjoy the mini break this weekend and I look forward to our next match.
Under 7s Emus
The Emus hit the ground running on the weekend with wings flapping, especially improving in their ability of passing the ball to other team members. As s result, Noah flashed down the outside, Joel streaked ahead of his opponents, Hayden danced through the middle all scoring magnificent goals. All the while, Oliver and Lucas played key roles in defence setting up forward movements. Dylan McArdle was everywhere and played the team game in both attack and defence. Dylan additionally played the entire match with tremendous bravery having a sore arm but never taking a backward step when we needed to arrest the ball from the opposition. It must be noted the boys advised me as Coach they scored many goals, the total amount unknown there was that many. Some say it was a huge number but definitely in double figures.Overall, the Emus delivered the ultimate result as everyone confirmed “they had fun”. Well done Emus. This weeks medal winner was Dylan McArdle.
Under 8s Lions
The U8s Lions met some quality opponents this week in a highly skilled Macquarie United side. Even though our troops went down 4-0, the effort, teamwork and sportsmanship shown was pleasing to see. This week’s Player of the Week went to Georgie Hemsworth, who was extremely busy in the second half as our keeper, saving 8 shots on goal.
We will enjoy the long weekend off, but will return keener than ever before.
Under 9s Lightning
In what was their best performance of the season, the Under 9’s Lightning defeated Macquarie Cheetahs 2-0, last Saturday. It was a terrific display from both teams. The game was played in competitive but cheerful spirit, and the enthusiasm shown by every single player on the field was a highlight.
Under 9s Lightning
Neither team scored in the first half, but in the second half Lightning moved ahead with their best goal of the season. Harry (backing up after playing with Thunder) pounced on a ball down the right wing, then crossed it to Elle who hammered home her first goal of the competition. There were hi-fives all round! The second goal came after a huge throw from Iggy rebounded off a Cheetah and into the net. Iggy, like every other Lightning player, was on fire, and earned player of the match; in truth every one of the Lightning team could have been awarded the medal.
Teamwork was a key, and the players are also beginning to understand positional play. Well done Nick, Louis, Jenson, Hayden, Elle, Harry and Iggy. It was a pleasure to watch you all play a great game and have a lot of fun.
Under 9s Thunder
Thunder had a sensational game against Eglinton Yellow last Saturday. The Thunder dominated in the first half and some nice combinations resulted in a goal to Harrison Leet. The Thunder had several other scoring opportunities and Isabella did a great job in goals to keep Eglinton at 0 at half time. Hayden and Mason did a great job in the backs whilst Charlie had a shot at goal that narrowly missed. Harrison switched to goal keeper at half time and was under pressure on many occasions. Eglinton levelled it at 1-1 with four minutes remaining so a tight finish was on the cards. Hugh, Felix and Emily linked together up front resulting in a fanstastic breakaway goal to Felix in the final moments of the match. The Thunder had to hold on for one final minute and a massive goal kick by Harrison got us out of trouble. Great spirit and fight was shown by all players and the team talk was positive as always. The highlight was definitely the celebratory embrace at the end of the game. Great work Thunder!
The Under 10’s soccer team adapted to modified field positions and quickly found a rhythm passing the ball from backs to mid-fielders to the forwards. The team goals for this game were to speak positively and to control the ball before passing. Last week the team lost quite a bit of possession with uncontrolled passing, but this week saw a significant improvement as evidenced by many shots at goal being made. It is not surprising that the team highlighted how improved ball control enabled more accurate passing and also meant more players were included in each play of the ball. The team also noted that they appreciated the affect ‘positive talk’ had on their experience of the game.
