It was so exciting to be in the sports complex and MPC last week listening to the cheers coming from the girls supporting each other.

Autumn Fixtures Round 5 – Football

Open BGGS Loss 2-0 Jessie Hudson Saskia Bilson
Intermediates BGGS Loss 4-3 Lydia Wynn Gabriella Durinic
Juniors BGGS Loss 6-0 Charlotte Wormald Amelia Patterson


All the girls who played tonight put up a massive fight, considering we were versing a school in the top two. The Juniors had some speedy strikers who were ready for the ball and strong defenders helping out their goalie. The Intermediates had a really good game. Unfortunately, the number of goals got the win however, they scored 2 goals against the other school which is amazing news. The Opens did not stop the whole game. Held up a really good fight and came out with a really well played game. Shoutout to Ella Woodbridge for stepping up and playing with the Opens and she really changed the dynamics of the game. Considering the team the Opens versed tonight scored 14 goals last year and only 2 this year is an extraordinary improvement for the team. Well done to all the girls who played tonight and get ready for Clayfield next week.

Our basketball girls played Somerville in last week’s QG round coming away with more experience under their belts despite a win or a loss. Our Opens team lost by a small margin and our 8A’s managed to reach a draw. The team spirit by our girls was unrivalled. As the season begins to wrap up with only 3 rounds left (2 which are home games), it’s nice to see the continual determination to get better as individuals and as a team through all the hours and early mornings each girl is putting in.

Our third last round for this year’s QG season was a notoriously hard one – Brisbane State High School. Our girls put on a good show for our second last home game and demonstrated great resilience and continuous efforts. The hustle, teamwork, and strategies used showed how much all of the early mornings have been paying off. Next week is our last away game against St Margaret’s and then the following is the final game of the season – at home against St Peter’s. Great work and a big thank you to everyone involved. We’re almost there!
