7A 5 St Margaret’s LOSS 26-18 Sophie Hateley Mischa McPhee
7B 5 St Margaret’s WIN 26-22 Aileen Hu Tyra Huang

7B played a great game and their defense was very good. Aileen Hu played very well showing exceptional dribbling and shooting skills. The most amazing thing to witness was the way the girls cheered for their teammates. The 10A girls had a nervous start to their game. However, at the beginning of the game they encouraged each other and even though they didn’t win, it was still a good game to watch. The Opens team had the skills to compete against St Margaret’s, however, they were not able to come away with the win. Their defense was near perfect. This was the first game as a new team and thus it was good opportunity to connect with each team member. The most effective player in the Opens team was Xenia, with her strong defense which encouraged the rest of the team to stay focused on the game. The Senior A team had an extremely close competitive game and even though they didn’t come away with the win they all walked off the courts with smiles on their faces as they had given their absolute best. Our 8A team had an emphatic victory and showed signs of being a very strong team in future years.

What a way to start the season! A great, well-deserved win by the Juniors this week against St Margaret’s. Congratulations to each girl for playing her heart out and giving it her all. Special mention must go to the defense line for their amazing effort in keeping that ball out of the goal. The intermediates had a great start to the season with a win against St Margaret’s. Throughout the game Maddy McClintock played extremely well and ended up scoring her first goal, and alongside her, Ruby Webster played her best game yet. Congratulations to the rest of the team for coming out on top. We look forward to playing more games and hope for a few more wins in the future. Well done girls and bring on next week! Let’s go the Roo Pen!

The 7A team performed brilliantly. Each player has great basketball ability, particularly with a lot of long-range shots making it in the net! The Opens team unfortunately had another close loss.

Well done girls for giving tonight’s game your all and putting in 110%, despite the loss against BGGS. Special mention must go to the midfield group who played a very strategic game and never gave up! You have all come so far in the past few weeks and you are only getting better! Congratulations girls and keep up the hard work. The intermediate girls from the Roo Pen played an amazing game, even though we ended up with a score of 4-1 to Brisbane Girls Grammar. They played a tough game and we all look forward to playing them again next year. A massive shout out must go to Charley West as this is her second game ever and she saved more goals than anyone could have hoped for. Another shout out must go to Bella Briggs who got pushed around a bit, but didn’t give up and kept playing better by the minute. Can’t wait to sing the red, gold, blue war cry with everyone next term, we’ll get them next time girls!
